Joint strat­egy be­ing de­vised to meet de­mo­graphic threats: Mir­waiz

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRI­NA­GAR—Cau­tion­ing that at­tempts of harm­ing the re­li­gious and cul­tural iden­tity of Kash­miris and chang­ing the de­mog­ra­phy of the re­gion by con­vert­ing Mus­lim-ma­jor­ity into a mi­nor­ity were be­ing made un­der a well planned de­sign, All Par­ties Hur­riyat Con­fer­ence Chair­man, Mir­waiz Dr. Moulvi Muham­mad Umar Fa­rooq said a joint strat­egy would be de­vised to meet th­ese chal­lenges and foil the ne­far­i­ous de­signs of the RSS and its col­lab­o­ra­tors in the state.

The Mir­waiz said that all anti-Kash­mir plans and con­spir­a­cies be­ing at­tempted against the peo­ple of Kash­mir would be op­posed tooth and nail and could be coun­tered only by show­ing strong in­volve­ment and stead­fast­ness to carry the re­sis­tance move­ment for­ward.

Ex­press­ing de­ter­mi­na­tion that a joint strat­egy would be de­vised to counter th­ese de­signs, he said the re­sis­tance lead­er­ship would not stay silent but will meet th­ese chal­lenges head on.

In his ad­dress be­fore the Fri­day con­gre­ga­tional prayers at the Jamia Masjid in Sri­na­gar, the APHC Chair­man while ap­peal­ing peo­ple to stay vig­i­lant and guarded against the anti peo­ple plans of the gov­ern­ment said, since the day BJP had come to power at New Delhi, their col­lab­o­ra­tors in Kash­mir hand in glove with their pa­trons were busy work­ing against the in­ter­est of the peo­ple of Kash­mir.

He said plans of set­ting up colonies for retired Army men (Sainik colonies), refugees and satel­lite colonies for Kash­miri Pan­dits be­sides an anti Kash­miri In­dus­trial Pol­icy clearly points to­wards the de­signs of car­ry­ing out a de­mo­graphic change and the di­lu­tion of the dis­puted na­ture of Jammu and Kash­mir.

Re­mind­ing the po­lit­i­cal par­ties in power in Jammu Kash­mir that they were only meant for pro­vid­ing Sadak, Pani aur Bi­jli (roads, wa­ter and elec­tric sup­ply) and suf­fice the daily needs of the peo­ple, the Mir­waiz cau­tioned them against harm­ing the peo­ples’ larger in­ter­ests and called upon them to come up with a clear-cut pol­icy be­fore the peo­ple, who oth­er­wise would give them a hard time.

Terming Kash­miri Pan­dits an in­sep­a­ra­ble part of Kash­miri so­ci­ety, he said their re­turn to Val­ley would be wel­comed by one and all but an at­tempt to di­vide peo­ple by sep­a­rat­ing them on re­li­gious or sec­tar­ian ba­sis would be strongly op­posed by the Hur­riyat.

Pay­ing trib­utes to Sha­heed-e-Mil­lat Mir­waiz Moulvi Muham­mad Fa­rooq, Sha­heed-e-Hur­riyat Khawaja Abdul Gani Lone, Mar­tyrs of Hawal and all the mar­tyrs of Kash­mir’s re­sis­tance move­ment for their sac­ri­fices, the APHC Chair­man said Sha­heed-e-Mil­lat’s mar­tyr­dom was a na­tional tragedy in the his­tory of Kash­mir.

He said from 1963 to the day of his mar­tyr­dom, Sha­heed-eMil­lat had led the just strug­gle of Kash­miri peo­ple and guided them to­wards the right path. It was for his great con­tri­bu­tion that in the his­tory of en­tire South Asia, for the first time scores of mourn­ers laid their lives to the bul­lets of ruth­less forces while ac­com­pa­ny­ing the fu­neral pro­ces­sion of their beloved leader.

On the oc­ca­sion, the Jamia Masjid Sri­na­gar Imam Hai Moulana Syed Ah­mad Naqsh­bandi paid glow­ing trib­utes to the Sha­heede-Mil­lat and ap­pre­ci­ated peo­ple for car­ry­ing for­ward his mis­sion with ded­i­ca­tion.

Af­ter the Fri­day con­gre­ga­tional prayers, as per the pro­gramme, a rally led by the Mir­waiz was taken out from Jamia Masjid Sri­na­gar in which peo­ple in­clud­ing men, women and youth par­tic­i­pated in large num­bers.

The rally cul­mi­nated at Sha­heedi Chowk amid pro-Is­lam, proAzadi and ‘Jis Kash­mir Ko Khoon Sey Seecha, Woh Kash­mir Ha­mara Hai’ slo­gans with the hoist­ing of Jammu Kash­mir Awami Ma­jlis-e-Amal flag.

On the oc­ca­sion, while pay­ing trib­utes to Shaeed-e-Mil­lat, Shaeed-e-Hur­riyat, Mar­tyrs of Hawal and all mar­tyrs of Kash­mir, it was re­solved that the mis­sion of th­ese mar­tyrs would be taken to its log­i­cal con­clu­sion.—Email
