Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday said All Parties Hurriyat Conference is not in favour of any such temporary arrangements like potato and onion trade until final and permanent resolution of Kashmir dispute.
In a statement, Geelani criticised the Indian leadership for meting-out “inhuman approach and behavior” with the people of Kashmir. The veteran Hurriyat leader said: “GoI is suffering from arrogance of military might by frequently using all methods of oppression and repression”, and proposed New Delhi to shun “arrogance and desist comparing Jammu and Kashmir with any part of India which might have wider range of political consequences”.
Geelani lashed out at Modi for befooling voters in the name of Kashmir. “Modi is describing the situation in West Bengal more volatile than that of Jammu and Kashmir and adding salt to the wounds of the people of Kashmir.”
He asked the Indian Prime Minister why West Bengal is not declared a disturbed territory. “Why it is not handed over to military? Why POTA, AFSPA, PSA, ULA like draconian laws are not implemented there?” he said. Reiterating Kashmir as an international issue brought forth by India on the tables of UN, the pro-freedom leader asked New Delhi not to play politics on this sensitive issue for its “petty electoral gains”.
Geelani also condemned the proposed ban on the student community of Jammu and Kashmir to get admission in educational institutions of Pak administered Kashmir (PaK).
The Hurriyat leader demanded an early intervention by United Nation Organizations to help resolve the sensitive Kashmir issue in the larger interests of the peace and progress of the whole South Asia.
