Supreme Commander Hizb ul Mujahideen's Statement

Supreme Commander Hizb ul Mujahideen's Statement

Unilateral Cease-fire declared by the most effective resistance movement Hizbul – Mujahideen in the interest of International peace in general and peace in South Asia in particular is due to terminate at 1700 hrs . on 8th of August 2000 . As the matter is of Supreme interest for every well wisher of peace , I have thought it expedient to approach you to act in the interest of global peace by resolving 53 years old Kashmir conflict by a meaningful i.e. tripartite dialogue . It would not be out of place to mention that India has failed to respond categorically to our offer of peace and has dallied – dallied and thus failing to give peace a chance .

Let the world community decide by itself that who is laying impediments. Intransigence is not an answer to a respectful urge for ending the strife . We have combated with the Indian forces for the last eleven years . We are still in a position to continue our targeted combat missions and stun India . But we kept our gun silent temporarily on 24th of July for a proper response Indian Prime Ministers statement at Pahalgam on 3rd August 2000 that the dialogue with Hizbul-Mujahideen will be within the parameters of Insaniyat ( Humaneness ) and not constitution had produced a flicker of hope that India showed willingness towards our demand of unconditional negotiations and we had appreciated it . But back in Delhi Mr. Vajpayee has made a U-turn by interpreting his offer as within the framework of Indian constitution . I quote the Indian Express dated 7th of August 2000 "Vajpayee told reporters here there was no need for anyone else to come in the talks between the Centre and the Hizbul. He was specially asked about HM Chief Syed Salahuddin's statement in Islamabad asking India to get into tripartite talks to resolve the Kashmir issue. Vajpayee, who had on a visit to Pahalgam earlier this week made it clear that Government would continue the peace process in Jammu and Kashmir. He ruled out talks with Pakistan"

They intend to tie the affair in a bilateral dialogue which is not an acceptable preposition . Kashmir tangle can be solved only by a just , negotiating process involving all the three parties Kashmiri’s , India and Pakistan . Had India accepted a tripartite dialogue the other organisations involved in the armed struggle could be convinced for a comprehensive peace. We hope you would use the diplomatic influence of your government to persuade India to accept the rationale behind our unilateral cease-fire .i.e. peaceful , acceptable, permanent settlement of Jammu & Kashmir dispute through a tripartite dialogue .

By now it should be crystal clear that India has demonstrated its traditional intransigence and our sincerity is unquestionable .

With best regard

Syed Sallah-ud-Din
