Gee­lani warns In­dia against pur­su­ing in­im­i­cal in­dus­trial pol­icy

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRI­NA­GAR—The All Par­ties Hur­riyet Con­fer­ence Chair­man, Syed Ali Gee­lani, has strongly warned In­dian author­i­ties against ex­e­cu­tion of so-called In­dus­trial Pol­icy in Jammu and Kash­mir.

Syed Ali Gee­lani in a state­ment is­sued in Sri­na­gar Tues­day said that pro-free­dom lead­er­ship would work out a joint strat­egy af­ter Eid-ul-Fitr if the reser­va­tions of the Kash­miris were not ad­dressed over the new in­dus­trial pol­icy.

He cat­e­gor­i­cally men­tioned that Jammu and Kash­mir would never be al­lowed to be con­verted into Pales­tine. The APHC Chair­man also crit­i­cized pro-In­dia Kash­miri politi­cians for sur­ren­der­ing Kash­miris’ in­ter­ests to In­dia. Syed Ali Gee­lani was re­spond­ing to the dis­clo­sure made by the author­i­ties that 545 in­dus­trial units had been es­tab­lished by non-lo­cals in the ter­ri­tory.

The Chair­man of Hur­riyet fo­rum, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq in a state­ment in Sri­na­gar ex­pressed the hope that Pak­istan and In­dia would as­so­ci­ate the peo­ple of Kash­mir with di­a­logue process for set­tle­ment of the Kash­mir dis­pute as per the Kash­miris’ as­pi­ra­tions.

Hur­riyet lead­ers Yas­meen Raja, Fa­rooq Ah­mad Tawheedi, noted re­li­gious scholar Qazi Yasir, Jammu and Kash­mir Mus­lim League and United Ji­had Coun­cil in their sep­a­rate state­ments urged the peo­ple of Is­lam­abad to boy­cott the so-called by-elec­tions in the dis­trict to be held to­mor­row. They said that the elec­tions, which are, held un­der the shadow of gun had no cred­i­bil­ity.

A spe­cial event was jointly or­ga­nized by the World Mus­lim Congress and Youth Fo­rum for Kash­mir in Geneva to re­mem­ber the ris­ing star of Kash­mir cricket, Naeem Butt, who was killed by In­dian army per­son­nel two months ago.—GK
