Jammu [India], Sept. 4 (ANI): Coming down heavily on Syed Salahuddin for threatening to train more Kashmiri suicide bombers, who would turn the valley into "a graveyard for Indian forces", the National Panthers Party (NPP) on Sunday demanded appropriate action against the Hizbul Mujahideen chief at the national as well as at the international level.

NPP leader Harsh Dev Singh told ANI the terrorist openly issuing threats of turning Kashmir into a graveyard for the security forces needs to be taken very seriously by the state and the government of India.

"Appropriate action at the national as well as international level must be taken," he added.

Singh said if the United States can strike Afghanistan to eliminate Osama bin Laden then why not India.

"Why not India take up the issue with the international community and convince them that all such terrorists like Salauddin and Hafiz Saeed are also required to be dealt with in the same way in the interest of peace.not only in the subcontinent, but the world over," he added.

Salahuddin has said he will turn entire Kashmir into a "graveyard" for the Indian armed forces.

In an interview with a leading English daily, Salahuddin, disregarding the all-party meet, said talks would be futile and the only answer to the issue of Kashmir was militancy.

"The Kashmiri leadership, people and mujahideen should know there is no formal, peaceful way," the daily quoted him as saying.

While the all-party meet is an attempt to assuage the situation in the Valley, Salahuddin has warned of his "might", threatening to "take the entire region into [militancy's] fold".

He also said that the militancy movement took a sharp turn after the Hizbul militant Burhan Wani was killed on July 8, the daily reported.

Calling the Valley a concentration camp, he said use of more force by the army will only strengthen the militancy movement.

Kashmir has been on the boil since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8 with curfew continuing in parts of the valley for the 58th day today. (ANI)
