APHC says ‘Beigh trying to become more loyal than the king’

KL Report


Responding to the recent statement of senior PDP member and former minister, Muzaffar Hussein Beigh on the settlement of West Pakistan Refugees, APHC spokesman said such views should be seen in the context of giving impetus to the attempts of Government of India which it is making to change the demography of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

The spokesman said by making such statement, Beigh was trying to become more loyal than the king just for the lust of power. The spokesman said Beigh deliberately forgot that the non-state subjects could not be settled owing to the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. “Beigh’s statement had no political, legal or moral standing,” the spokesman said.

The spokesman said that though the settlement of refugees is a humanitarian issue but it cannot be done at the expense of the demographic integrity and the overall interests of the state.

The spokesman said if Beigh was too concerned about the status of these refugees, he should have asked GOI to settle them outside the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

“Hurriyat would fully resist any effort to succeed which is aimed to alter the demography and special status of J&K under the garb of rehabilitation of refugees,” the spokesman said.

The spokesman said it was important to read Beigh’s statement in the context of furthering the agenda of BJP and other extremist forces of India. “If such a plan, aimed to change special status of Kashmir by altering the demographics is executed, it would have  serious consequences on the future of the state,” the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, the Hurriyat spokesman has paid glorious tributes to Wamiq Farooq on his “fourth martyrdom anniversary”. He said that the killers of Wamiq were still at large and the government has done nothing to bring the perpetrators to justice.
