Srinagar: Chairman All Parties Huriyat Conference, Syed Ali Geelani while reacting to the statement of the union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, said that India was not sincere about finding a peaceful and lasting solution to the Kashmir issue.
He said that the Indian government has yet to accept that Kashmir was “a disputed territory and not a law and order problem.
Geelani while reacting to the statement wherein home minister has said, “They are ready to talk to everyone in Kashmir “, said that Kashmir issue is simply an issue for right to self-determination and the issue lists at top in all other recognized human values.
“Sincere steps are needed to resolve issue; however, the egoistic and stubborn approach of Indian authorities are creating impediments, said Syed Ali Geelani and suggested that It is better for Indian authorities to shun its stubborn approach and resolve this long pending issue”, he said.
Geelani said that there is nothing new, while referring to the statement of Rajnath Singh and said it is simply rhetoric and formal parroting about Kashmir problem.
Commenting over the assertions of Rajnath Singh wherein he claimed that during his visit to valley, he attempted to try out a solution to Kashmir issue, Syed Ali Geelani said that it is ridiculous and illustrates their arrogance. He will never divulge reality and it is their deceit to mislead his nation, said Syed Ali Geelani.
“During people’s uprising in 2016, Rajnath Singh though visited valley, however he preferred to maintain silence and didn’t dare to reveal truth about Kashmir issue”, said Syed Ali Geelani.
“It is quite strange that despite being a mature politician and fully aware about this fact that issue can’t be resolved by force”, said Syed Ali Geelani adding that instead of addressing the core issue he made frequent announcement for reinforcement of forces personnel and more consignment of bullets and pellets were send to state.
While referring to the parliamentary delegation, Syed Ali Geelani said that before they could take any move, Rajnath Singh directed them to follow Indian constitution. They didn’t enjoy any mandate, nor they disclosed their agenda, said Geelani. While referring to statement of Rajnath Singh, Syed Ali Geelani said that Home Minister and other needlessly & constantly give hype to parliamentary delegation and while as those members neither enjoyed any mandate nor made their agenda public.
“What was the fun to engage in takes with parliamentary delegation”, asked Syed Ali Geelani. He said that even a person with average perception can’t deny this fact that even complex situation and issues are resolved through parleys.
He said that they are not sincere, referring to Indian authorities, however following Chankyan dogma, said Geelani and are desperate to mislead international community.
“It is half-truth”, said Geelani and criticising the statement of Rajnath Singh wherein he has said that India is desirous to resolve the issue and added that only people with conscience look serious about the resolution of Kashmir issue. Let India take initiative and honour opinion of its people as they are craving for its honourable solution and acknowledge all its pledges with regards to resolution of Kashmir issue, said Syed Ali Geelani. “A new dawn of prosperity, peace and stability will commence, soon as this pending issue is resolved”, said Geelani.
