Hurriyat G questions mainstream parties for helping erosion of Kashmir’s special status
Srinagar: All Parties Hurriyat Conference while reiterating its pledge and commitment for the Right to Self-Determination out rightly rejected the views put forward by the National Conference working president Omar Abdullah that the exemplary protest and civil curfew observed on 5th and 6th August against any proposed tinkering of Article 35-A is a tacit support for a resolution of Kashmir issue within the constitution of India.
In a statement, a Hurriyat spokesman termed the political whims of Omar Abdullah yet another cruel joke with the history of Kashmir stained by his predecessors since 1947.
“Article 370 and 35-A etc have remained a tool of exploitation in the hands of all the pro-Indian political parties who have been instrumental in abrogating these constitutional barriers to change the state subject laws and demography of the state,” said Hurriyat.
Hurriyat Conference clarifying its stand for the right to self-determination has time and again rejected any solution within the Indian constitution. The Hurriyat made a fervent appeal to the freedom loving people to remain vigilant against the ‘ill designed and double speak of all the pro-Indian political parties for whom the recent civil curfew and strong protest has served as an eye opener.
“The Hurriyat Conference, for the sake of a simple argument, likes to pose a series of questions to all such pro-Indian political parties regarding the fulfillment of their allegiance to the constitution of Jammu and Kashmir which clearly lays down to have a president a prime minister, chief justice, higher officials and bureaucracy, all from the permanent residents of the state. The same parties may be asked about the present state of bureaucracy, judiciary and police department where the non-resident officials have outnumbered the locals. The Hurriyat may ask such pro-Indian parties who are responsible for opening the flood gates of non-residents to occupy such key posts in the State?,” said the statement.
