Geelani asks New Delhi to settles issues with Pak, China
Srinagar, Apr 24: The chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah on Tuesday exhorted New Delhi to settle all the contentious issues with Pakistan and China to stop intervention of western powers in the subcontinent.
“The resolution of Kashmir issue will benefit Indian masses more than Kashmiris and they will get rid of poverty and penury,” a spokesman of the conglomerate quoted Geelani as having said while addressing a conference at Urdu Ghar in Hyderabad.
The conference titled “Human Rights and Kashmir” was organized by the Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee, Hyderabad. Geelani, according to the spokesman said the British pitted India and Pakistan against each other by creating Kashmir issue. “The western world was able to sell their arms and ammunition to these two neighbouring countries due to Kashmir. It is main reason for animosity between India and Pakistan. Once this issue is resolved in its right historical perspective, the rivalry and animosity between the two nations will automatically come to end and they will live like good neighbours,” he said, adding that New Delhi is allegedly misleading its people by feeding them with wrong information about Kashmir.
“The minorities are test case for a country.” He alleged that New Delhi failed to provide equal status and justice to its minorities. He suggested to the Muslims of India that they should make right use of their votes, establish their own separate political identity and protect their culture.” He alleged that Rightwing extremism was spreading and digging its roots deep in whole India and that the existence of minorities has become intolerable.
Appealing Muslims to demonstrate patience and tolerance, Geelani said they should play a healthy and constructive role and highlight their problems and grievances in a peaceful and planned way under a well worked out strategy.
Prominent among hundreds of others present at the Conference were Lateef Ahmad Khan, Bhagat Singh’s nephew Prof Jagmohan Singh, Prof Rehana Sultan, Abdul Rehman Geelani and Moulana Naseer-ud-Din.
