Act as Key Players, not Consultants: Bakhshi to Pro-Freedom Camp



Asking Kashmir’s pro-freedom camp to remain cautious over the latest developments taking place at the International level, Islamic Students League patron Shakeel Ahmad Bakhshi Saturday said that on Saturday that “any solution thrusted by the Islamabad, New Delhi or Washington will be unacceptable to the people in Kashmir”.

Bakhshi while commenting over the recent handout over Kashmir issued by UN Secretary General and America’s state department in a backdrop of the proposed NSA level talks between India and Pakistan, said, “as the world community’s support to Kashmir’s just struggle is worth to hail but the leadership here must remain cautious.” “It has to be seen whether such a sudden interest is aimed for some sell out instead of the resolution of Kashmir dispute,” Bakhshi said.

He added that the external forces must remember that the people of “Kashmir are the prime stakeholders of the dispute while other nations have a mere secondary role”. “To term this dispute as a bilateral one is un utter disgrace to the immense sacrifices rendered by the people of Kashmir and tantamount to eroding the historic significance of this dispute. The present resistance movement in Kashmir nourished by people’s blood is not for the mere ‘consultative’ role but for playing a key role,” Bakhshi said.

The ISL patron remarked, “no solution thrusted by Islamabad, Washington and New Delhi will be acceptable to the people of Kashmir and people here have in them the courage to dismiss any such move with the fearless action.”

He said the states have their own priority to talk terror while the people here strive to entry the tyranny imposed on them since decades. “To exhibit euphoria over inclusion of K word and dismay over skipping it by India and Pakistan during the formal meetings is against the very principals of the resistance movement of Kashmir,” Bakhshi said, adding, “the agenda and time frame for Kashmir’s complete freedom and withdrawal is in normality inevitable.”

Bakhshi reminded the pro-freedom leadership that their mandate isn’t for being the mere helpers to smoothen the Indo-Pak relations but to “represent the aspirations of their own nation with utmost sincerity”.  “The five points resolved by both the countries at UFA aren’t Kashmir centric at all but to facilitate the measures against terrorism, DGMOs decisions, release of the fishermen, promote pilgrimage tourism and collaboration in trail related Mumbai attacks,” Bakhshi said.

Meanwhile, senior Hurriyat (m) leader and chairperson of People Conference of his group, Bilal Gani Lone, was Saturday detained by police at Delhi airport as he landed there with regards to meeting with Pakistan National Security Advisor Sartaj Aziz.

Sources said that Lone was detained by Delhi police at 6:45 pm today soon after he landed at Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi.

Bilal has gone to Delhi to meet Pakistan NSA Sartaj Aziz on the invitation of Pakistan High Commissioner.

Pertinently, Hurriyat (m) chairperson Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is visiting Delhi tomorrow in connection with meeting Aziz. Similarly, Hurriyat (g) chairperson Syed Ali Shah Geelani is visiting Delhi on Monday morning for the same purpose.
