Syed Salahuddin, chief of Hizb-ul Mujahedeen, said that he was sure Pakistan will never hand him over to India.

"I am fully confident that the leadership of Pakistan and the people of Pakistan will not hand me over to India," Salahuddin, sporting a long, unruly black beard, said in an interview with Pakistan's Geo TV.

In the interview, Salahuddin demanded that India recognise Kashmiris as a party to the dispute and settle it with "sincerity and seriousness."

Asked whether he had ever had any concerns that Pakistan might, under pressure, hand him over to India, Salahuddin said he "never for a moment" feared it.
