Dialogue with fascism useless: Malik
SRINAGAR: Paying tributes to former JKLF supremo Amanullah Khan on his first death anniversary, chairman JKLF Yasin Malik described him as a legend who not only led the nation on political front but was also a dynamic diplomat championing the cause of Kashmir on international front.
A statement issued by JKLF here said that a number of leaders from the resistance camp, activists, intellectuals and other members of the civil society attended a memorial function organised by the party. Paying tributes to Khan, speakers described him as a noble son of soil, who from youth to his death remained steadfast and did not compromise on his principles despite hardships.
Hailing his contribution to Kashmir, speakers described him as an ideologue, a great orator, prolific writer, a high class intellectual, a great patriot, a teacher, a political thinker and “above all a humble Muslim who wrote hundreds of books, and used all his abilities for upholding the cause and interests of Kashmiris.”
“He was truly a pioneer, a herald of free Jammu Kashmir, a bright example of consistent struggle, a prolific politician and an intellectual of great repute, a diplomat and a leader whose struggle and sacrifices will always be remembered,” Malik said on the ocassion. “Life and struggle of Aman sahib is a testimony of his resilience and today when the struggle for freedom has entered into a new phase, we need to look and take note of his life and struggle.”
Reacting to state government’s references to Vajpayee doctrine, JKLF chairman Yasin Malik Tuesday said that dialogue with fascism was of no use, and only a tripartite dialogue without any pre-conditions can lead to a resolution of Kashmir dispute.
“We are being threatened, intimidated and harassed and told that Kashmiri resistance will be dealt with iron hands. On the other hand we are being tempted in the name of so-called Vajpayee doctrine and dialogue. I want to clear here that dialogue with fascism is of no use and not possible and increase in oppression, suppression and tyranny will never succeed in breaking the will of Kashmiris.” Malik said at a memorial function held on the anniversary of JKLF leader Amanullah Khan.
“Kashmir is a dispute which needs a resolution and unless and until all three parties of this dispute including Kashmir, Pakistan and India sit down together on the same table without any precondition, dialogue is not possible and can never deliver.”
Reacting to the formation of a “Jan Sena” to fight stone pelting in Kashmir, Malik said: “Lakhs of Indian army, paramilitary and police forces tried all their oppression and tyranny to curb Kashmiris but have failed and now some joker Sena is being sponsored by fascist rulers to fight against Kashmiris which is ludicrous and comical.”
