Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) said on Monday that the intention behind the attempt made by a few Indian parliamentarians to meet the incarcerated resistance leadership on Sunday was only a “game aimed at discrediting us”.
Hurriyat was reacting to home minister Rajnath Singh’s remarks that by closing doors on the parliamentarians, the resistance leadership had defied ‘insaniyat’ and ‘Kashmiriyat’.
Rajnath led the delegation of 26 Indian parliamentarians that visited Srinagar on Sunday and met pro-India politicians and some delegations.
“Rajnath’s press conference as always is full of lies, deceit, denial and contradictions. They never officially invited us and at the same time blame us for rejecting it. It is not only shameful but speaks volumes about their truthfulness, sincerity and clarity,” a statement issued by Hurriyat (G) said.
“They just wanted to discredit us whether we accepted their dialogue offere that never came or we ignored their casual personal gestures,” the statement added.
The resistance grouping said India is scared of any meaningful dialogue with Hurriyat and Pakistan, as they have “occupied this land illegally and forcefully by their military might using repeated lies and unabated surplus violence.”
“We don’t need lectures and sermons on democracy and humanity from those killers whose hands are drenched in the blood of our innocent people. The visiting delegation should have gone around the length and breadth of Jammu and Kashmir to witness themselves the gifts” of Indian democracy by their killer forces for the last so many decades,” the statement said.
The sole intention of the delegation was firefighting, only to derail the current movement through these age-old tactics, as they have been doing whenever Kashmiries stood up for their basic rights, the statement added.
“Despite ruthless force and unparalled atrocities you couldn’t weaken the Azadi sentiment of Kashmiris for 70 long years and you won’t be able to do so in future as well. Hurriyat advises them to rise to the occasion and give a passionate hearing to the genuine grievances and basic demands of populace or continue with your military aggression, leading to heavy human price not only in Kashmir, India, Pakistan but the whole region as well,” the statement said.
