Yasin Malik berates employees’ leaders for ‘betraying people of Kashmir’
Srinagar: Chairman, Jammu Kashmir liberation front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik today said that leadership of government employees and trade unions has played a shameful role from 90’s and betrayed the national cause of Kashmiris.
In a statement issued today, while terming election and power politics in Jammu Kashmir as the main cause of delay in resolution of Jammu Kashmir dispute, Malik said that India has always used election politics and participation in it as a justification to delay the resolution of Kashmir issue and has thus denied the people of Jammu Kashmir their basic right of self-determination.
He said that from 90’s we have seen almost every leader, leading government employees starting his career in the name of employee welfare, supporting peoples cause, working for the human rights of Kashmiris but the same people taking no time in switching over their loyalty and sitting in Indian lap for the lust of power.
“In 90’s, Ishtiyaq Qadri was leading employees and delivering fiery speeches in favor of Mujahideen but soon he landed into dirty politics and betrayed this nation and his employees too. He was succeeded by Khurshid Aalam and Muntazir Mohi-ud-din. After these two Abdul Qayoom Wani assumed the charge of leadership but he too treading path of his predecessors repeated the same story of betrayal and treachery recently,” Malik said.
JKLF chairman said that they have actually harmed and shamed the exemplary and dedicated trade unionism in Jammu Kashmir which was started by a Pandit trade union leader Sampat Prakash and Abul Majeed Khan.
Meanwhile, Malik has expressed his heartfelt grief and sorrow over the demise of Ghulam Hassan Zahid. Deceased was brother of famous columnist and social leader Z G Muhammad.
