1975 accord was historic betrayal: Gilani

Srinagar, November 22, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has said that 1975 Indira-Abdullah accord is a historical betrayal of the then Kashmiri leadership with the people and the sacred blood of martyrs of Kashmir. Syed Ali Gilani reacting to puppet Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’ s statement in which he termed 1975 Indira-Abdullah accord as ‘historic’ in a statement in Srinagar said, “The surrender of 1975 was a big blow to the democratic and human values due to which lakhs of Kashmiri families lost their loved ones and thousands of our daughters and sisters lost their dignity.”

Kashmiri people, he added, are still bearing the punishment of the mistakes of the greedy leadership of that time and people of that tribe are still harping benefits by advocating India’s military presence in Kashmir and praising the oppressors. “As a result of Indira-Abdullah accord, Indian democracy killed tens of thousands of unarmed people in Kashmir and thousands of our daughters and sisters have been raped so far,” he added.

He said 1975 accord revived the democratic process in such a way that entire Kashmir has become a major prison and a mega graveyard and the people of this region are barred to express themselves.“The calculations and analysis of short-sighted, improvident and lustful Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and other people of his tribe lose its credibility when compared with the historical realities,” Gilani said.

He said conversion of Muslim Conference into National Conference was an act of treason with blood of martyrs of 13th July 1931. “Its purpose was to forge alliance with the Indian National Congress to attain power.” Gilani said in 40 years rule of Congress about 40 thousand anti-Muslim riots took place in India in which thousands of Muslims were killed.

“It is political compulsion of Mufti Sayeed to sometimes praise late Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah, his agreements and accords and Hindu extremist parties like BJP and RSS,” he said. Syed Ali Gilani said 1975 Indira-Abdullah accord pushed people of the territory to live a more miserable life. “Indo-Pak wars of 1948, 65, 71 and the Kargil war have no other justifications other than that is a disputed territory and decision regarding its future is still pending.”
