Srinagar: Reacting over the statement of General Rawat, the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik on Monday said the “horrible desire of Indian army chief to kill every Kashmiri” shows “criminal” mindset of Indian rulers and their forces.
Rawat had on Sunday said, “I wish these people, instead of throwing stones at us, were firing weapons at us. Then I would have been happy. Then I could do what I (wanted to do).”
Malik in a statement issued here said, “Nations that decide to resist oppression and tyranny cannot be defeated by (such) intimidations. No one should be surprised on (army chief’s) statement as India is slowly unveiling itself as a fascist state where new kinds of Hitler and Mussolini are taking birth under the garb of so-called biggest democracy.”
He said Kashmiris have been facing “Indian wrath” for the last 70 years but have not surrendered before the might of India despite all its “ugliness”. “General Rawat should remember that Kashmiris will continue to fight ugly Indian occupation despite all these intimidations,” he said.
“The recent statements (by) Indian political and military leadership justifying Kashmiri killings and human rights abuses bear a testimony to the fact that this so-called biggest democracy is fast changing into a fascist dictatorship and time is not far when Indian people and the international community, which for its business interests is not paying any heed to these ridiculous statements and barbaric acts, will taste its bitterness and wrath too,” Malik said.
