No one gave ‘mandate’ to self proclaimed leaders to talk to Hurriyat: KPs
JAMMU, Apr 19: Kashmiri Pandits are up in arms against those community members who had met separatist Hurriyat leaders at Srinagar recently. Taking a serious exception to it, the leaders of various socio-religious organizations to Pandits said that the community had not given any mandate to any organisation or individual to talk with the separatists or agents of Pakistan.
Talking to reporters in a joint press conference organised by Panun Kashmir MK Kaul a social activist, Raj Nath Raina, president Magam Bangil Sabha, PL Dhar president TRT Nagrota and Sheela Handoo ex-Corporator said the community had not given any one mandate to talk to separatists on its behest. Kashmiri leaders are convinced that the types of Geelani, Mirwaiz and others like them have presided over their religious cleansing and genocide. They hold them guilty of committing hei-nous crimes against hum-anity in general and the Kashmiri Pandits in particular.
“It is unfortunate that some community members and representatives of some organizations met hardliner Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Shah Geelani and its moderate faction leader Maulvi Umar Farooq seeking their support for return of the community to Valley”, said MK Kaul. He while criticizing these leaders said that they had no mandate from community to talk with Hurriyat as this conglomerate is responsible for the miseries and sufferings of the community. Kashmiri Hindus consider them to be leaders of an extremely regressive movement which seeks to destroy all freedoms that humankind should enjoy universally for they are agents of a fascist movement aiming at imposing a hegemonic order on the people of Jammu and Kashmir worse than that of Hitler who imposed them in Germany in the last century. These leaders are responsible for the mass exodus of the community from Valley and in what capacity the community members met them, he said. “Instead of being apologetic for the same our leaders pleaded for the community’s return before them,” he said. Moreover, the leaders of these KP organizations who met Hurriyat did not disclose what they discussed with them inside and we apprehend that a hidden agenda on return of the community was discussed inside, he said, adding this was a game plan of some agencies to tarnish the image of the community.
“Why should our leaders talk to separatists whose hands are soaked in our blood” said Raj Nath Raina. He said the majority of Pandits are not ready to accept the package as nothing except a separate homeland will be acceptable to them. The leaders of various organisations met at PK office here and decided to mobilize community opinion against the same. Raina wanted to know what was the fault of Pandits who were hounded out from Valley at gun point. He made it clear that Pandits will not return till the conditions set by them are accepted. “We will return on our own terms and conditions and not on behest and mercy of separatists” he added.
“We will continue our fight against those forces who play with the cause of the community “said Sheela Handoo. She said that Apex Committee does not have proper representation of the community and demanded that the Board should have real representation of the community and no one should be thrust from the top.
The text of the declaration adopted in an emergency meeting held by the prominent citizens representing all the districts of the Valley and various socio-religious organizations of the Kashmiri displaced Hindus on 18th April 2012, at Panun Kashmir Office, Jammu to voice unanimously their condemnation of the meeting held by some self-proclaimed representatives of the displaced Kashmiri Hindu Community with the separatists leadership in Valley.
All of us have gathered here to convey in very strong and unambiguous terms our condemnation of the act of a group of Kashmiri Hindus having met Hurriyat Leaders in Kashmir valley recently. The group has brought shame to the entire community of Kashmiri Hindus. Their meeting with Hurriyat leaders has insulted the sacrifice of all those who have died at the hands of terrorists while upholding the honour, dignity of their self, community, society and the country at large. This act of the self-proclaimed representatives of the displaced community has brought disrepute to the glorious History of sacrifice for the Indian social and political values upheld by Kashmiri Hindus and their immense contribution to the Indian civilizational continuity.
Kashmiri Hindus are convinced that the types of Geelani, Mirwaiz and others like them have presided over their religious cleansing and genocide. They hold them guilty of having committed heinous crimes against humanity in general and kashmiri hindus in particular.Kashmiri Hindus consider them to be leaders of an extremely regressive movement which seeks to destroy all freedoms which human kind should enjoy universally for they are the agents of a theo-fascist movement aiming at imposing a hegemonic order on the people of Jammu and Kashmir worse than what Hitler imposed in Germany in the last century. Giving such leadership even a semblance of credibility is abhorrent to peace-loving and patriotic Kashmiri Hindus as it is to any upright peace-loving and freedom-loving human being. The reality of the types of persons who constituted the group that met the Hurriyat leaders recently is very well known to the entire community.For Kashmiri Hindus they are nothing more than self-seeking bounty hunters who are ready to work for anybody and everybody be it government agencies or the separatist network. The said meeting, we apprehend, seems to have taken place at the behest of subversive circuits operating in India whose objectives are similar to those of the circuits operated by Dr. Fai in America. Kashmiri Hindus have no doubt that the activities of persons like Sushoba Bharve in Jammu and Kashmir have only complemented the communal secessionist movement in the state.
The Kashmiri Hindus who met the Hurriyat leaders recently have abdicated their right to be recognized as a part of the displaced Hindus community in particular and patriotic Indians in general. We disown them and their activities. We want to state unambiguously that they don’t belong to us and they represent only themselves or their masters at whose behest they work.
