SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Rajbagh (R) chairman Farooq Siddiqi has described M K Narayanan’s latest statement as out-of-date and defunct and echo’s India’s nervousness about US policy regarding Kashmir.
According to a press note Siddiqi said that Indian government must take the involvement of international community in resolving Kashmir issue as an opportunity for peace in south Asia rather than coerce its opinion and exhibit itself as responsible nation.
Such policy is outmoded and has failed the test of time in the last sixty years. In the name of democracy and national interest India still instills state terror on innocent people of Kashmir which must be stopped. Narayanan had commented about President Barack Obama views on Kashmir as “Barking up the wrong tree”.
Paying rich tributes to Shaheed Maqbool Butt whose 25th anniversary falls on February 11, Farooq Siddiqi said that Indian government thought that by hanging him, they had silenced voice of freedom for Kashmir. But his victorious spirit was soaring over the nation of Kashmir and spreading out from generation to generation.
He also urged upon all the governments, the Secretary General of the United Nations and the High Commissioner for Human Rights to impress upon the Government of India to accede to the “Peoples’ Demand” and return the body of Martyr Maqbool Butt to the people of Kashmir for a befitting burial at the empty grave that has been preserved for him at martyrs grave yard at Idd Gah in Srinagar.-SANA
