Srinagar: Huriyat Conference (g) on Saturday while reacting to the statement of union minister Venkaiah Naidu, wherein he has said that Azadi slogans will invite action under sedition law, said that it illustrates their frustration. “India is emerging as a fascist and imperialist state & their claims of being a largest democracy in world, stand exposed,” A statement issued by Hurriyat here read.
Commenting over the statement, it said that more and more people are supporting our movement & intellectual class in India do now understand the aspirations of people of J&K. “New tendency in reputed educational institutions like Ramjas College, Jawahir Lal Nehru University & other educational institutions is encouraging as they are displaying their resentment against Delhi for their unrealistic Kashmir policy.”
While referring to Indian print & electronic media, the statement said said though they leave no stone unturned to mislead their people but despite all this, realities about the historical background of Kashmir issue comes to fore and speaks loud.
Commenting over the statement of Venkaiah Naidu, wherein he has said that Azadi slogans will invite action under sedition law, the statement said that it depicts their frustration and they are extremely disturbed with the new tendency and development. The increasing support of Kashmir cause amongst Indians is unexpected for ruling class.
The statement expressed concern over the growing intolerance in India and said that despite their tall claims about being a largest democracy, is proving hoax. “Naidu’s statement indicates that they will never allow free thinking and will recommend curbs on freedom to speech. They do not believe in democratic setup, instead are hell-bent to muzzle right to expression by enacting black laws & through their state power.” This type of lawlessness is never justified in civilised societies.
The statement said that RSS, BJP and its subsidiary organisation can go to any extent to convert India into a “Hindu Rashtra’ ’and for this they will throttle every such voice which they believe may prove problematic for them.
The statement asked Naidoo that these repressive measures won’t make us to give up our aspirations nor these punitive measures will deliver any good in future.
