Srinagar, Mar 16: In an conversation with an Intelligence Bureau (IB) official, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani rejected talks offer with New Delhi by the former and termed all these attempts as futile, saying it is nothing more than a tactic” to buy time by New Delhi.
Chief Spokesperson G A Gulzar in a statement disclosed that on Thursday night an IB official proposed a dialogue between New Delhi and Syed Ali Geelani, however he refused to talk, saying unless and until the Kashmir dispute is addressed in its historical perspective and asked India to acknowledge the disputed status of the Kashmir and begin demilitarization to hold a referendum.
Geelani made it clear that Kashmir issue has turned into a flash point and unless India accepts its disputed nature, no progress is expected and horrors of war will haunt people living in sub-continent. He further said that people of J&K are peace-loving, and Indian leaders can play a key role (in resolving the issue) by respecting their aspirations, instead of adopting coercive measures.
They should shun fanatical politics because the need of the hour is to acknowledge the ground realities of the long-pending Jammu and Kashmir dispute,” Syed Ali Geelani said to IB official.
Kashmiri people have never accepted or acknowledged the forced occupation of India and they are at war with this country (India) for the past seven decades, quoting Syed Ali Geelani having said to IB official. We time and again demanded that people should be allowed to express their aspiration about political future and destiny of state, Syed Ali Geelani said.
Syed Ali Geelani addressing IB official said that to continue its forced military occupation, India is not only inflicting worst oppression and atrocities upon the Kashmiri nation but this country is supressing our youth and killing them on mere pretext.
Syed Ali Geelani addressing intelligence officer said that it is very unfortunate that tall claims of Indian leadership about being a largest democracy, is nothing but hoax, as political and its army leadership are following fascist mindset saying that it is extremely unwise to deny political space and muzzle genuine voices, saying people and leadership are reeling under emergency and martial law like situations.
Lawlessness is at its peak, said Syed Ali Geelani, saying the rampant use of black laws like POTA, AFSPA has become the order of the day and NIA during its raids arrested resistance leadership on fabricated charges and detained them in Tihar jail. The detainees in Tihar and other jails are meted out will inhuman and harsh treatment and denied basic amenities as guaranteed in UN charter, said Geelani. (KNB)
