US sanctions on Hizbul Mujahideen a nexus against Kashmiris struggle: Shaukat Butt

Islamabad: Secretary General Democratic Political Movement (DPM) Shaukat Hussain butt has dubbed the decision of the Trumph administration decision to sanction Hizbul Mujahideen as a “terrorist Organization’ as a travesty of International Laws and the UN Charter.

Butt while condemning the state department’s act termed the designation as unjustified, to appease India for financial gains and countering China. He said Hizbul Mujahideen is the largest indigenous Mujahideen outfit fighting against the Indian occupations troops who are brazenly involved in the worst human rights violations to perpetuate their illegal occupation of the state.

While questioning the justification of the US designation, saying the Hizbul Mujahideen is solely struggling  for the “freedom” of Jammu and Kashmir and it was not linked to any terror group and had not resorted to any action outside Jammu and Kashmir, he claimed.

He said US terrorist tag on Hizbul Mujahideen and its chief will not impact the peoples struggle for right to self determination and the centrality of the Kashmir dispute. People of Jammu Kashmir are striving for the right guaranteed to them by UN and Indian leadership is hellbent to defame the peoples struggle at international level by associating it with the notorious terrorist outfits.
