Division in Hurriyat Conference unfortunate: Jamaat-e-Islami

KL Report


Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday said that the division in Hurriyat Conference is unfortunate and damaging for the Kashmir movement.

Talking to KNS, Mohammad Abdullah Wani said that Jamaat had tried its best to reunite the two factions of Hurriyat Conference in past but its efforts yielded no results.

While reacting to Geelani’s allegations that BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendera Modi’s emissaries has met some separatist leaders in Kashmir and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s reaction in his today’s press conference, Wani said that the differences between the different factions of Hurriyat Conference is harming the cause of Kashmir movement.

“This infighting is in no way benefiting the people of Kashmir. On the other hand the Government of India’s divide and rule policy is paying its dividends when we witness these kinds of differences,” Wani observed. The Jammat chief said that his party in past has met all the leaders including Geelnai, Mirwaiz, Shabir Shah, Yasin Malik, Nayeem Khan and others and appealed them to united in the interest of Kashmir movement but all its efforts have failed to deliver any results.

On Geelani’s allegations, the Jammat chief said that his party has not met any of the emissaries of Modi nor was there any need to meet them. “What could have BJP got out of meeting us, I fail to understand.”

Asked about the Modi’s policy on Kashmir, Wani said that both Congress and the BJP are the two faces of the same coin when it comes to interests of Muslims   in India. “In whose time was Babri Masjid demolished. In whose tenure Muzaffar Nagar riots took place? These area a few questions to understand the pseudo secularism credentials of Congress. Similarly, BJP is openly fascist and communal in its politics.”

On Modi’s personal political character, Wani observed that he can change his rigid attitude once in power. “I think the country’s responsibility can fine tune him and change his rigid attitude towards Muslims. But equally I may be wrong in my perception. Everything will be clear once the election results are made public,” Wani said.
