SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Saturdaycastigated former chief minister Omar Abdullah for his tweet that Pakistan was “fudging facts” regarding the UN resolutions on Kashmir. The party termed Omar’s comment as “childish”.
A Hurriyat (G) spokesman in a statement said that not only Pakistani leadership but everyone in Kashmir knows the course for the implementation of the UN resolutions. “These resolutions imply that both India and Pakistan have to pullout their respective troops simultaneously from the Kashmir,” the spokesman said.
Omar had said that Pakistan was supposed to “first withdraw from all of the state, including the part occupied by it”.
In his reply to Omar, the Hurriyat (G) spokesman said that when “India was totally refusing the UN resolutions why Pakistan should demilitarize its controlled area”.
“The main hurdle in the implementation of UN resolutions is the rigid and stubborn approach of India not of Pakistan. Accusing Pakistan for all this is in no way any reasonable and sensible assessment,” the spokesman said.
He said Pakistan is supporting and advocating the right to self-determination for the Kashmiri people from day one and this country has never objected the implementation of UN resolutions nor will they do it in future.
“We want to remind Omar Abdullah that his grandfather late Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah ran plebiscite movement in Kashmir for 22 years despite fully knowing the implementation process of the said resolutions. During this period he enjoyed full support of Pakistan because this country was never against the implementation of the resolutions. So this issue has never been controversial on which Omar Abdullah tweeted today,” he said.
The spokesman said the real problem of former chief minister is that “his family had sold out the countless and precious sacrifices of Kashmiri nation in lieu of power”.
“And to justify and hide that episode of the history, he (Omar) feels that blaming and accusing Pakistan for all that is necessity of the time,” the spokesman said.
