India Adopted Multipronged Strategy to Crush Movement: JRL

Srinagar, November 13 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that government of India has adopted as part of ploy a multipronged strategy to break the resolve of the people and crush the movement.
According to media sources, the leadership in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, expressed deep resentment over the statement of Mehbooba Mufti that mocks at Kashmiri people by calling them agitators first and beggars later.
Following is the complete text of the statement:
“Joint Resistance Leadership of Syed Ali Gelani Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik expressed deep resentment and condemnation at the statement of Mehbooba Mufti and her coterie mocking at and insulting Kashmiri people by calling them agitators first and beggars later . JRl said that the love for chair has completely blinded her and her ilk of opportunists to see what havoc they have wrecked upon the people of Kashmir since their alliance with theBJP . Each day a new hell is let loose on the people through the various agencies of occupation by resorting to extreme measures of repression that she presides over, to break the will and determination of the people for demanding the just resolution of internationally recognised Kashmir dispute as per peoples will and aspirations.
JRL said it is the integrity and tremendous resilience of the Kashmiri people that despite being no match for India in terms of population and resources it is giving such a stiff resistance to occupation to achieve its fundamental political rights as a nation . JRl said that such kind of exemplary courage and tremendous sacrifices can only be offered by a morally and ethically conscientious people who are struggling for achieving the fundamental human principle of freedom and right to choose. But exploiters and opportunists cannot understand such things. JRL said that since 1947 due to the constant compromises for purely vested interests and ambitions of chair & it’s allurements that these people, who are friends of none -not even India whose interests they represent in Kashmir, people of Kashmir are in the grip of occupation which they help consolidate . Had the interest of the Kashmiri nation political economic or ethnic ever been dear to them they would have stood their ground for safeguarding it and not kept compromising on it one after the other for staying in power . The situation has come to such a pass today due to their repeated betrayals for the chair that even the basis on which their opportunistic patrons comprised the future of the nation and got some constitutional guarantees article like 370 and 35A is on the verge of getting scraped for complete integration with India. JRL said that as part of the ploy to break the resolve of the people and crush the movement a multipronged strategy of based on use of extreme force and coercion was adopted by GOI particularly after entering into a power alliance with the pdp. The same PDP whose patron when he was home minister of India imposed AFSPA in J&K. All segments of society were targeted. While people were killed with impunity ,pellet guns were brought to blind them and inflict physical and psychological scars . Thousands of people especially youth including children and elderly labelled as stone pelleters incarcerated and tortured. Propaganda as a war weapon vigorously promoted against people while leadership persecuted and harassed through NIA and other agencies leading to illegal detention of some in jails. CASO launched to persecute people in villages especially as a witch hunt against the youth.
On the other hand a false binary between tourism and terrorism was created to target those associated with trade and tourism in order to break the back of both these industries. Travel agents throughout India were threatened with consequences by RSS that no tourists should be send to Kashmir , while GST laws that ended Kashmir’s fiscal autonomy in total violation of article 370 ,implemented and the return of our power projects outrightly rejected.To further dent the local trading market and create a fear psychosis among the people shameless act of braid chopping was undertaken and given the name of “hysteria “. Jrl said instead of feeling ashamed that not even one culprit was brought to book for attacking the dignity of our women and traumatising them, Mehbooba Mufti is justifying the act causally as something that happens elsewhere ! JRL said that people of Kashmir bore the brunt of all these repressive measures with such bravery and resilience that GOI was compelled to relook at its policy on Kashmir. No segments of society succumbed to this tremendous pressure including our traders and business community despite the fact that they were severely affected by this police of revenge and punishment to which the local quislings were willing partners or mute spectators. JRL said that people of Kashmir do not need the largess of GOI to survive as Mehbooba Mufti suggests. Once we are our own masters our resources both human and natural are enough to make us prosper. JRL asked all segments of society including traders and the business community to be wary of these collaborators and not to give them any opportunity to exploit or mock at their plight and expect no help from them as has been proved time and again.” KASHMIR VOICE
