In­dia sup­press­ing Kash­miris thru brute force: Mir­waiz

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRINAGAR—The Chair­man of his own Hur­riyet fo­rum, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, has said that In­dia is try­ing to sup­press the Kash­miris’ on­go­ing free­dom move­ment through use of brute force.

Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq ad­dress­ing a gath­er­ing at Sangh­pora in Pat­tan area of Bara­mulla, to­day, said that New Delhi wanted to change the de­mog­ra­phy of Jammu and Kash­mir. He said that sep­a­rate town­ships for Kash­miri Pan­dits, sep­a­rate colonies for re­tired In­dian sol­diers and new in­dus­trial pol­icy in Kash­mir were all part of this ne­far­i­ous de­sign.

The Mir­waiz said that the Hur­riyet lead­er­ship had for­mu­lated a joint pro­gramme to counter these con­spir­a­cies. He urged the peo­ple to make the joint pro­gramme a suc­cess “as it is a ques­tion of our iden­tity and fu­ture.”

“We will wel­come Kash­miri Pan­dits in their homes and we are not against any plans to give them fi­nan­cial pack­age to buy prop­erty,” he said. How­ever, he added, the Kash­miris wouldn’t al­low sep­a­rate town­ships be­ing built for the Pan­dits.

The fo­rum lead­ers, Javaid Ah­mad Mir, Mas­roor Abbas An­sari, Muham­mad Mu­sad­diq Aadil and Sufi Mush­taq Ah­mad also ad­dressed on the oc­ca­sion.—KMS
