Srinagar: Terming Kashmir as religious problem, Dukataran-e-Milat (DM) chief Syeda Asiya Andrabi today said armed militants were the true representatives of Kashmir and they only can solve the Kashmir issue. Addressing a media conference, she said that neither Geelani's Hurriet nor Abbas faction can solve Kashmir because they believe in 'dirty' politics. Lambasting both the factions of the Hurriet Conference, she said they are two facets of same coin. Andrabi noted that Kashmir is a religious issue and jehad is the best way to settle this problem. Fire brand leader also said that politicians cannot solve the issue and militants are capable of handling Kashmir issue in the right manner. The DM chief said UN has lost its relevance and it cannot solve Kashmir issue. Describing Pakistan as stooge of America , she said Islamabad is compromising on its national and Islamic interests. She maintained that Pakistan was considered as citadel of Islamic uma, but it has changed its policy and under American pressure it is killing militants of different nationalities. Andrabi also lashed out at chief minister Mufti Mohommad Sayeed and his daughter Mehbooba Mufti for fostering indecency in Kashmir . She said bringing bollywood stars and organizing indecent and obscene show will not solve Kashmir problem. The DM chief said Mufti and his daughter are organizing a grand show in Bakashi stadium where several bollywood stars would take part. She urged the people not to attend the show. Andrabi threatened to come on streets to protest against the obscenity.
