Reacting to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement that development would solve the Kashmir issue, the Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani today said that it is ridiculous and irresponsible on part of Modi to look to the Kashmir issue through his "fake rhetoric of development."
"Modi should be in know of the fact that we are economically much better than most of the states in India. Had India not deprived us of our own resources we would have been able to feed other states as well," Geelani, in a statement today, said.
Commenting on breaking his (Modi's) silence so late on the human loss and dance of death throughout the state, blinding innocent kids and injuring thousands of youth, Geelani said, "His inner 'beast' of 2002 Gujarat is still thriving in him despite becoming Prime Minister of India."
Referring to the statement that Kashmiri boys should have laptops instead of stones in their hands, Geelani said, "Indian killer forces have made them blind forever. They will curse Modi and his country for rest of their lives."
Commenting on the BJP statement that Kashmir issue should be dealt with iron hands, Geelani said, "We are being handled rather manhandled with iron hands for the last seven decades but New Delhi's lust for blood is still not satisfied and it continues to crush us with heavy boots."
Geelani reminded the fanatic people of BJP that history is witness to the fact that no power on earth, no matter how cruel and barbaric that be, has ever succeeded in curbing the freedom sentiments.
Referring to the PDP Minister's statement on the probe into the recent killings, Geelani advised him to remain within his 'limits and don't poke nose in the matter least concerned to him'.
"We have had these political gimmicks of probes for the past so many decades and we can't be fooled by these hollow slogans. We will fight hard to break the Indian forcible occupation come what may," Geelani said.
