Separatists lack ability to negotiate with India: Nazir Gilani
‘THEY HAVE NO PAPER OR PLAN’
Srinagar, Dec 28: Secretary General of Jammu Kashmir Council for Human Rights (JKCHR) Dr Syed Nazir Gilani on Tuesday raised questions over ability of separatists to negotiate with the Indian union on Kashmir.
“Separatists so far have shown lack of ability to negotiate with India,” Nazir told a news conference here.
Referring towards the past and current talks, he said, “They should have argued their case again and again if the other party was adamant.”
Alleging that separatist have “no paper or plan” with them to hold negotiations with India Nazir said, “If separatists lack the art of talks they should acknowledge it. They need to hire experts who can negotiate on their behalf.”
“I suggest Hurriyat (M) and Hurriyat (G) and other titles in politics to revisit the wisdom of their political phrase,” he said.
Nazir also said that Kashmiris should not pelt stones on the force personnel.
“Contrary we should assert our right to question the number, behaviour and location of Indian forces as stipulated in UN resolutions. We should question state government on its failure to confine the role of Indian forces within the terms of agreement with the government of India under which these forces were admitted into the state to protect life, honour and property in Kashmir”.
He also condemned the arrests of two university lecturers by police.
“It is not in police’s domain to decide what is wrong and right in academics,” Nazir said, adding, “The question paper pertaining to stone throwing would have provided best opportunity for police to study the psychology of youth. India wants to understand what is happening here. So the answers if evaluated would have helped authorities to how to react to the situation”.
JKCHR is a Non Governmental Organization and is having a special consultative status with the ECOSOC of the UN.
