Srinagar – A meeting of MEJAF was held today on 13-06-2013 at Srinagar under the Chairmanship of Dr Nisar ul Hassan wherein it was said that Rahul Gandhis visit to Kashmir and bringing umeed to Kashmirs is an eye wash and Camouflage of the wrongdoings of his partymen in the state. Rahul is coming at a time when whole nation is up in arms against the conspiracy of fake drugs which has killed innocent children and adults. People of Kashmir are dejected, disgusted, cheated and are in a sense of defeat because of inaction against murderers. We informed congress high command about the involvement of her minister but instead of action, the culprits are shielded and the matter is hushed up thus giving a feeling that it is a state backed phenomenon. This has shattered and added salt to the wounds of Kashmiris.
Chief Minister of state is not moved at all and he gives clean chit to the minister and others thus caring more for his political allies to safeguard his chair rather than people of Kashmir.
Govenor N N Vohra has joined the chorus of politicians by maintaining silence on fake drug issue. Saying peace and prosperity in Kashmir will come by sorting out careers of youth is a cover up, he must know that the issue is bigger than our lives not to talk of careers
The Political Parties are busy in taking out rallies and lobbying for power and have maintained criminal silence on the fake drug issue which proves that they are power hungry and are not bothered for people. PDP calls for action against Farooq Abdullah as he came in defence for BCCI chief but is it not a double standard by remaining silent on Sham Lal Sharma as he is a possible future ally.
Mr Saif-ud-din Soz has gone one step ahead by sharing the Dias with Sham lal Sharma at Ganderbal, projecting him as a hero and hurting the sentiments of naive Kashmiris. Soz must know that schemes and economic packages will not heal the wounds of Kashmiris.
Govt of India has step motherly approach towards Kashmiris as if the ministers have a licence for wrongdoings and instead of punishment they are garlanded. If two Union Ministers, Mr Bansal and Mr Ashwani were forced to step down for mere corruption charges, why not in Kashmir. Mothers who have lost their loved ones because of fake drugs want answers from Govt. People of Kashmir should give buffeting reply to politicians for maintaining criminal silence. How do these politicians face the nation by shielding killers, we fail to understand.
Rahul Gandhi cannot win hearts of people by mere words, actions speak louder than words. He cannot bargain deaths for money. Political disempowerment cannot be substituted by economic empowerment. If he wants to give some solace to Kashmiris, sack the minister and other officials involved in this dastardly act.
Dr Nisar urged people of Kashmir to strike the doors of their conscience and remain steadfast in this sacrosanct mission. People of Kashmir should rise above personal differences, ideologies, egos and stand united at this critical juncture to take this battle to a logical conclusion.
Kashmirs have to understand that they owe a debt to this nation and the only way to pay this debt is by continuing their agitation against this conspiracy and prove that they are true sons of this soil. Youth of the valley in particular must understand that fake drug scam is a grave crime against the collective conscience of state. They have an obligation towards their nation. They must come up to the expectations of people by mounting pressure on state to act against perpetrators. People of valley should boycott the political rallies if they have some semblance of conscience left and instead should hold them accountable for their wrongdoings and killings of innocent people.
Dr Nisar said people have reposed a trust in us and we wont betray their trust at any cost. We will continue our agitation against this menace till our last breath. We will not faulter, tire or succumb till culprits are punished.
