SRINAGAR: The Hurriyet leadership has strongly rejected the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement on Kashmir. 

Gilani, commenting on the breaking of Narendra Modi’s silence so late on the human loss and dance of death throughout the territory in a statement in Srinagar ridiculed the Modi’s assertions, saying that the Indian Prime Minister was looking the Kashmir dispute through his fake rhetoric of development.

“Modi should be in know of the fact that we are economically much better than most of the Indian states. Had India not deprived us of our own resources we would have been able to feed many Indian states as well,” he added.

Blinding innocent kids and injuring thousands of youth, proves that Modi’ inner beast of 2002 Gujarat is still thriving in him even as Prime Minister of India, Gilani said.

Referring to the statement that Kashmiri boys should have laptops instead of stones in their hands, the ailing leader said, “Indian killer forces have made them blind forever. They will curse Modi and his country for rest of their lives.”

The Chairman of Hurriyet forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in his statement said what Kashmiris want is clear even literally and can be easily understood by those who want to understand it. The Mirwaiz said, “People are clearly stating what they want. India just has to stop its cacophony and listen with a view to understand, and not to deny.” He reiterated that Kashmir was a political dispute to be addressed in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of its people as guaranteed to them by the world community and ratified by India and Pakistan.

The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik in his statement termed the Modi’s assertions illogical, saying that describing the overwhelming pro-freedom population of Kashmir as some misled people is old tradition of Indian rulers.

The member of so-called Kashmir Assembly, Engineer Abdul Rasheed in a statement said Modi’s speech has rendered Kashmiris hopeless and it has no takers.

National Conference working President and former puppet Chief Minister Omar Abdullah asked Narendra Modi to understand that the present turmoil in Kashmir was not due to lack of development but unwillingness of India to address the Kashmir issue.

The Congress said that Modi should participate in a debate on Kashmir in the Parliament rather than making statement in public rallies.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing a rally in Madhya Pradesh on Monday had asked the people of Jammu and Kashmir abandon protests walk the path of development.
