Srinagar August 09, 2018 (KNO) : All Parties Hurriyat Conference reiterating its pledge and commitment for the Right to Self-Determination out rightly rejected the views put forward by the National Conference working president Umar Abdullah that the exemplary protest and civil curfew observed on 5th and 6th August against any proposed tinkering of Article 35-A is a tacit support for a resolution of Kashmir issue within the constitution of India. Hurriyat Conference termed the misallege and political whims of Umar Abdullah yet another cruel joke with the history of Kashmir stained by his predecessors since 1947.

Article 370 and 35-A etc have remained a tool of exploitation in the hands of all the pro-Indian political parties who have been instrumental in abrogating these constitutional barriers to change the state subject law’s and demography of the state, said Hurriyat. Hurriyat Conference clarifying its stand for the right to self-determination has time and again rejected any solution within the Indian constitution. The Hurriyat made a fervent appeal to the freedom loving people to remain vigilant against the ill designed double speak of all the pro-Indian political parties for whom the recent civil curfew and strong protest has served as an eye opener.

The Hurriyat Conference, for the sake of a simple argument, likes to pose a series of questions to all such pro-Indian political parties regarding the fulfillment of their allegiance to the constitution of Jammu and Kashmir which clearly lays down to have a president a prime minister, chief justice, higher officials and bureaucracy, all from the permanent residents of the state. The same parties may be asked about the present state of bureaucracy, judiciary and police department where the non-resident officials have outnumbered the locals.

The Hurriyat may ask such pro-Indian parties who are responsible for opening the flood gates of non-residents to occupy such key posts in the State? Hurriyat Conference takes its pledge to carry the movement for right to self-determination to its logical conclusion.

This is our clear stand whereas all the pro-Indian parties especially National Conference played key role to damage the Muslim majority character of the state and in abrogating the state subject law. Hurriyat lauded the commitment of the freedom loving people as displayed on 5th and 6th August and also prayed to keep a constant vigil on the dubious role played by all the pro-Indian politicians by shedding crocodile tears on the proposed abrogation or tinkering of Article 35-A.

Hurriyat demanded immediate intervention of United Nations Secretary General by using its good office to stop overt and covert efforts by India to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir to its favour. Hurriyat also appealed for an early resolution of Kashmir dispute as per the wishes of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
