Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin on Friday ruled out ceasefire in Kashmir.

Salahuddin, who is also chairman of the United Jihad Council, said, "Can't the two -- dialogue and armed struggle -- go together?"

According to leading Pakistani newspaper the Daily Times, in an indirect reference to America's role in resolving the Kashmir issue, he said, "They could use their clout positively."

Asked about suicide attacks, he said, "The life of a mujahid is very precious. It should not be put to stake for a petty gain, but a colossal loss."

In a statement that could generate widespread anger among pro-independence leaders, the Hizb chief said, "Pakistan is not Pakistan without Kashmir."
