Srinagar: The United Jihad Council (UJC), a grouping of militant outfits, on Tuesday said those using social media and other means to 'malign the image of the resistance leadership and pro-freedom activists are harming the freedom struggle and these acts are unpardonable'. In a statement, UJC chief Syed Salahuddin said, 'Agencies were using paid agents to exterminate pro-freedom supporters and activistssuch elements can't hide themselves from the nation.' He appealed to the 'freedom-loving people to discourage such elements'. CNS said, quoting Salahuddin, that 'Agencies have started using its agents on the pattern of infamous Ikhwan commander Kuka Parray to defame and target pro-freedom activists in field and through main-stream and social media'. 'The killings of Hakim-ur-Sultani of Sopore, Dr Abdul Ahad Ganaie of Lolab and Asif Nazir Dar are part of this conspiracy. In such circumstances, it has become inevitable to deal with these elements,' he said. 'People of Kashmir have immensely suffered at the hands of New Delhi. Pakistan should adopt a new strategy to attract the attention of the world towards rights violations in Kashmir,' he said. The UJC also paid homage to two militants, Liyakat Ahmed and Furqan Ahmed, who were killed in Galoora encounter. UJC general secretary Sheikh Jameel-ur-Rehman on Tuesday condemned the killing of Lolab resident Abdul Ahad Ganie in Khanyar area of Srinagar, saying the killings of Islamic scholars and pro-resistance people won't frighten Kashmiri people. Ganie, a resident of Tewan Mohalla, Lalpora Lolab in Kupwara district, was shot in the head while he was driving a car (DL3CAY 6352) in Khanyar area of the Srinagar city. Reports said that Ganie, who was pursuing PhD from Aligarh Muslim University, was visiting his in-laws in Khanyar. In a statement, Rehman said that this is not the first time that unknown gunmen have been blamed for killing of well-wishers of Kashmir movement . 'These unknown gunmen are the agents of forces and are carrying out massacre of Kashmiris in a planned manner,' he said. He said the 'cruel killings of Islamic scholars and pro-movement people would give impetus to Kashmir struggle.'
