Say Sainik Colony, state subject rights to West Pak Refugees, extension of SARFESI law to J&K not ‘figments of people’s imagination’
Srinagar: The people of Kashmir out rightly reject “brazen lies and senseless arguments” which she has been making to “justify her inhuman role against the people” during the 2016 uprising to “please her masters” in New Delhi for power, the Joint Resistance Leadership said in a strongly-worded statement on Tuesday.
In a statement, the Leadership comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik said, “Mehbooba’s words and deeds are in keeping with the legacy of her predecessors who played deceitful and manipulative politics, creating fissures and confusing people thereby projecting a diluted and muddied view of Kashmir dispute to serve their purpose of remaining intimate to power corridors of Delhi.”
“Holding the reins 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 (sic),” the statement said.
The statement added, “most barbaric amongst them where massacres in Gaw Kadal, Alamgiri Bazaar, Handwara, Zakura crossing, Hawal and others.”
On Monday, Mehbooba Mufti had, without naming them, blamed the resistance leadership for last year’s uprising.
“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 rid of even after decades,” they said.
“As chief minister (late) Mufti parroted ‘healing touch’ but ruthless killings custodial disappearances, countless graveyards and unparalleled human rights violations continued unabated throughout his tenure,” the leaders said.
Joint leadership said that efforts to thrust Sainik colonies, discriminating industrial policies, state subject rights to West Pakistan refugees and townships for Kashmiri Pandits with the aim of settling non-state subjects, 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 is “a servile allegiance to BJP for petty benefits of staying in the chair and it 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 1 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.”
