Srinagar, June 12: Terming Kashmir dispute as “above the Indian constitution”, Hurriyat Conference (G) on Tuesday said that the only acceptable solution to this vexed issue lies in the compliance of the United Nations Resolutions on Kashmir.
Hurriyat (G) chief spokesperson G. A. Gulzar in a statement issued to GNS while elaborating the “crystal clear” stand of the amalgam said that the five-point formula presented by it in 2010 provides a baseline for any dialogue with India.
He clarified that this formula lays down the criteria that “unless India accepts Kashmir as a dispute, it would be an exercise in futility to talk about meaningless bilateral talks with India”.
The spokesperson said India suffers from “arrogance of power” so its leadership is hell-bent to issue declarations to kill the people of Kashmir by tagging them as stone pelters.
Regretting this “inhuman” attitude to kill people for demanding their basic right, the spokesperson said that Kashmir history has witnessed dozens of Jalianwala Bagh massacres, but have not succumbed to any “tyranny”.
“About six lakh people have been martyred, lakhs of people incarcerated and tortured ruthlessly in interrogation centres, thousands have been victimized with extrajudicial killings, thousands of youth have been rendered disabled, chastity of women violated and is used as a war strategy while property worth billions of rupees has been damaged,” he said.
“These exemplary sacrifices have not been offered for any political adjustment within the Indian constitution but for the fulfillment of achieving of the right to self-determination,” the spokesperson said. (GNS)
