Recommendations by Pak Parl panel ‘apologetic policy to appease India', says Geelani

Srinagar: Terming recommendations by the Pakistani Parliamentary Panel (PPP) as ‘unfair and unjustified’, Hurriyat hardliner Sayed Ali Geelani in a statement on Wednesday said that, “The recommendations of the Parliamentary Panel headed by member parliament Awais Ahmad Leghari depicts an apologetic policy and it cannot be named more than this that it is an attempt to appease India.”

Asserting that the groups busy in the freedom struggle of Kashmir have nothing to do with the terrorism, Mr. Geelani said that, “Kashmiri youths have not opted for the armed struggle just out of any amusement or fun but it is the rigid and stubborn policy of India with regard to the Kashmir issue.

“God forbid if government of Pakistan acts on these recommendations and take any action against the Kashmiri youth, it will be the follow-up of American policies which they experienced in Afghanistan,” he said.

However, the Hurriyat chief exuded hope that Pakistan will not turn its eyes away from the Kashmiris and will continue to support them on political, diplomatic and moral levels.

“Kashmir is a human, political and indigenous nature of issue and the people of this region are struggling for their birth and basic right that is right to self determination,” Geelani said.
