Weren’t officially invited, says Hurriyat while terming Rajnath’s presser full of ‘lies, deceit, contradictions’

Srinagar: All Parties Hurriyat Conference on Monday said the Indian home minister Rajnath Singh’s press conference was “as always full of lies, deceit, denial, and contradictions” while claiming that they were not “officially” invited for talks by the All Party delegation.

In a statement issued to GNS, Hurriyat said: “They (all party delegation) never officially invited us but only blame us of rejecting it. This is not only shameful but speaks volumes about their truthfulness, sincerity, and clarity. They tried to play a game of win only for them as they just wanted to discredit us whether we would have accepted their offer of dialogue (which didn’t come) or ignored them.”

The conglomerate said that India is scared of any meaningful dialogue with Hurriyat and Pakistan as “they have occupied this land illegally and forcefully by their military might”. “We don’t need lectures and sermons on democracy and humanity from those killers whose hands are drenched in the blood of our innocent people,” the statement said, adding, “The visiting delegation should have gone around the length and breadth of Jammu and Kashmir to personally witness the gifts of Indian democracy through their killer forces.”

Hurriyat said the sole intention of the delegation was to act as firefighting tool just to derail and suppress the current movement “through these age-old tactics which they have been doing whenever Kashmiris stood up for their basic rights”.

“Despite ruthless force and atrocities, India could neither suppress the Azadi sentiments of Kashmiris for 70 long years nor will it be able to do so in future. New Delhi must rise to the occasion and give a passionate hearing to the genuine and basic demands of the people of Jammu Kashmir or continue with its military aggression which would only claim human lives not only in Kashmir, India, and Pakistan but in the whole region as well,” the Hurriyat said in a statement.
