SRINAGAR: Civil Society group Kashmir Centre for Social and Developmental Studies on Friday appealed the members of the legislative assembly to resign.
In a statement issued here, the group said all the political parties of the state assembly should “resign en-mass from their assembly membership to show solidarity with the brutalised and terrorised people of Kashmir and also to pressurise the government of India for the permanent resolution of the political issue”.
“As long as you are within the system, you are implicit collaborators even if you may not be conscious of it,” it said.
“Today it has become clear that Delhi continues with the clichéd ossified and fossilized denial of the popular unprecedented mass movement and stresses on the military solution to the popular movement to wriggle out from the responsibility of resolving it politically.
“You must understand that Indian colonial forces are shooting people on your shoulders Indian state is using you as a facade behind which all nefarious designs and manipulations are woven and carried out under the garb of democratic facade that you readily provide to them,” KCSDS said, addressing pro-India politicians.
The KCSDS said that the legislators always “proved the biggest stumbling block in the resolution of the dispute whenever people rose against oppressive control”.
“When Sheikh Abdullah, the main anchor of questionable and conditional accession was dethroned on 9th August 1953 after having tried to remind Delhi of her promised withdrawal of forces from the state, it was G M Bakhshi who provided a prop and a pillow to the Indian state to stay on and carry out her democratic manipulations, political disempowerment, and complete subjugation of Kashmiris.
“The pro India political parties in the state assembly helped in eroding even the internal sovereignty, dodging the political issue and in carrying out the complete penetration in all the institutions by the Indian state during the past 26 years as an inhuman arrogant fascist response to the intensified people’s freedom movement,” it said.
