‘German Ambassador preferred to evade truth’

Srinagar, Sep 7:  The German Ambassador Micheal Steiner could not attend the Haqeeqat-e-Kashmir event citing similar timings of the two events.
The Civil Society group, however, said that Steiner preferred to stay away from the truth and instead ensured his presence with the ‘collaborators.’
Steiner had expressed his willingness after Civil Society group had sent him an invite for attending the parallel event. However, he didn’t turn up. A message sent to the Civil Society member by the German Embassy official regarding Steiner’s visit to Haqeeqat-e-Kashmir event, reads: “Ambassador Michael Seiner would have loved to attend SK Park event, however, at 4:30 pm, he had to welcome his guests.”
Talking to Greater Kashmir at the event, Dr Altaf Hussain, one of the organizers of the parallel event, said Steiner preferred to remain with the ‘collaborators.’ “He ensured his presence in the Shalimar garden event to stay away from the truth,” he said.
Imtiyaz Ahmed, who was present at SK Park event, said had Steiner’s intentions been good, he could have managed 10 minutes to attend the parallel event. “There is no denying the fact that Germany, New Delhi and JK government are in a hand-in-glove with each other,” he said.
