Srinagar, November 29: Committing on the Pak Premier Kashmir statement, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani said that it is realistic and Kashmir is in fact a bone of contention between two nuclear neighbours.
In a statement issued to KNO, he said that “it is the undoubted historic fact that this sore in the shape of Kashmir continues to bleed right from the birth of both sovereign countries.” Terming the statement of India’s Ministry of External Affairs that the “Jammu and Kashmir was integral and inalienable part of India” as ‘brazen lie and cunningly deceitful’, which “India arrogantly parrots for the last 71 years, but has not changed the contours and dimensions of this long pending dispute.”
He said that there are ample proofs and concrete indications that prove beyond doubt that this piece of land is a disputed territory. Geelani said that “death and destruction on both sides, by their armed collusion, unrealistic race of weaponry especially by India, huge and fatty defense budget and the 71 year long and bloody struggle of Kashmir is visible to everybody and India too knows it well, but its biased mindset and myopic attitude stops it from making a bold and realistic confession.”
He said that “once again hand of friendship extended by Pakistan has been turned down by the rulers, which speaks of their euphoric and proudly attitude of power and might.”
Geelani said that “accusing its neighbours of violation of International laws is not only hypocratic, but funny as well, because India despite being a signatory to these laws has itself crushed them under military might and has emerged as an Asian monster trying to engulf its small and weak neighbours and forcefully occupying a helpless small population of a few millions peaceful citizens.”
Pro-freedom leader said that “rulers always parrot these said lines of integral and inalienable part, because they know from the inner core of their heart that we should continue to repeat the claim of what actually is not ours, otherwise they never say these words about rest of their states.”
He said that statements of leaders regarding Jammu and Kashmir make no difference, because people of Jammu and Kashmir are pursuing their right to self-determination and will continue till the dispute is resolved as per their aspirations.
Meanwhile, Geelani condoled the demise of mother of renowned columnist and writer Mohammad Shafi Mistry (Naqeeb).
Talking on telephone Geelani prayed for eternal peace of departed soul and courage to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss.(KNO)
