AI has received responses from the Hizbul Mujahideen and other components of the United Jihad Council indicating that they support a peaceful boycott of elections in Jammu and Kashmir. AI reiterates its call on the seven armed opposition groups - Hizb-ul-Mujahideen Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen, Al-Jihad, Al-Barq, Hizbollah, Al-Umer and Hizb-ul-Momineen - to publicly withdraw their death threat against civilian electoral officials who carry out polling duties during the forthcoming elections in the Kashmir valley.
