Accept ground realities about Kashmir: Geelani to Delhi

Srinagar: Suggesting Indian rulers to accept the ground realities and stop the “age-old deceitful rhetoric” about Kashmir, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday said that Kashmir is a globally accepted dispute with both countries, India and Pakistan, being signatory.

He said “unrealistic and undemocratic” media voicing by Indian rulers can in no way change the dynamics of the Kashmir issue.

In a statement issued to GNS, Geelani said: “These baseless thunders may lure the majority vote bank and Saffron brigade may once again succeed to befool its people, but an issue like Kashmir need a pragmatic and statesmanlike dealing which at least in Delhi rulers is hard to find.”

He said that people claiming a vast majority and being a major political party should at least issue the statements close to the historical facts and figures, which can never get diluted or changed by the repeated and “arrogant” narratives like “Atoot Ang”.

Hurriyat (G) chairman said that almost all the rulers in Delhi have adopted a same “untrue and biased lollypop” for their collective conscience, but can least have any effect on the ground situation.

Same home minister in 2016 said that Kashmir issue will be resolved within a week’s time, hundreds of weeks have passed since then same person now is forced to sing the song of “Atoot Ang” again, just to grab the power, he said.

“Despite millions of armed forces, supported and helped by a vast and notorious investigative sniffing, Kashmir is still boiling and the heat is felt not only in Kashmir, but the whole of India. Daily deaths and destruction has led to the nuclear confrontation in waiting,” he said.

Hurriyat (G) chairman said that had military might cowed down any nation to submission then India would have still been under British rule, America would not have left Vietnam, Russia would not have forced to leave Afghanistan after being shattered into pieces itself and nowadays the superpower America would not have bowed to Taliban to rescue them in Afghanistan.

He said that if trouble is only in 3 districts then it is a golden opportunity for New Delhi to ask the people to decide their fate.

The rulers in Delhi should not shy away from the facts and realities and if they do so, they are themselves to blame of its consequences, Geelani said. (GNS)
