‘Omar Abdullah’s statement to Pak daily based on misinformation’
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday said that people of the state will continue their struggle for freedom even if India and Pakistan change their stands on Kashmir.
A statement issued to GNS by the spokesman of the pro-freedom amalgam termed the recent interview of chief minister Omar Abdullah to a Pakistan-based newspaper Daily Times as “unrealistic and an opinion based on misinformation.”
According to the statement, Omar Abdullah had said that
“implementation of UN resolutions is demanded only in Indian Occupied Kashmir.”
“Whenever implementation of UN resolutions is talked about, it is meant for whole of Kashmir including Pakistan Occupied Kashmir,” the spokesman said.
“India has occupied Kashmir by Military might and even if there were no UN resolutions or the statements made by Jawaharlal Nehru, people of the region would still fight for freedom,” he said.
The statement also castigated Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah for “playing with the Kashmir issue by signing Indra-Abdullah accord.”
“But nothing stopped the people of Kashmir in their demand of freedom since then,” he said, adding “Kashmiris will continue to fight for freedom even if India and Pakistan show no interest in resolving this issue.”
“If India and Pakistan change their stand on Kashmir, still people of Kashmir will fight for freedom till the goal is achieved,” the statement said.
“If the implementation of 16 year old agreement between China and Hong Kong on Taiwan is possible today, how implementation of United Nations resolutions on Kashmir issue can be termed as impossible,” the statement said.
Meanwhile, the amalgam chairman, Syed Ali Geelani condemned the “detention of 16-year-old Nadeem Ahmad Dar of Drangbal Baramulla as an “act of state terrorism.”
“Geelani sahib accused Omar Abdullah of breaking all the previous records of illegally detain Kashmiri Youth under Public Safety Act,” the statement added.
He also appealed Amnesty International and other Human Rights Organizations to take note of Nadeem Ahmad Dar’s detention under PSA and help seek his release. (GNS)
