The Chairman of Muslim Conference, Shabbir Ahmed Dar and Ummat-e-Islami in their separate statements in Srinagar said that the collaborators of India like Altaf Bukhari, Usman Majeed and others would face the wrath of the people of Kashmir for becoming a pawn in the hands of fascist Hindu rulers in India.

Shabbir Ahmed Dar said these stooges cannot change the ground realities in Kashmir. Ummat-e-Islami Spokesman, Riaz-ul-Qadri reminded Altaf Bukhari and his accomplices of the lesson given by the Kashmiris to the Indian proxies like Shaikh Abdullah and Bakhshi Ghulam Muhammad for facilitating India’s illegal occupation over Jammu and Kashmir. »
