MUZAFFARABAD – Chief of Hizbul Mujahideen (HuM) Syed Salahuddin was warmly welcomed in a rally to respond US-India joint notification designating him as a ‘Specially Designated Global Terrorist’ (SDGT).
The commander addressed a press conference on Saturday at the Central Press Club here in the Azad Jammu Kashmir capital where he said the American decision to designate him as ‘global terrorist’ will not make any difference to the legitimate struggle he led for freedom in the disputed state of Jammu Kashmir.
Earlier, the HuM chief received a warm welcome in Muzaffarabad and at many spots people showered rose petals on his vehicle.
In his traditional appearance, he rose out of the sunroof of his vehicle and waved to the crowd and made victory signs.
At the presser, Salahuddin termed the Donald Trump administration’s move as idiotic taken to please and satisfy Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi without any reasoning and grounds. He was designated as a ‘global terrorists’ hours ahead of Trump-Modi meeting.
“We have slapped this idiotic step back on the face of both leaders to make the world understand that this foolishness can neither weaken our resolve, nor stop the freedom struggle and the target-oriented actions by the freedom fighters,” he said.
