SRINAGAR: Jammu Kashmir National Front chairman Nayeem Ahmad Khan on Sunday said that if Indian army had not landed in Kashmir 60 year ago there would have been “no tension on the borders and no bloody lines would have divided peaceful Kashmiris”.
“The landing of Indian army in Jammu and Kashmir created such an uncertainty in the whole south Asian region which has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives so far and the people are living apprehensive lives not only in the disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir but in the whole region,” Khan alleged, in a statement.
“India which claims to be the largest democracy in the world is identified as an occupier in Jammu Kashmir and it’s so called democratic face has visible stains of blood of Kashmiris,” he said.
He said that if India is sincere to live peacefully with its neighbours then it has to fulfil its promises made with the people of Jammu and Kashmir by its leaders on the local and international levels.
“It is unfortunate that India is using oppressive measures against Kashmiris and for this purpose it is using its local collaborators whose activities are aimed at fulfilling the Indian goals,” Khan said adding “The latest shameful act of these collaborators is the use of forces against peaceful Kashmiris and arrest spree which they have started in nook and corner of the valley.”
Nayeem Khan alleged that India is busy using oppressive measures in Jammu Kashmir for decades now that is why the people of the state observe October 27, as a black day, “because this day is the only reason of their worries and troubles”.
