Support of resolution against Lanka has exposed India
Srinagar, March 23, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has said that India’s support to the UN resolution against Sri Lanka on human rights violations against the Tamil population has exposed its double standards and hypocrisy.
The APHC Chairman, who continues to remain under house arrest in Srinagar, in a statement expressed surprise that what moral right does India have to condemn such violations while it was perpetrating similar crimes against Kashmiris every day.
The Mirwaiz lashed out at pro-India National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party for choosing to barter the sentiments and emotions of Kashmiris for their self-seeking lust for political power.
“If NC was in fact serious about its reservations and opposition to Afzal Guru’s execution, what stopped it from withdrawing support to the UPA in New Delhi? What stopped Omar Abdullah from recalling Farooq Abdullah from the Cabinet?
The Mirwaiz maintained that the PDP was never serious about either supporting a resolution to ask for clemency for Afzal Guru and very craftily chose not to press for a resolution seeking the return of his mortal remains.
Mirwaiz pointed out that while it was Mufti Sayeed who, as the Home Minister of India, sent Jagmohan to Kashmir, and invoked the black law, Armed Forces Special Powers Act in the territory and gave a free-hand to Indian forces to mow down Kashmiris with impunity, It was NC that created the notorious Special Task Force (STF) and gave it a clear-cut mandate to conduct extra-judicial murders and abductions in Kashmir.
“NC’s relationship with Ikhwanis was and remains a fact. Both parties, in various positions and manifestations, have been the co-perpetuators of oppression and murders in Kashmir and there is absolutely no change in their commitment to participate in each and every unjust and ruthless decision that is taken against Kashmiris and their sentiments,” he stated.
The Mirwaiz asked the people to understand that neither NC nor PDP could or would ever stand up for their sentiments or dignity as their prime objective is only to safeguard their political interests and lust for power.
