SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chairman on Saturday challenged chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and leader of opposition Omar Abdullah to face the pro-freedom leaders in a “private election” if they were sure that Kashmiris will choose India.
In a statement, Malik said that both these leaders along with other pro-India politicians glorify their connection with India. “These people claim that people have chosen India over freedom. Today, we challenge both of them (if they have guts) to face us in a private election in a constituency of their own if they want to determine what people of Kashmir desire for,” he added.
He said that people like Mufti and Omar come to power by “hoodwinking people”.
“They use slogans like autonomy, self rule, resolution of Jammu Kashmir, human rights violations during elections but later on play the role of stooges and agents of Indian state,” he alleged.
He said that he will respect these politicians if they seek votes for India in their elections campaigning.
“RSS is far better than these people as it has only one face. This party is anti-Muslim and anti-Kashmir.”
“If these people believe in what they say, they should go to the people with same slogans and ask for their votes in the name of India.”
