‘NC Co-Author Of Afzal Guru’s Execution’
Srinagar, Feb 14: Peoples’ Conference Thursday expressed grave concern over, what is called, the continued state of virtual siege in Kashmir.
“The collective operational detention of seven million Kashmiris is inhumane and barbaric,” said a PC spokesman. “National Conference’s rhetoric defies the role it has chosen to play in the history of Kashmir. It is extremely ironic that Dr Mustafa Kamal has the audacity to call others double agents while our history is a witness to the duality of purpose and Machiavellian politics of his own party. Dr Kamal would be well advised to read his history well and remember that Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah was one of the first sloganeers of secessionism in Kashmir and in fact it was Sheikh Abdullah who started the culture of receiving stipends from Pakistan in the 1940s, even post 1947. NC has never hesitated from bartering the lives and the fate of Kashmiri people for attaining self-seeking power and that trend continue to this day.”
He said, “The policy of ambiguity and ambivalence adopted by NC by having countless faces and countless voices to say contradictory things is juvenile and stands exposed for the umpteenth time in our history.” “By being a willing co-author of Afzal Guru’s hanging, NC has yet again demonstrated its enthusiastic willingness to stoop to the lowest levels of indignity and treachery to safeguard its own political interests at any cost. Dr. Farooq Abdullah, as the patron of NC and its minister in the Union Cabinet has termed Guru’s hanging as a closed chapter, while his son and the CM of J&K is speaking a different language in Kashmir,” he said.
He said that NC, being a part of the UPA and being at the helm of affairs in the State, is a “co-author and accomplice in the political decision of hanging Afzal Guru.” The spokesman asked for curfew to be lifted from Kashmir without any further delay. He also asked for Afzal Guru’s body to be handed over to his family for his last rites and burial in Kashmir. The spokesman also lashed out at the State Government for an unofficial and “obnoxious gag” on media in the State.
