Meet with Sri Sri: ‘Muzaffar Wani will be Muzaffar Wani, not a traitor’

Meet with Sri Sri: ‘Muzaffar Wani will be Muzaffar Wani, not a traitor’

Srinagar: Muzaffar Wani, father of Hizb commander Burhan Wani whose killing last month triggered yet another anti-India uprising, addressed reporters at his home in Tral on Sunday. The press meet was called a day after Indian spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar posted a picture that showed him with Muzaffar Wani at his Bangalore ashram. The picture triggered speculations about the meeting being part of some TrackII initiative.
Following is what Wani told reporters:
After Burhan saeb was martyred, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar called me and offered condolences. He said he wanted to meet me. I told him that I have to come there (Bangalore) for treatment and I will try to meet him there. I felt it was safe to stay at Sri Sri’s Ashram as I had gone for treatment (for diabetes) at the Sri Sri Ayurvedic Research Centre. I stayed there for two days and explained to Ravi Shankar the reality of Kashmir.Since there is a communication blockade in the valley and Indian media is also not playing its role positively as far as Kashmir issue is concerned so my intention was clear that besides seeking treatment I will be able to convey to him what was actually happening in Kashmir.
I told him that Kashmiris only want Azadi from India and India should keep the promise that Jawahar Lal Nehru made to them. He showed me videos of Syria war. I told him much worse is being done in Kashmir. I told him that unfortunately I am not carrying my mobile phone along with me as i could have shown you what is being done to the people of Kashmir.
In reply to his question to whom should India talk to in Kashmir, I clearly told him that I am a common man and a teacher and India should unconditionally talk to the leaders representing Kashmiris like Geelani sahab, Yasin Malik sahab, Mirwaiz sahab and Shabir Shah sahab.
(To a reporter’s question whether Ravi Shankar’s call was part of the dialogue process India wanted to initiate with Kashmiris) I cannot say. That might also be the case. I found Ravi Shankar a man with positive thinking and approach. My meeting with him will bear fruit. Had ministers in the government of India been like him, Kashmir issue would have been resolved long back.
(Asked what message he wanted to convey to Kashmiris after his meeting with Ravi Shankar). My people should not get worried. Muzaffar Wani will always be Mazaffar Wani and will never be a traitor. Burhan’s blood will bear fruit.

    Do we have to ask Muzaffar wani sahib more proof of his character? Just that we Kashmiris have been tricked before does not mean we should lose sight of his supreme sacrifices. What’s really left in his life now after giving two of his sons to our cause? May Allah keep him at peace with his life and help him to bear this mammoth loss. We won’t forget you Muzaffar sahib…

    Shri Shri’s effort is though praiseworthy, it needs to be backed by him to bring home the sense of sanity with the head of the ruling class in Delhi. Kashmiris have a genuine grievance and they have not been heard nor have they been treated well that would make them proud of being part of India. Shri Shri must exercise his goodwill with the Prime Minister of India, who is alone in position to change of the course of action in dealing with the Kashmir situation to normalcy. Muzaffar wani is a father who has lost both his son the headstrong Army did the job that was better not done.

    No one can ever call Muzaffar Wani a traitor. He obviously was out on some important mission and would not have gone there without a nod from Geelani Sahab.
