J&K High Court Kashmir Bar Association Tuesday strongly condemned the statement made by CM Ms Mehbooba Mufti, in Delhi, wherein she has termed the events unfolding since 2008 as “halla gulla”.
Bar termed “the same to be an insult to the people of Kashmir, who are engaged in a legitimate struggle of seeking the Right of Self Determination”, which has been promised and guaranteed to them by Security Council and UN Commission for India and Pakistan Resolutions dated 21.04.1948, 13.08.1948 and 05.01.1949 and also by Indian Leaders, in their statements made at International For a, as well as inside and outside the parliament, a statement issued by Kashmir Bar said on Tuesday.
“The Bar Association wants to make it clear to Mehbooba Mufti that no one in the world, will sacrifice his life, for a ‘halla gulla’ and the people of Kashmir are no insane, who will stand against the Indian brutalities, for a fun. The people of Kashmir, both men, women and children of all ages, have, however, sacrificed their lives and are ready to do the same in future, for a genuine cause of liberating Kashmir from Indian occupation, so that they can also live in peace and there is no threat to their life and property from Indian Occupational Forces,” the statement said.
The statement said that Bar Association appreciated the “solidarity” shown by several organizations of Bengaluru, who have asked the Government of India to “honour the UN Resolutions and conduct a plebiscite in Kashmir and stop the human rights violations in the State”.
The statement said that the Bar “supports the stand of Hurriyat Conference (g) Chairperson, Syed Ali Geelani, who has stated that the people of Kashmir should unanimously tell India that they are not after any kind of employment or a developmental package and that they only want that Indian occupational forces should vacate Kashmir and allow the people to exercise their Right of Self Determination to choose about their future”.
The Bar Association which has already kept a team of three lawyers, available in lower court Srinagar, for providing free legal aid to the people, asked lawyers of Tangmarg and other places, not to charge any amount from any person for obtaining bail from the courts, but follow the pattern which has been adopted by J&K High Court Bar Association, Srinagar, by appointing a team of lawyers, for providing free legal aid to the people at this crucial juncture.
The Bar Association expressed its condolence to the members of the Bar Association Baluchistan and other civilians, who were killed by the forces inimical to Pakistan and requested the people of Pakistan to unite and foil all the attempts of these forces in disestablishing Pakistan by their nefarious designs, the statement added.
