UJC Retracts Stand after Pressure from ISI The United Jihad Council appealed to people to follow protest programmes announced by the Hurriyat leadership
in Kashmir. In an e-mailed statement to local news agency KNS, a UJC spokesman said: “The UJC has full confidence on the joint platform of Hurriyat leadership and respects their strategy and protest programmes. We had given a programme from Jul 8 to
13 which gave rise to misunderstandings. So, the protest programmes will be observed and restricted to the Base Camp only. And the programmes for ground (Kashmir) will be decided by the Hurriyat leadership.
