Islamabad: Chairman of the United Jihad Council, an association of 15 Islamic terrorist groups and chief of banned terrorist outfit Hizbul Mujaheedin, Sayed Salahuddin said on Monday that anti-India terrorists get trained at 'mobile training camps' inside India and not in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). 'We have no training camp in Azad (Pakistan's) Kashmir,' said Salahuddin. He was addressing a gathering in Rawalpindi. Salahuddin said 'we have mobile training camps' in Jammu and Kashmir, according to two Urdu-language newspapers. Salahuddin said India's accusation that training camps were being operated in PoK was 'propaganda to get Pakistan declared a terrorist state'.
