Seeks German Chancellor’s intervention

Srinagar, Sep 6: Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani in an open letter to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, today said that Kashmiris have been expressing unwavering support for the United Nations Resolutions on Kashmir even as the international community has done little to honor its commitments and responsibilities.
 “Kashmiris are dismayed and disappointed by the decision of the German Embassy in India to organize a concert in Kashmir. We believe that this concert is being used by India to legitimize its military control on our land and whitewash its atrocities in Kashmir. The Kashmiri people had high hopes that Germany after reunification will play a meaningful and responsible role in the resolution of the Kashmir dispute for an enduring and just peace in South Asia. But the decision of the Germany Embassy to organize this musical concert against the wishes of the Kashmiri people has forced me to seek your intervention. Kashmir is a disputed territory and such an intervention undermines the efforts of Kashmir freedom fighters who have been struggling against New Delhi’s illegal military control since 1947,” the letter reads.
 Before concluding, Geelani has invited the German Chancellor to visit Kashmir herself and witness the sufferings of the people.
 “I invite you to Kashmir to witness for yourself the oppression which Kashmiris face even in their everyday lives. Lastly, I again appeal to you as a leader of Germany and Europe to intervene in this matter,” reads the letter.
