Won’t accept any imposed K-solution: Geelani
Srinagar, May 4: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Wednesday reiterated that Kashmiris would not accept any imposed solution.
“We will not accept any imposed solution which is against our basic right of self determination. We want to make it clear that no solution within the constitution of India would be acceptable to us,” Geelani said, while addressing the fifth Global Discourse on Kashmir being held at Brussels through video conference here.
Geelani said the international community including United Nations Security Council should play their role in attaining the basic right of Kashmiris and “curbing the human rights violations committed by the forces.”
“We are also humans and we should be treated like humans. If India is snatching rights of one crore 30 lakh people, it is the responsibility of the international community to prevent it from doing so,” he said.
“Our 200 unarmed people have fallen to bullets of forces in past 2–years. They were not carrying any gun, lathi, hand grenade or teargas shells and were staging peaceful protests,” he said.
The president of Democratic Freedom Party Shabir Ahmad Shah said Kashmir dispute needs the political resolution. “India needs to revoke black laws, start demilitarization and release the political prisoners including teenagers to demonstrate its seriousness,” he said. “We urge the International Community to arrange the referendum for us on the lines of East Timor and Sudan.”
JKLF( R ) chairman Farooq Ahmed Dar alias Bitta Karate presented his paper in the conference through e- mail.
In his paper, Karate said it was high time to enter into dialogue process for the resolution of the vexed Kashmir issue. “Last year, 120 innocents were killed and entire Valley was put under curfew for the 6-months,” he said. “It is imperative for the international community especially European Union to play its role in the resolution of the Kashmir issue for long term political stability and peace in south Asian region.”
Senior vice-chairman of JKLF (R) Javid Ahmed Mir, called upon international community to come forward for the resolution of the Kashmir issue.
“Western countries and Europe have played a significant role in solving disputes like Ireland and East Timor. Why don’t they come forward here? For how long will this bloodshed continue?” he questioned.
