SRINAGAR: Reacting against the statement of Venkaiah Naidu wherein he said that ‘Azadi’ slogans will invite action under sedition law, Huriyat Conference (G) on Saturday said this illustrates New Delhi’s “frustration”.
A spokesman of the conglomerate in a statement issued here said, “India is emerging as a fascist and imperialist state and their claims of being a largest democracy in world stand exposed.”
“Indian rulers don’t believe in democratic setup, instead are hell-bent on muzzling the right to expression by enacting black laws and through their state power. This type of lawlessness is never justified in a civilised society,” he said.
He said more and more people are supporting our movement and the intellectual class in India now understands the aspirations of the people of J&K. “The new tendency in reputed educational institutions like Ramjas College and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) is encouraging as they are displaying their resentment against Delhi for its unrealistic Kashmir policy,” he said.
Referring to “biased” media of Indian, the spokesman said though they leave no stone unturned to mislead their people but despite all this, realities about the historical background of Kashmir issue comes to fore and speaks loud.
He appreciated the people of India for their sympathetic approach and support saying “we are thankful for those who show their concern and raise voice in our favour”.
Hailing the student community for their “truthful approach”, the Hurriyat (G) spokesman said they are following their rightful thinking and “deny falling in the trap of the rhetoric of their leaders about the political scenario of Jammu & Kashmir”.
“It is better for Indian politicians to treat the (Kashmir) issue on humanitarian basis. We have no animosity with the people of India but are pursuing our fundamental right,” the spokesman added.
