SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat president Syeda Asiya Andrabi on Sunday ridiculed chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayed on his assertions that people of the state have rejected two-nation theory saying that Indian leaders should not then shy away from holding a plebiscite in the state.
In a statement, Andrabi said that if Mufti and his “Indian masters” were so confident about it then they should allow a plebiscite in the state.
She said that the people of the state were “actually struggling” to get a chance to adopt the two-nation theory.
“The people of Jammu Kashmir were never allowed to decide about their future though they have time and again been exhibiting their desire of getting free and merging with the Pakistan that has been carved on the basis of two-nation theory,” Andrabi said.
“People here have been demanding freedom and expressing their desire to merge with Pakistan right from the day India occupied this land. Countless sacrifices have been given to achieve this goal,” she said.
She said that people like Mufti Sayed were not ready to accept the facts, even after knowing and understanding everything.
“Why do Kashmiri people celebrate 14th August and observe 15th August as black day, if they had rejected the two nation theory as claimed by Mufti,” Andrabi said.
“If Mufti really believes what he said then he should suggest his masters at New Delhi to allow a plebiscite. Let the whole world know what the people of Kashmir have rejected and what they are eager to adopt formally,” she said.
Andrabi said that the people of Kashmir were not even consulted when Muslim Conference was converted into National conference.
“It should not be treated to the decision of Jammu Kashmir. It was a treachery done by Sheikh Abdullah,” she said.
Andrabi said that India and its people should know that “Muftis,Sheikhs and all others like them are deceiving them by showing a rosy picture of Kashmir while as the fact of the matter is that Kashmiris believe in the two-nation theory and want their fate to be decided on the basis of this theory only.”
