‘Like other Governors, Satya Pal can’t change ground reality in Kashmir’
‘Threats, coercion, pacification, propaganda won’t work’
Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising of Syed Ali Geelani Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik said that the ‘statements emanating from his masters, viceroy the Governor Satyapal Malik reflects New Delhi’s arrogance and high handedness with regard to J&K which it treats as its colony, under occupation through its repressive military control’.
In a statement, JRL said that since New Delhi thrust their new deputy to rule over killings and repression has further worsened with more than 12 civilians and 25 armed youth killed so far in October, while dozens of houses have been blasted and scores of youth and activists have been sent to jails, slapped with PSAs.
They said that he is here on a mission from New Delhi to give the stern message to the people of Kashmir that the ruling dispensation in New Delhi is not interested in resolving the Kashmir dispute, rather does not acknowledge it and instead will maintain the status quo on Kashmir and not hesitate from further turning up the heat on people if they do not give up their struggle of self determination.
“His utterances are part of GOI’s consistent mischief of creating a false narrative on Kashmir in order to undermine its disputed nature and hence mislead people in India and the world. Through disparate analogies of oft repeated Tamilian failure in Srilanka, to open and veiled threats of ‘no bouquets for bullets’ to pacification of ‘multiplexes and IPLs’ Mr Malik wants to disenchant people from their just struggle while intimidating them,” the JRL said.
JRL reiterated the call for complete protest shutdown tomorrow October 27 as “occupation day”.
JRL said the strike will also be observed to pay homage to and remember the eight young armed youth martyred by Indian forces across the valley.
