Maan demands referendum in JK, condemns Gool killings
Srinagar, July 21: President of Akali Dal Maan and prominent Sikh leader Simran Jeet Singh Mann on Sunday condemned the killing of four unarmed civilians by paramilitary BSF men at Gool in Ramban district and said that unless there would be referendum in JK the peace in subcontinent would be a farfetched dream.
In a statement a spokesperson of the DFP said Mann, along with his associates, was coming to meet the DFP Chairman Shabir Ahmed Shah at Sadder Police Station in uptown to discuss the prevailing situation in Kashmir. “But as soon as Police came to know about his arrival, they immediately took Shah to his residence and placed him under house arrest,” he said. Mann along with other Sikh leaders reached Shah’s house in uptown here and met him.
The Akali Dal Maan president told Shah that Indian government has done equal injustice and oppression on both the Sikh community and Kashmiris. Elaborating he said Akali Dal Maan recognizes Kashmir as an international dispute and believes that this issue has to be resolved as per the United Nations’ resolutions.
Both the leaders strongly condemned the use of brute force and killing of those protesting against the desecration of Holy Quran. They also severely condemned the policy of curbing the movement of Kashmiris. Shah recounted each and every detail of the injustices and cruelty lashed out by forces in nook and corner of Jammu and Kashmir, particularly the details from martyrdom of Shaheed Afzal Guru to Gool, Ramban massacre,” he said. Shabir Shah, according to the DFP spokesman, made Mann aware about the “anti-democratic, anti-human and anti-moral policies of New Delhi vis-à-vis Kashmir, aimed at suppressing the movement of Kashmiris.” Shah expressed gratitude to Sikh brethren and Sikh leadership over their unrelenting support to Kashmiris from past 66 years as against the wishes of Indian politicians by showing a unique example of Sikh-Muslim communal harmony and brotherhood.
