Hurriyat (g) leader Syed Ali Geelani has asked for a “national consensus” against Modi government’s plan to establish three separate cities within Kashmir for Kashmiri Pandits. Asserting that while nobody is opposed to the idea of return of Kashmiri Pandits but by creating the separate cities for them, “government is actually working on its dangerous plan to harm centuries old brotherhood, divide society and give freedom struggle a communal colour”.
Quoting Geelani, a spokesman of Hurriyat (g) said they will oppose it at every level and in every possible way. With the plans to settle the Pakistani refugees in J&K, Geelani said Modi is coming up with a dangerous policy of changing the demography of Kashmir. He wants converting Muslim majority into the minorities by working on RSS plans.
While terming the arrival of Al-Qaida in Kashmir as hypothesis, the pro-freedom leader said that there is no scope of al-Qaida and Taliban in J&K. “Ours is a local and indigenous struggle so, the government wants to kill our youth and defame our sacred struggle in the name of al-Qaida that is why they are creating the environment of al-Qaida in the Kashmir,” the statement said.
Address a party seminar, Geelani revealed that Omer Abdullah was recently called to New Delhi and he was told there to identify the 16,800 Kanals of land in Kashmir for establishing the three separate cities for Kashmiri Pandits.
These cities are to be established in the North, South and Central Kashmir and each of them require 5,600 Kanals of land. Around 75,000-1,00,000 people will be accommodated in the each city and these cities will be provided with every facility. He said that it is the grave issue for the every individual of the state. “We will try to create a national consensus against these policies and will start consultation with some pro-freedom and religious organization in near future,” he said.
