Hizb chief Syed-Salah-ud-din

United Jihad Council (UJC) on Thursday paid tributes to the slain militants who were killed in separate encounter with government forces at Tral and Budgam.

In an e-mailed statement issued to KNS, UJC spokesman, Syed Sadaqat Hussain said, “Despite having less ammunition, the militants prefer to sacrifice their lives rather than shaking hands with the enemies.”

He said that “the militants are benefactors of the Kashmiri nation and the sacrifice rendered by militants have exposed India’s face at international level.”

“Indian forces have become mentally disordered due to the use of military might and the atrocities on people are glaring example of their mental disturbance,” he said, adding that “the militants have proved that they will continue the struggle their last breathe.”

“The struggle has proved that every single drop of a militant is giving birth to militants,” he said.
