India working on plans to prolong forced occupation: Geelani
SRINAGAR—The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Geelani has said that India is working on different plans including construction of soldier colonies, separate townships for Kashmiri Pandits and introduction of Industrial Policy to prolong its forced occupation over Jammu and Kashmir.
Syed Ali Geelani said this while presiding over the meeting of APHC advisory council at his Hyderpora residence in Srinagar, today. He said that work on these antipeople projects had been expedited since the PDP-BJP coalition came into power.
He pointed out that communal forces had started materializing the dream of RSS through use of government machinery. Syed Ali Geelani deplored that puppet Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and her party PDP had sold away everything that belonged to Kashmir and the Kashmiri people including their identity.
He said that no Kashmiri was against the return of Pandits but Indian policymakers wanted to divide Muslims and Pandits in the name of religion.Speakers at a seminar organised by Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Movement in Jammu demanded amicable settlement of the Kashmir dispute involving the Kashmiri people in the process.
The one-day seminar, which was presided over by JKFM Chairman, Muhammad Sharief Sartaj, explored means and ways for restoration of durable peace in South Asia. Those who addressed the event included Anuradha Bhasin, Professor Dedar Singh, Narinder Singh Khalsa, Himat Singh and Gurdev Singh. Muhammad Sharief Sartaj addressing on the occasion asked for resolution of the Kashmir dispute through implementation of the UN resolutions.
Meanwhile, the molestation victim schoolgirl of Handwara talking to media men in Srinagar said that a policeman dragged her to Handwara station after she was subjected to molestation by an Indian soldier.
The girl who appeared in public for the first time along with her parents almost a month after the incident said that police officers forced her to follow their orders in custody and make statements as per their requirements.—KMS
