We have to move forward with a united face: Malik
QAYOOM CASTIGATES HURRIYAT LEADER FOR TERMING UN RESOLUTIONS IRRELEVANT
TUFAIL MATOO REMEMBERED
Srinagar, June 11: The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Monday stressed on the need for carrying out a thorough introspection at the individual level to see what went wrong during the struggle.
“Every person should introspect at his personal level what went wrong. We have to move forward with a united face to achieve the goal. If we will be able to rectify our mistakes after introspection we will definitely succeed,” Malik said while speaking at a function held to mark the 2nd anniversary of Tufail Ashraf Matoo at his residence at Saida Kadal here. Tufail was killed on June 11, 2010 after being allegedly hit by a police teargas shell in old city.
Appealing writers to write against the curbs imposed by the government on the freedom of expression and movement, Malik said, “Suppression will again lead to youth seeking an armed recourse, writers should highlight this and be impartial. Someone has rightly said writer can either be with the state or with the people.”
Malik said movements in 2008 and 2010 exposed New Delhi’s propaganda. “They were projecting our struggle as Pakistan sponsored movement. In 2010 world questioned them about the demands of lakhs of people on roads. Our boys did not become suicide bombers. They did not kill soldiers. They were peacefully demanding their right. But forces killed our unarmed boys,” he said.
Blaming the agencies for killing Major Avtar, who had killed advocate Jaleel Andrabi, the DEM chief said, “Avtar Singh was murdered by Indian agencies. Otherwise how he would have killed his family separately?” she questioned.
She said that Tufail Matoo and hundreds of others who have laid down their life for a cause would always be remembered.
However she said that values and Islamic teachings should be the guiding principle for the struggle.
High Court Bar Association (HCBA) Chairman, Mian Qayoom, said there has been an inordinate delay in Tufail’s case. “Every time police says that they have recorded statements of witnesses. It does not move beyond that.”
Castigating the senior Huriyat leader for terming UN resolutions “irrelevant” Qayoom said, “Leaders should not give contradictory statements. It is written in the UN resolutions that India and Pakistan should leave Kashmir and pave way for right to self determination. UN resolutions form bedrock of our movement. No one should be allowed to disrupt it.”
Castigating the leadership President of Students Islamic League, Shakeel Ahmed Bakshi said, “We cannot perform experiments with the movement. Leadership should take result oriented steps. In 1990 we were saying that taking up gun is right and no we denounce it. Nations set their goals and struggle to achieve them.”
He said that post 90 movements should not go the way of Mahaz-i-Azadi movement of 80’s.
Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (H), chairman Javaid Ahmed Mir said, “Our struggle is legitimate and we should not beg before India and Pakistan for dialogue.”
“We will not accept any sell out and will not accept any ready made solution of intelligentsia of India and Pakistan. Our struggle is for right to self determination.”
Others who spoke on the occasion included, Parveena Ahengar, Hakeem Abdul Rashid, Anuradha Basin and Ahsan Untoo.
