Srinagar: Refuting and ridiculing the “obscure” and “contradictory” statement of the chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti, joint resistance leadership comprised of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik Tueday said that the people of Kashmir out rightly reject these “brazen lies and senseless arguments” to justify her “inhuman role” against the people of Kashmir during the current uprising and to please her “masters” in New Delhi for staying in power.
The leaders in a joint statement said that Mehbooba’s words and deeds are in keeping with the legacy of her predecessors who “played a deceitful and manipulative politics, creating fissures and confusing people thereby projecting and diluted and mudded view of Kashmir dispute to serve his purpose of remaining intimate to power corridors of Delhi”.
“Holding the reigns of India as its home minister, it was none other than the senior Mufti who was instrumental in the bloodbath of several massacres, perpetrated through his point man, notoriously known, Jag Mohan,” the statement said.
The statement added, “most barbaric amongst them where massacres in Gaw Kadal, Alamgiri Bazaar, Handwara, Zakura crossing, Hawal and others.”
“It was during his tenure as draconian Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA) was invoked in Jammu and Kashmir in September 1990, repercussions and thorns of which our generations are yet get ride off even after decades,” they said.
As Chief Minister, the leaders said, “Mufti parroted of a ‘healing touch’ but ruthless killings custodial disappearances countless graveyards and unparalleled human rights violations continued unabated throughout his tenure.”
Joint leadership said that efforts to thrust sainik colonies, discriminating industrial policies, state subject rights to west Pakistan refugee’s townships in the name of Kashmiri pandits with the aim of settling non-state subject’s extension of SARFESI act to J&K and other such policies are not figments of people’s imagination that they decided to rise against and get killed and pelleted but clearly articulated plans of RSS led BJP to which they have always openly committed.
“Their aim is to change the demography of the state through for its complete integration in the Indian domain,” they said.
Resistance leadership said the opportunity provided by PDP to BJP by their alliance which in fact is a “servile allegiance” to BJP for petty benefits of staying in the chair is part of the treacherous legacy since 1947 of a group of shameless and selfish people who have repeatedly bargained our blood and honour for their lust of power.
Resistance leadership said that since 1990 over one lakh Kashmiris have been killed by the forces and then in a show of ‘concern’ cosmetic measures of setting up inquiry commissions are announced with no results.
