Geelani writes to Nawaz Sharif

‘Don’t bargain aspirations of Kashmiris’


Srinagar,May 17: Chairman of Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Friday wrote a letter to PML-N head and would be Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif urging him not to ‘bargain’  aspirations of people of Jammu and Kashmir during negotiations with India.
In the letter, Geelani has rejected Musharraf’s four-point formula, self-rule and autonomy.
“All these options are vague and cosmetic in nature aimed to dilute the Kashmir issue. The alternatives in no way would prove permanent, lasting and final solution to vexed Kashmir problem. They in no way satisfy and fulfill the aspirations and the sacrifices laid by the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” Geelani writes in the letter. 
“Your recent statement while announcing that your regime will pick the threads where it were left in past but do consider that India won’t miss any opportunity and would harp its tune that Kashmir is their integral part. It won’t even hesitate or feel shy to say that negotiations are initiated for that Kashmir which with its political vision had decided its future,” the letter reads.  “While in chair as Prime Minister of Sovereign Pakistan, your good self has authority to come to terms with the parties. But while dealing with India it is to mention that the negotiations should be result oriented and not at the cost of aspirations of people of Jammu and Kashmir. And your stand with respect to Kashmir dispute must be unambiguous and should convey a clear message that 18 resolutions guaranteeing the right to self determination to people of Jammu and Kashmir are final and no other midway or substitute solutions are accepted at any cost.”
Geelani further writes that it has been observed that during all negotiations and parleys though the two countries admit that all disputes between the two would be solved through negotiations.
“But despite more than 150 mutual meeting and agreements there seems no end and India with its power of arrogance and rigid approach has denied any just solution for the vexed problem,” the letter reads.  
Hurriyat (G) spokesman Ayaz Akbar said the letter has been mailed and couriered to Nawaz Sharif and Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi.
