Read the Writing On Wall; Geelani Asks PM

KL Report


“Read the writing on wall”, this is what Chairman Hurriyat ( G) Syed Ali Geelani suggested to the Prime Minister of India Dr Manmohan Singh, who is on two day visit to the State.

While thanking people for observing  complete shutdown,  Geelani  has asked Dr Singh to shun   traditional stubborn approach and  fulfill  commitment  with  respect to the resolution of Kashmir issue.

In his direct address to Prime Minister, Geelani said that “during last 65 years you  have achieved a  lot of experience and with your all military might tried to change  the motives and aspirations , and after announcing  the  packages and privileges, you  failed to change the hard realities,” and added “instead of all your attempts,  situation  remained unchanged  and uncertainty and instability in Kashmir  still prevails”.

Geelani said that people of Jammu and Kashmir are committed with the movement and won’t give up their struggle despite all these oppressive measures.

“Announcement of packages or inauguration of railway lines and power projects   can not heal the wounds and nor hurt sentiments of people of Kashmir can be satisfied. Kashmir is neither an economic problem  nor  an issue related to  good or bad management,” he said and added  that Kashmir issue is a historical reality and  VIP visits or construction activities  can not  resolved it.

Geelani asks Dr Singh that if he desires that his visit should  deliver some good then he should accept the reality and  come with explanation and disclose those involved in gang rape in Kunan Poshapora ,the persons responsible for forced disappearance of ten thousand youth.

“He should make an announcement for independent inquiry in these incidents and  announce that  without any fear or favour  perpetrators of these incidents would be punished under the law, if he wishes to make his visit  to be of historical importance ,” said Geelani adding that Dr Singh  should  make an announcement for revocation of draconian laws  and release all prisoners from jails .

While declaring the proposed closed door meeting with Saif u Din Soz and Omar Abdullah  as futile, Geelani said, “ Prime Minister cannot feel the inner aspirations of suppressed Kashmir’s during these meetings nor he would know the  hard reality, and instead  he should visit Kunan Posha Pora  village, visit the unmarked graveyards, listen to woeful tale of innocent son of Shaheed Mohamad Afzal Guroo and interact those parents ,whose wards were brutally killed  in year 2008 and 2010 in indiscriminate fringe by Indian forces.”

Geelani rejected the notion of having something personal with the visiting leaders and said that  “we as Kashmiri have nothing personal against you  and Mrs. Sonia Gandhi  and added however the people of Jammu and Kashmir do protest because  both of you figure among the prominent personalities of that country  that with its military might and repressive measures have occupied the state, lakhs of Kashmiris killed  by its army and has trampled on our honor and dignity.”

“The people of Kashmir are not unrealistic in their approach nor they are fanatic, instead our people are a peace-loving nation and we want peaceful solution of Kashmir issue .This war has been imposed on us by India,” he added.

Geelani said that in principle we are not against negotiations, however, India in order to delay the issue and for just fun is trying to mislead the international community.

“Till now the issue was discussed 150 times but  no result were yielded because of the stubbornness of approach of India,” he added.
