New Delhi:Indian Famous Religious Muslim Organization Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind (JuH) on Thursday came out in support of the Narendra Modi led Government`s decision of scrapping provisions of Article 370, saying Kashmir is an “integral part” of the India and the welfare of people in the Valley lies in their integration with India.

In the resolution passed in its annual general meeting held in Capital New Delhi, JuH rallied for a united India.

“It is our belief that the welfare of the people of the Jammu and Kashmir lies in getting integrated with India. The inimical forces and the neighbouring country are hell bent upon destroying Kashmir. The oppressed and beleaguered people of Kashmir are stuck between opposing forces,” it said, without mentioning Article 370.

” Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind (JuH) stands steadfastly for the unity and integrity of the country and has accorded it paramount importance. As such it can never support any separatist movement, rather it considers such movements not only harmful for India but also for the people of Kashmir,” it said.

It also said that the current situation in Kashmir demands that peaceful initiatives be launched to maintain peace and security in the region, especially in the view of the repercussions of clash of “atomic powers”.

The Jama`t Ulama-e-Hind (JuH) also appealed to the government of India to protect the people of Kashmir and their property while respecting human rights.

“It must use every possible constitutional means for bringing back normalcy in the region and winning the hearts of the people of Kashmir,” it said.

Its here to mention that Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind is considered one of the most influential Muslim groups in India. Belonging to the Deobandi school, the Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind was founded in 1919. In late August, Maulana Arshad Madani, president of the Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, held a long meeting with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat in Delhi, where they reportedly discussed ways to promote communal harmony.
