Some politicians who for the lust of power have been acting as the collaborators are today raising a hue and cry about resistance camps involvement in this matter and are saying that it is like defending Indian constitution. We want to tell those that nation of Jammu Kashmir from last seventy plus years has been witnessing death, destruction, and miseries and it is these people and their parties’ who are responsible for all what Kashmiris are going through.
