International autonomy slogan trump card to cheat people: APHC


ISLAMABAD, April 25 (APP): International autonomy slogan trump card to cheat people: APHC


The All Parties Hurriyet Conference has reiterated its stand to continue the ongoing struggle for the right to self determination.


The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar while rejecting the internal autonomy mantra raised by National Conference Chief Farooq Abdullah as a possible solution to the Kashmir dispute said, "People of Kashmir are fighting for complete freedom from India since last seven decades and not for the rhetorical autonomy,reported Kashmir Media Service.


National Conference since its existence has been changing its slogans from autonomy to self determination at times, and using such slogans as trump card to deceive people of Kashmir.


"People of India, Pakistan and particularly that of Kashmir are paying heavy price for the uncertainty in the region which was created by Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah's handing over Kashmir to India. The discourse of Kashmir changed in 1938 when Sheikh Abdullah changed Muslim Conference into National Conference which was an act of treason with blood of martyrs of 13th July 1931," the spokesperson added.


He said that whenever NC has been in power they "advocate bombardment on Azad Kashmir and Pakistan. And in opposition, their love for Pakistan and autonomy is hallow sloganeering, so people must spare themselves of their deceitful politics."


Meanwhile, a meeting of Tehreek-e-Hurriyet was held in Srinagar. The meeting was addressed by Pir Saifullah, Bashir Ahmad Farooqi, Raja Merajuddin and Omar Adil Dar. The speakers on the occasion said that India its stooges were using one after another tactics to suppress the Kashmiris' freedom movement. However, they vowed to continue the liberation movement against all odds.
