SRINAGAR: Mirwaiz Umar Farooq-led Hurriyat Conference on Saturday termed the assertions made by RSS chief Mohan Baghwat that people of Kashmir should be dealt with force as “they only understand the language of power” as a reflection of the fascist ideology of the right-wing organisation and their outlook on how to deal with the political will and aspirations of the people of Kashmir.
A spokesperson of the conglomerate in a statement said eulogising army for doing a “commendable job” of keeping the territory and people under forcible control and banking on military strength as a means of resolution of the world acknowledged dispute is highly condemnable.
He said Kashmir is the world’s most militarised zone where forces are laced with unbridled powers including black laws like AFSPA which have resulted in worst form of human rights violations and killing of civilians.
“Instead of looking at a political resolution to this purely political and human problem which is causing so much death and destruction here and hostility and uncertainty in the region, such people want the army to do this job for them through force and power,” he said.
The spokesperson said the RSS chief should apprise himself of the basic ground reality that Kashmir is a world recognised dispute and it has never been a part of Indian union. He said there are 18 resolutions pending about Jammu and Kashmir in the UN and the resolution of this vexed dispute lies in implementing these very resolutions.
“People like Baghwat should realise that no stone has been left unturned to push the people of Kashmir and the resistance leadership to wall by extreme use of force, yet all repressive measures have failed to cow down the people or break their resolve to achieve the realisation of their political will and aspirations “Meanwhile, the spokesperson paid rich tributes to three militants killed in Balhama encounter, stating that youth are sacrificing their lives for a “great and sacred cause”.
“It is the collective responsibility of people and leadership to strive for the cause,” he said.
