Srinagar: Terming Indian army Chief’slatest statement as self-contradictory and most illogical, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik said “that he needs to revisit basic historical facts before issuing such threats to a nation that has resolved to achieve freedom”.
“Sooner or later India has to free Kashmir from its illegal occupation as it is the truth that triumphs at the end not the military might. If assertions of Indian army chief regarding Azadi contained any ingredient of reality, more than half of the world including India would have been still reeling under foreign occupations today,” incarcerated JKLF chairman said in a statement.
“General Rawat wants Kashmiris to surrender before Indian might without even realizing that many generals before him failed to achieve this wishful goal despite using all their military might and deceitful political and diplomatic games,” Malik said.
JKLF chairman said that “our reply to General Rawat is same that was given by Ghandhi to a British envoy who had posed same type of question to him that how can poor Indian fight British military might and survive as an independent state without British help. Ghandi had replied that he would prefer a non-competent poor independent country over a competent and wealthy illegal occupation and slavery.”
Malik said that “sooner or later India has to free Jammu Kashmir from its illegal occupation as it is the truth that prevails at the end not the military might which he is boasting about”.
He said that in war between the powerful and powerless, it is not the mighty that wins but the truth those triumphs at the end.
“Bipin Rawat is threatening Kashmiris of much more force, but he needs to know that this is actually unmasking his countries so-called biggest democracy claims,” he said.
JKLF chairman said Ghandhi succeeded in his non-violent struggle because British Empire provided him.“A freedom fighter learns the hard way that it is the oppressor who defines the nature of the struggle, and the oppressed is often left no recourse but to use methods that mirror those of the oppressor. At a point, one can only fight fire with fire,” Malik said.
