UN Resolutions our right: Geelani
‘To Be Implemented Provided People Are Interested’
Srinagar, May 19: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani Saturday said the statement by a Hurriyat leader (Professor Abdul Gani Bhat) that ‘United Nations Resolutions on Kashmir were impracticable’ had no base and such kinds of statements were not expected from those who had already adhered to the implementation of the UN resolutions.
“The statement is not going to literally harm the implementation of UN Resolution but the irony is that our people themselves go against what we deserve. UN Resolutions are our right and they are to be implemented provided people are interested,” Geelani said while speaking at a seminar, here.
He said New Delhi was resorting to conspiracies and was coming in the way of implementation of UN Resolutions over Kashmir Issue. “The reality is that Indian leaders themselves took the Kashmir issue to Security Council but now they are putting impediments in implementation of UN resolutions by resorting to conspiracies,” Geelani said.
He said the Secretary General of UN Ban ki Moon has also asked New Delhi to resolve Kashmir problem. “But it is in the interests of New Delhi to occupy us and loot our resources to its fullest. They are after strengthening military power even after Army has declared that there are only 200 militants in the Valley. The irony is that India has deployed 7.5 lakh forces. India is not willing to see UN Resolution on Kashmir being implemented” he said.
“The Indian system is based on misuse of power and they are even going to the extent of changing behavior of peoples which in fact has started in the form of cultural and ideological invasion,” Geelani said.
The Hurriyat (G) Chairman said people of Kashmir too need to carryout a thorough introspection. “We made governments and then demanded freedom. We have to change this style and follow one goal which will see the light of the day,” he said.
“Municipal polls are coming. Now people will be bracing for these which at the end will lead nowhere. Why are we doing this? Why do we harm our own cause?” he asked.
“People should check on stakeholders as to whom those have alliances with,” he added.
Geelani said New Delhi was institutionalizing corruption, immorality and was injecting a new civilization in Kashmiris which had no relevance with their own culture and faith. “Police and Army are in a process of organizing various functions in educational institutions but the reality is that it is aimed to snatch from students their culture, faith and identity,” he said, adding that there should be no intervention of Police and Army in academic affairs.
The Hurriyat (G) Chairman said youth need to rise and take the movement forward through voice, faith and pen. “It is a conspiracy and youth should stay away from all this. They must realize that their faith is being entrapped by injecting in them so-called ideals of modernization,” he said.
Geelani passed a resolution seeking implementation of UN Resolution as in case of Kosovo, South Sudan and East Timor.
Noted columnist Dr Javid Iqbal said UN Resolutions on Kashmir issue would always remain relevant “United Nations Resolution guarantees us Right to Self Determination,” he said.
Iqbal said 37 countries have been so far liberated due to the implementation of UN Resolutions. “Right to Self Determination is the element of our faith. No one should disturb it,” he said.
Renowned columnist Hassan Zainageeri said, “New Delhi is suffering from ailment and is not recognizing the problem of Kashmir. They have a problem of not understanding a simple thing of ours: Right to Self Determination. Same is the case with our so-called Hurriyat leaders who are giving such kind of statements,” he said.
“Such statements are aimed to drag the K-Issue away from the agenda of United Nations,” he said.
Zainageeri said UN Resolutions provide legal base to the Kashmir struggle. “And if there is no solution there is a nuclear volcano,” he said.
President of Bar Association Mian Qayoom said UN Resolutions were not only providing legal base but factual also.
Other who spoke on the occasion were: Abdul Majid Zargar, Zahir-ud-din, Dr Sheikh Showkat Hussain, Z G Muhammad, Anwar Ashai and advocate M S Reshi.
