Srinagar, January 04: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani, reacting to the Union Home Minister’s statement in parliament wherein he had said that “if the doors would not have been shut by Hurriyat, Kashmir issue could have been resolved”, said that “Indian leadership has now openly admitted that pro-freedom leaders are the real representatives and main stakeholders of Kashmir and the issue cannot be resolved without them.”
In a statement issued to KNO, he said that the rulers are very well aware of the fact that people’s aspiration, emotions and sentiments are represented by pro-freedom leadership. “This acceptance of the ground realities should have culminated in practicality, when Indian leaders talk about “dialogue” to resolve the long pending dispute,” he said.
Regarding the Home Minister’s statement about the dialogue and shutting doors on Parliamentary delegation, Geelani said that “the government never officially invited us, but at the same time blame us of rejecting it. It is not only shameful but speaks volumes about their truthfulness, sincerity and clarity.”
“They tried to play a game of win only for them as they just wanted to discredit us as whether we accept their offer of dialogue which never came or we ignore their casual personal gestures,” he said.
Geelani further said that “India is scared of any meaningful dialogue with Hurriyat and Pakistan, as they have occupied this land illegally and forcefully by their military might using repeated lies and unabated surplus violence.”
“The sole intention of the delegation was to act as firefighting just to derail and fizzle out the momentum through these age old tactics, as they have been doing whenever Kashmiris stood up for their basic rights,” he said.
He said that in a similar situation of 2010 people’s uprising, we have warmly welcomed every delegation and had thread bear discussion, but they never responded back.
Hurriyat chairman said that “seriousness of our occupier could well be judged by the fact that local stooge in the chair at that time couldn’t dare to invite the pro-freedom leaders in her official capacity, but very cunningly did it as head of a regional party, because that would definitely have annoyed her partners in crime.”
He said that “propagators of joining North and South pole, very shortly realized the fact that fate of henchmen at the hands of oppressor is always same, be it any towering political legend or a fresh miniature, that is why they again started to do politics on dead ones.”
“We are fighting for a just cause and no oppressive measure can deter us from pursuing our path and our nation has proved it beyond doubt for last 71 years,” Geelani said.
Meanwhile, Geelani in his telephonic address to the mourners of slain militants Zubair Ahmad and Arshid Ahmad who were killed in Gulshanpora Tral gunfight, said, “India is using an imperialistic attitude in Jammu and Kashmir to crush our movement of right to self-determination.”
“Since 1947 our nation has rendered unparalleled sacrifices, but India has not been able to suppress our emotions with this brutality,” he said, paying tributes to slain militants.
“Our youth lay their lives to end the forced occupation and reiterated his pledge to take the ongoing movement to its logical end. We will never allow any body to barter with the precious blood of martyrs,” he said, adding that “we need to be aware of this and we are duty bound to safe guard their sacrifices and should desist from such activities which prove harmful for our movement.”(KNO)
