Delhi left Kashmiris to die in floods: Geelani

Srinagar: Criticizing the policy makers of New Delhi, chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani on Monday said that at the time of floods, they left Kashmiris to die and after the floods they are forcing people to die of starvation.
“The fanatic and communal rulers of India are very much satisfied with the situation in Kashmir and they want the people of Kashmir to struggle for decades for their rehabilitation and they will be forced to live a miserable life,” Geelani said in a statement here.
He said the heavy destruction caused in Pakistan-administered Kashmir due to the earthquake of October 2005 was compensated within a few years and it all happened because of the international aid and Pakistan government freely allowed that relief.
He said that the policy of India is contrary to that and they do not want the international aid to reach the flood affected people of Jammu and Kashmir. “They are of the view that the poverty will bring down the freedom sentiments of Kashmiris and they will compromise over the Indian slavery. However these people are living in the fool’s paradise and they should be knowing that this attitude of India during and after the floods have strengthened the resolve of the people of Kashmir and have vindicated our belief that India only want land and they have nothing to do with the difficulties of the people,” Geelani said.
Meanwhile, a delegation led by Tehreek-e-Hurriyat general secretary Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai on Monday visited the flood-hit areas of Anantnag like Tulkhan, Kanjigund, Naibasti Islamabad, Khanbal and Dangerpora and distributed relief material among the affected people while a team led by district president Srinagar Raja Mehraj-ud-din distributed ration kits and other relief material among the people of Suthrashahi.
