We won’t give in to extremists’ pressure: PPF
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 8: The Jammu Kashmir Peoples’ Political Front, a party headed by Fazal Haq Qureshi, on Tuesday said it won’t give in to any pressure tactics employed by extremist and fascist forces.
Strongly condemning the murderous assault on its president, PPF at a meeting today with Muhammad Musadiq Adil in chair, discussed at length the situation arising from the assault on Fazal and asserted that the party would not be overawed and unnerved by the inhuman physical assaults and would continue its efforts to resolve the Kashmir issue through effective, peaceful and civilized methods.
“Front leadership has never resorted to any sell-out. Everyone knows that when we were sent to jails and deprived of our government jobs, some people were contesting elections and taking oath on Indian constitution. Now the same people are accusing us of sell-out and we are being attacked,” said the Front spokesman, adding that “Those looking upon dialogue as sell-out are in fact demonstrating their intellectual bankruptcy and lack of confidence and vision. War of words will lead us nowhere. We are required to have full understanding of the political situation around and chalk out a clear cut strategy for resolving the problem without compromising the basic stand.”
“The party will continue to extend its wholehearted support to the process of talks between Kashmir, Pakistan and India for resolving Kashmir issue,” said a spokesman of the Front in a statement today.
The meeting thanked the people for demonstrating their deep love for and devotion with their sincere leader and for condemning severely the forces involved in the murderous assault on him.
