Srinagar, April 22, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, has asked New Delhi to stop suppressing Kashmiris as oppressive policies cannot bury the Kashmir dispute. Mukhtar Ahmad Waza addressing a public gathering in Shumhal Aishmuqam, slammed New Delhi for oppressing the Kashmiris demanding their right to self-determination. “Torture, killing, arrests and slapping draconian law Public Safety Act on innocent and peace-loving people will not yield anything,” he said.
He said that Kashmir was a political dispute and should be dealt politically and democratically. He said that economic packages, construction of roads and huge buildings in Kashmir could not be the substitute to right to self-determination for which Kashmiris had laid down their precious lives.
Mukhtar Waza said that both the nuclear countries Pakistan and India had no option other than talking to each other on issues that had put the peace of whole South Asian region at stake. He paid tributes to the Kashmiri martyrs and reaffirmed the Kashmiris’ resolve to take the ongoing movement to its logical conclusion.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement, Zafar Akbar Butt, in a statement in Srinagar said that India’s Hydroelectric Power Corporation was replica of modern East India Company. He said that the company was earning billions of rupees from Kashmir by generating electricity on Kashmir’s water. He slammed the puppet administration that failed to bring back the projects to the territory. Meanwhile, JKSM leaders, Molvi Rafiq, Farooq Ahmad and Molvi Rashid addressed gatherings at Shopian, Ganderbal and Srinagar under mass contact programme.
