KASHMIRIS HAVE BURNED THEIR BOATS – Muhammad Farooq Rehmani
Islamabad, 25 Jul, 2010(PR): Muhammad Farooq Rehmani Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League has said the ongoing upsurge against the over stay of Indian troops and paramilitary forces, draconian laws and installation of stooges by fraud elections; handled by the 21st century youth has the stamina to continue the unarmed fight for the right of selfdetermination, as they have burned their boats and exhausted their patience before the monster of state terrorism.
He said every other thing except the current experiment had become irrelevant in this situation.
Therefore there was no alternative before the Kashmiris except to support the vanguard of the movement honstly and courageously. He hoped that the pro India lobby in any garb there will now not be allowed to rule the roost. Experience and wisdom coupled with the circumstances will dictate terms of the uprising.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani out rightly rejected the internal autonomy proposal of both senior and junior Abdullah and termed it obsolete, saying the Kashmiris now no more needed old wine in new bottles. He regretted the cold shoulder attitude of the world community and said only Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch and some other Western human rights groups seriously censored India for its unabated oppression and abuses in Kashmir, while no country not even their Muslim brethren could voice their resentment against the inhuman situation created by the Indian authorities in Kashmir.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani criticized America for its” Hands off policy” on Kashmir, warning that that policy would not bring peace and prosperity to the Indo Pakistan Subcontinent. He said surprisingly that the same America which had sponsored and endorsed the Security resolutions on Kashmir in the last century, now was giving an old international dispute a bilateral curl. ”The Kashmiris will never barter away their slogan, nor withdraw on Indian terms; they will not accept bilateral bend or interpretation of the dispute or political and economic packages not reflecting the sentiments of the people, but will continue to stress upon the world leaders including America to fulfill their promises with the Kashmiris according to the Security Council resolutions, as they did in other cases of international character and dimension,” he remarked.
