SRINAGAR: Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Syedah Aasiyeh Andrabi, on Monday said the visiting all-party delegation of India got a “clear and unanimous” message from the Valley that “there will be no talks until India accepts JK as a disputed territory”.
“The people of Kashmir, its leadership, the employees, the patients in hospital, the traders, and the civil society sent a clear and a unanimous message to the all-party delegation that there will be no talks until JK’s disputed nature isn’t acknowledged by India,” she said in a statement issued here.
She said that the people of the state have shown to the world there was no difference of opinion or thought when it came to opposing “Indian sinister policies” in Kashmir.
“There is only one voice which says that Kashmir has been illegally occupied by India for the past 70 years, so acknowledging JK as disputed territory will be a first step towards resolving this dispute,” she added.
She said it was “funny” that a regime that has killed “lakhs of our children and maimed countless innocents” was talking about humanity. “People who have been massacring humanity across JK for the past seven decades are talking about humanity. Don’t give us lectures on humanity, we are Muslims and a Muslim respects humanity more than anyone else,” she said.
“We are not fighting for sustaining the propaganda called ‘Kashmiriyat’. This movement isn’t there to defend these vague terms like Kashmiriyat but it is for safeguarding the dignity of lakhs of Kashmiris who want nothing but end to the illegal occupation,” she added.
Dukhtaran chief said the visit of the delegation proved to be “one of the deadliest and bloodiest in the ongoing resistance movement” in Kashmir.
“More than 1,500 persons were injured critically. On one hand India is using brute force against innocent, unarmed civilians and on the other hand, its shameless minister is giving lectures about humanity. Shamelessness has a limit. Isn’t this man ashamed of what his forces are doing here and what he is saying? Where does their humanity go when they murder Kashmiris in cold blood every other day,” she said.
Responding to the statement by Singh that ‘India won’t compromise on Kashmir’, she said: “In the past two months, 73 people have been killed, thousands are injured, everyone is suffering, but this fight and resistance movement will continue until Kashmiris achieve their right to determine their future.”
She said that the people from Pir Panjal and Chenab Valley have clearly stated that they stand with Kashmir and want to stay with Kashmir forever.
Andrabi urged the people to “completely boycott” the pro-India politicians.
