People greet interlocutors with Azadi slogans
UMER MAQBOOL DAR
Langate (Handwara) Dec 22: Hundreds of people greeted interlocutors, appointed by New Delhi on Kashmir, with pro-freedom slogans in this north Kashmir town on Wednesday.
People pledged not to pelt stones, if government allowed the peaceful protests for the resolution of Kashmir issue.
Speaking on the occasion one of the interlocutors Radha Kumar said, she would convey the sentiments of Kashmiris to New Delhi. “We are here to listen to you,” she said.
Many victims of the conflict narrated before the interlocutors, how their kith and kin were killed in the past two decades. Most of the people, who met the interlocutors demanded right to self-determination.
When independent legislator for Langate Er. Rashid asked the people, who had converged to interact with the interlocutors, whether they want Pakistan, India, self-rule, autonomy or Azadi, all of them raised up their hands in favour of “Azadi,” and raised pro-freedom slogans.
Terming heirs of martyrs as the true representatives of Kashmiris, Er Rashid, advocated the talks with pro-freedom groups and the chairman of United Jehad Council Syed Salahuddin
“We may not agree with their ideology but we can’t think of any solution without their involvement. All of them were not unemployed or illiterate; most of them picked guns because all other means for resolving 60-year dispute failed. Let you (interlocutors) exhibit magnanimity and meet Geelani and Mirwaiz, the way All Party Delegation did,” he said.
