‘Int’l community’s silence on Kashmir pain giving’
SRINAGAR: Reacting against the statement of Jitendra Singh that Modi government has “clarity and conviction” in its approach towards issues of Jammu Kashmir, the Hurriyat Conference on Monday said “repressive and obstinate” means won’t help but will prove counterproductive.
A Hurriyat spokesperson in a statement said people are mature enough to understand “follies”. “(The) puppet regimes in past tried their best to erode freedom sentiments but failed. Even these repressive steps will prove a failure,” he said.
He said New Delhi and its “henchmen” in state resorted to character assassination of pro-freedom camp and gagging the genuine voices. “It will bring only shame for (them).”
The spokesperson said unless India fulfills the commitment made by its first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru and stop its “repressive” approach against people in state, the situation will not improve but aggravate with each passing day.
Blaming PDP-led regime for facilitating bloodshed in state, the spokesperson said those parroting about bringing peace and normalcy are responsible for current appalling situation.
“Since last year, hundreds of innocents were mercilessly killed by present regime and its forces,” he said. “The NIA arrests is a ploy to implicate (the resistance leadership) in fake and fabricated cases to defame them through its biased media.”
He said government of India has failed in Kashmir and is desperate to bring bad name to resistance movement by floating the “concocted” stories to portray the struggle as that of “money laundering and terror funding”.
The Hurriyat spokesperson criticised the international community for its silence saying “it is pain giving that they despite witnessing the heartless role of Indian authorities and NIA are watching as mute spectators”.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat in a statement strongly condemned the alleged NIA raids on residence of Advocate Devender Singh Behal and harassment of his family members during search operations.
