Commenting on Gen. V.K. Singh’s statement chairman Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Mohammad Umar Farooq said that Gen Singh’s revelation has opened the can of worms and brought to fore the truth of Kashmir, the grim and chilling reality of how occupation and subjugation can be enforced under the facade of ‘Democratic Rule” to hoodwink ones own people and the international community.
“While In actual practice the state has been reeling under martial Law for decades, the blood of our young and old spilled on the streets, unaccounted for and without remorse,” he said
Mirwaiz said that General V. K. Singh’s statement that “paying ministers was nothing new in J&K”. It has been happening since 1947” has completely undermined the legitimacy of successive so called “representative Governments” in J&K since 1947.
“It is now clear that who so ever is installed by Delhi to rule the state right from Sheikh Abdullah to the present day, has to be hand in glove with the Army establishment, infact has to follow their diktat, and further their objective and agenda,” said Hurriyat (M) chairman.
“Those who make hue and cry about the revocation of AFSPA from J&K actually collaborate in the continuance of these laws in the state. Their ‘double speak’ is clearly exposed and their true colours seen,” he added.
