#Day59: Behaviour of Hurriyat with APD Members Neither ‘Kashmiriyat’ nor ‘Insaaniyat’, says Rajnath




Home Minister of Rajnath Singh on Monday said that he was confident that Kashmir situation will improve.

He was talking to reporters before flying to winter capital of J&K during his two-day visit to state.

He is leading a 29-member All Party Delegation of Indian Parliamentarians to Kashmir where they are meeting “cross section of people”.

“I am confident situation in Jammu and Kashmir will improve,” said Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Replying to questions about resistance leaders shutting doors on members of APD, Singh replied, “the behaviour of Hurriyat leaders with delegation members neither ‘Kashmiriyat’ nor ‘insaniyat’.”

Notably, six MPs, in their strict personal capacities, tried to meet resistance leaders.

Vocal Muslim MP Assadudin Owaisi went to Chasma Shahi where Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has been detained but Hurriyat Conference (m) categorically told him that resistance leaders have decoded to not talk under the ambit of Indian constitution.

Owaisi met Shabir Shah in same hut-turned-sub-jail where he offered Asr Namaz as well. But Shah too did not talk.

However, Rajnath Singh asserted that the delegations members had gone to meet Hurriyat members “in their individual capacity”. “Some members of delegation went to meet Hurriyat leaders. We neither approved nor disapproved,” he said.

D Raja and Sitaram Yechury met Yasin Malik in Humhama Police Station but JKLF chief refereed to “situation outside”. “What can we talk about in such a situation,” he told them before bidding them adieu.

At the last, Hurriyat patriarch Syed Ali Geelani, had ordered closure of single door of his residence-cum-office at Hyderpora when news spread that MPs were coming to meet him. D Raja, Sharad Yadav and Sitaram Yechury waited for ten minutes and had to leave as pro-freedom sloganeering intensified. Main gate of Geelani’s residence has been closed by police by stationing a wanton against it.

Ahead of APD visit, Geelani had suggested “all stake holders to stay away from meeting anyone” from the delegation.
