Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani today said despite "utilizing military might" during last seven decades, "New Delhi couldn't alter the discourse on Kashmir issue and its continuous denial has not caused any harm to its significance."

"Their colonial and despotic approach won't change the historical realities about Kashmir issue nor can they break our resolve or make us to budge," Geelani, in a statement today, said.

Commenting on the "submissive" approach of PDP for securing favors from Delhi and consequent refusal for dialogue by Jan Sangh leadership, Geelani said, "This has least affected the legitimacies about Kashmir tangle."

"We will never beg for talks. However, PDP is strained and feel no shame as they are desperate to save their face," he said.

Rejecting bilateral talks, Geelani said, "Dialogues either between India and Pakistan or Delhi and Srinagar are futile exercises unless Kashmir issue is resolved through UN resolutions."

"Indian leadership employed all its measures and failed to lure people, as people at no time bargained for their cherished aspiration," he said.

Referring to Delhi's Kashmir policy, Geelani said, "They failed and it is because of their unrealistic approach, situation in Kashmir is worsening with each passing day."

Ridiculing the statements of Ram Madhav and Amit Shah, Geelani said, "They through their frivolous and furious speeches on one hand subdue their followers and  irritate their allies in PDP, however we are not scared of these threat statements. These gimmicks instead infuse a fresh lease of life in our freedom sentiments."

Meanwhile, Geelani expressed his shock and grief over the death of a civilian in Khanyar blast. In his condolence message to bereaved family, Geelani said, "All these sad events are outcome of egoistic approach of India and it is the basic reason for loss of precious lives in state."
