Neither Kashmir nor Kashmiris and Kashmiryat belong to India

How can
India, the colonizer of Kashmir represent the colonized nation of
Kashmir? Indian home minister and other leaders statements regarding
Kashmir can only be termed as ridiculous and an affront to the
collective conscience of Kashmiris //Muhammad Yasin Malik

Srinagar,  May 22: Neither Kashmir nor Kashmiris and Kashmiryat belong to
India. How can India, the colonizer of Kashmir represent the colonized
nation of Kashmir? This was stated by the chairman JKLF Muhammad Yasin
Malik while reacting to the recent assertions of Indian home minister
and other leaders about Kashmir. Replying to the comments of Indian
home minister Rajnath Singh  who yesterday said that Kashmir,
Kashmiris and Kashmiriyat belong to them (India) only, JKLF chairman
said that we want to ask him how is Kashmir theirs, how is Kashmiriyat
theirs and how do Kashmiris belong to them. He said that Indian
parliament, Indian leaders like Nehru, United Nations and other forums
time and again have pledged Kashmiris their right of self
determination but when Kashmiris ask for fulfillment of these pledges
and covenants, they are being killed, maimed, blinded, arrested
maligned, humiliated and terrorized by the so-called biggest democracy
of India. So Kashmir does not belong to India but to Kashmiris who are
its masters and heirs, added Yasin Malik. On Rajnath Singh’s
assertions that Kashmiris also belong to them (India), JKLF chairman
said that if Indian home minister is so sure of Kashmiris being with
India, he and his government should not hesitate from giving Kashmiris
the right of self determination that has been promised to them by not
only the international community but by Indian parliament and its
erstwhile leaders. JKLF chairman said that if Kashmiris are with India
then Indian leadership should feel safe in providing them the right to
choose their future because according to Rajnath Singh’s belief then,
Kashmiris will vote in favor of India. Terming the claims of some
Indian leaders that resistance in Kashmir is only within three
districts as laughable; JKLF chairman said that if these Indians
believe in their own sayings then they should be more than happy to
hold referendum in Kashmir and belie our claim. On Indian home
minister’s claim that Kashmiryat also belongs to India, JKLF chairman
said that Kashmiryat is another name for humanity and it is our belief
that Kashmiryat is about adhering to our religion Islam and means to
safeguard the interests, lives, honor, dignity and properties of
minorities living alongside us. Kashmiryat is integral to our
liberation struggle and is guided by Islamic principles of humanism,
tolerance and respect for all our minorities and the marginalized. How
can those people following fascism claim Kashmiryat to be theirs, who
massacred Lakhs of Jammu Muslims in 1947 and whose hands are soaked
with the blood of Muslims, Dalits, Christians and who are lynching
innocents under the garb of saving cows. JKLF chairman said that on
these facts we want to tell Indian home minister and other Indian
leaders that neither Kashmir belongs to them, nor do Kashmiris and
Kashmiryat belong to them(India). In fact Kashmir belongs to Kashmiris
who are the guardians of its land and its traditions of tolerance,
hospitality and respect for human dignity. Without resolving Kashmir
issue no one can dream of lasting peace, prosperity and stability in
south Asia.
