Srinagar: Chairman Hurriyat (M) Mirwaiz Umer Farooq echoed Geelani’s views on the industrial policy, Sainik Colony and separate townships for Pandits.
“India is trying to make Kashmiris homeless in their own nation the way Palestinians were made homeless. We will not allow government to establish separate townships for Pandits or residential clusters for soldiers.The separate townships will create a wall of hatred between Muslims and Pandits. We won’t let it happen,” Mirwaiz said.
“By proposing these ideas of separate townships the government is trying to label Kashmiri Muslims as fundamentalists and terrorists. The aim is to divide us on religious lines. It won’t happen,” he said.
