Srinagar: The Hurriyat (M) on Saturday condemned the Indian military aggression on Line of Control, terming it as a ploy to divert international attention from atrocities perpetrated by the Indian state against the people of Kashmir.
The Hurriyat (M) spokesman stated that the unprovoked firing on the LOC has only worsened the situation in Kashmir. “There seems to be a sustained campaign both on part of Indian armed forces and Indian media to divert the narrative by creating war frenzy on the LOC,” the spokesman said.
The spokesman said that it is unfortunate that such diversionary tactics are being used just to divert the focus from the current Kashmir uprising. “Instead of blowing the war bugle, GOI and the Indian media should introspect and discuss as to why the situation in Kashmir has turned so bloody and look at ways of resolving the problem rather than turning a blind eye towards the real issue,” the spokesman said.
He reiterated that the Hurriyat (M) strongly states Kashmir to be an internationally recognised dispute which needs a serious dialogue among the three stakeholders to find a solution in accordance with the wishes and political aspirations of the people.
The spokesman also expressed grief over the death of yet another Kashmiri youth, Muzaffar Ahmad of Chek Kawoosa, Narbal, who succumbed to his injuries in indiscriminate pellet firing by government forces before Eid-ul-Adha. The Hurriyat (M) extended its sympathies and solidarity with the family of the martyred youth.
Terming the damaging of fruit and paddy crops of farmers as vengefulness towards the people, the spokesman said such anti-human tactics put even the worst dictators to shame.
