Madhav’s statement far from reality: Hurriyet leaders

Srinagar, December 30, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leaders, Shabbir Ahmad Shah and Zafar Akbar Butt have termed the recent statement of BJP General Secretary, Ram Madhav, as far from reality and based on stubbornness. Shabbir Ahmad Shah in a statement in Srinagar said, “Madhav’s statement is a white lie and unrealistic. Indian rulers should revisit the history to learn how, after occupying Jammu and Kashmir in 1947, their first Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru promised of referendum.” He said that the pro-India parties in Kashmir were stooges of India and they had nothing to do with the Kashmir issue.

Shabbir Shah urged Pakistan to give priority to the Kashmir dispute in talks with India. Zafar Akbar Butt in a statement while reacting to Madhav’s assertion said that Jammu and Kashmir was a long-pending dispute with the UN Security Council and the Kashmiris had rendered matchless sacrifices for its resolution. Zafar Akbar Butt along with a delegation visited several areas of Tehsil Chadoora and denounced the Indian state terrorism in the territory.

“On water issue, according to the people, police arrested dozens and they were tortured in Chadoora Police Station,” the statement further said. India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) General Secretary, Ram Madhav, in a recent interview with Al-Jazeera said, “The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) still believes that one day these parts, which have for historical reasons separated only 60 years ago, will again, through popular goodwill, come together and Akhand Bharat will be created.”

Meanwhile, the Chairman of United Jihad Council Chairman, Syed Salahuddin, in a statement denounced the arrest of Jamu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, and his associates in fake cases. He said that it was disgusting on part of PDP-BJP regime to level murder charges against the liberation leaders and activists.
