LoC fencing: Hurriyat (G) threatens agitation
‘Move aimed at maintaining permanent status quo in JK’
Srinagar, Dec 19: Terming the proposed fencing along the Line of Control (LoC) by the Government of India “a conspiracy to maintain permanent status quo in Jammu Kashmir”, the Hurriyat Conference (G) led by Syed Ali Geelani Wednesday warned that it would oppose the move tooth and nail.
The Hurriyat, at its executive council meeting held here today with its general secretary Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi in chair, asserted that the proposed fencing would “have a damaging effect on the disputed status of Jammu Kashmir.” The amalgam threatened to organize protests to impress the international community to take cognizance of any such move “aimed at maintaining a status quo.”
The leaders and representatives of all the constituent units of amalgam participated in the meeting.
“New Delhi is bent upon violating the international agreements and directions of international bodies with regard to the present geographical status and ceasefire between India and Pakistan,” said the Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar in a statement today, appealing to international community for intervention to urge New Delhi to stop the LoC fencing move.
The Hurriyat has asked Pakistan to clear its stand vis-à-vis Kashmir issue and explain its position on it. “It should raise voice against the move if it has not changed its stand on Kashmir,” said the spokesman.
“All the constituents of the conglomerate at the meeting expressed their serious concern that some quarters are advocating flexibility and so-called softening of borders which is detrimental to the interest of our just cause,” said the spokesman, adding that “the members at the meeting observed that New Delhi is least interested in the proposed trade and business and is only pursuing cunning politics and intends to dilute the core issue by mixing it with business.”
“The constituent members also observed and clarified that India and Pakistan are free to improve and extend their mutual trade but any solution or agreement contrary to the aspirations of the people vis-a-vis Kashmir issue will meet the same fate as that of Shimla and Tashqant agreements,” the spokesman said.
The meeting paid rich tributes to the martyrs of Sopore and said the “stubborn approach adopted by New Delhi” had resulted in the human loss in this disputed territory.
