Kashmiri refugees reject ‘surrender policy’
Muzaffarabad, March 13: While rejecting India’s “surrender policy,” representatives of Kashmiri refugees here on Sunday vowed to continue the struggle, both militarily and politically.
“Kashmiri refugees will play their role in the movement by extending full support not only to the pro-freedom political leadership but also the militant leadership,” said a resolution adopted at their ‘roundtable conference.’
Held in the hall of press club, the conference was attended prominent refugee leaders, including the presidents of 11 major refugee camps in Muzaffarabad.
Participants rejected the surrender policy offered by India to the Pakistan administered Kashmir based Kashmiri refugees and former militants and said they would continue the struggle till they get their right to self determination. “We won’t accept any option or decision that betrays the blood of 500,000 Kashmiris. Instead the freedom movement will enjoy our moral, political and physical support,” the resolution said.
They hailed Syed Ali Geelani, Shabir Ahmed Shah, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and other pro-freedom leaders and people of Jammu and Kashmir for their heroic struggle. “The refugees and militants are ready to play a practical role in the Kashmir movement, wherever, whenever and however asked by Syed Salahuddin,” they said.
Some of them also called for establishment of a ‘national government’ in PaK which they believed could bring about political stability in the region and also deliver on the front of Kashmir struggle.
