Accept ground realities, stop age –old-deceitful rhetoric about Kashmir: Geelani to India
Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani
Srinagar, Apr 10: Suggesting rulers to accept the ground realities and stop the age old deceitful rhetoric about Kashmir, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani Wednesday said that Kashmir is a globally accepted dispute with both countries, India and Pakistan, being signatory and ‘unrealistic and undemocratic’ media voicing by rulers can in no way change the dynamics of this issue.
In a statement issued, he said that “these baseless thunders may lure the majority vote bank and Saffron brigade may once again succeed to befool its people, but issue like Kashmir need a pragmatic and statesman like dealing which at least in Delhi rulers is hard to find.”
Geelani said that people claiming a vast majority and being a major political party should at least issue the statements close to the historical facts and figures, which can never get diluted or changed by the repeated and arrogant narratives like “Atoot Ang”.
He said that “almost all the rulers in Delhi have adopted a same untrue and biased lollypop for their collective conscience, but can least have any effect on the ground situation. Same home minister in 2016 said that Kashmir issue will be resolved with a week’s time, hundreds of weeks have passed since then same person now is forced to sing the song of ‘Atoot Ang’ again, just to grab the power.”
“Despite millions of armed forces, supported and helped by a vast and notorious investigative sniffing, Kashmir is still boiling and the heat is felt not only in Kashmir, but whole of India. Daily deaths and destruction has led to the nuclear confrontation in waiting and had power a solution to any problem than 71 years is more than enough to solve any issue, but present scenario, speaks volumes against it,” he said.
He said that had military might cowed down any nation to submission then India would have still been under British rule, America would not have left Vietnam, Russia would not have forced to leave Afghanistan after being shattered into pieces itself and nowadays American superpower would not have bowed to Taliban to rescue them in Afghanistan.
“If trouble is only in three districts then it is a golden opportunity for India to ask the people to decide their fate and they are sure to win and will get rid of the tag and blame of oppressor and aggressor which may pave for their way to new international and global heights,” he added.
Geelani said that rulers in Delhi should not shy away from the facts and realities, if they do so they are themselves to blame of its consequences.
