ISLAMABAD: The veteran Hurriyet leader Syed Ali Gilani has said that India’s stand that Kashmir is its integral part is based on deceit and military might while Kashmiris’ struggle is based on principles.
According to KMS, Ali Gilani during his visit to Shopian, addressed a large public gathering where said, New Delhi-sponsored political parties in the territory including Congress, National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party were a part of the process under which Kashmiris were being slaughtered.
He referred to Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and said, “PDP is no better than NC or any other Indian party. Rapes, killings and other incidents also took place in Kashmir under the PDP’s rule.”
Since early morning on Thursday youths were making rounds across the town shouting pro-freedom slogans. Addressing people at Gole Chowk Shopian, Gilani said “Peoples Democratic Party is the offshoot of Congress while National Conference is patronized by the Congress right from 1938.”
“There are certain regional parties like PDP that hoodwink people by claiming to be representing the aspirations of Kashmiris but the reality is that they derive their origin from Congress and are equally responsible for strengthening occupation,” he added.
“It is you (pro-India leaders) who are heading the Unified Headquarters and under whose patronage armed forces commit human rights violations,” he said.
