He used to support the frontline Jehadis, but very few people know about his contributions,? the JKLF chief reportedly said at an exhibition of 1.5 million signatures by Kashmiris demanding their involvement in the dialogue process.
According to the Daily Times, the separatist leader praised the Pakistani leader for his immense contribution to the armed struggle in Kashmir.

Pakistan Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, who also visited the exhibition, called for a solution that helped the Kashmiris and fulfilled their wishes. Committing his country'ssupport to the armed struggle in Kashmir, Aziz said that the Kashmir dispute must be resolved with the consent of Pakistan, India and the Kashmiris.
