Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) has termed Indian home minister Rajnath Singh’s assertion on Kashmir that it was always with India and will remain a part of it as “egoistic approach of India.” In a statement Hurriyat said that such rhetoric and parroting can’t change the reality about Kashmir dispute.
Ridiculing the statement of Rajnath Singh wherein he has said referendum must be conducted in Pakistan, Hurriyat said that India is aware about the possible results of referendum in Kashmir and that is the reason they are resorting to such meaningless statements.
“Kashmir is internationally accepted issue and deferring this issue led to an uncertainty in state and proved a squabble and bone of contention between two countries,” Hurriyat said.
“It is because of the Kashmir issue that both countries are investing a large amount of budget on arms and ammunitions, while as majority in India are a living a miserable life. They even lack basic amenities to sustain their life and virtually facing starvation like situation,” said Hurriyat.
Commenting over the statement of Rajnath Singh, Hurriyat said that he is no more different than Late Sardar Patel as he also used to speak same language. “However, it has not changed the ground realities nor people of Jammu Kashmir will succumb to any pressure.”
Hurriyat said “uncertainty is prevailing since half a century, it continues and said that harsh and egotistical statements never change ground realities, instead it will badly effect the position of India and will raise questions on its claims for being a big democracy in the world.”
Hurriyat said India is aspiring for membership in the UNO and on the other hand resorting to military might and smashing all basic rights in Jammu and Kashmir.
“India instead of blaming Pakistan should realize that it is their arrogant approach creating impediments and hurdles in peaceful resolution of Kashmir issue and Pakistan has always pleaded for peaceful settlement. They always followed positive strategy about Kashmir issue while as India always adopted egoistic approach and talks in terms of war,” the statement added.
