Islamabad: Syed Salahuddin, chief of Pakistan-based militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen, has warned that any one opposed to the presence of militant groups in Pakistan would not stay in power in the country for long. "Any one who dares to oppose jihadi, (holy war) groups can never remain in power for a single moment as jihadi culture was flourishing among the youth," he told reporters in Peshawar yesterday. "No government in Pakistan can prevent us from the struggle of the right to self-determination in Kashmir", he said, adding that the policies of the present government in Pakistan were more realistic than that of the former 'so-called" peoples representatives.
