Geelani warns Pakistan on ‘secret Kashmir deal’

SRINAGAR: Castigating the recent statement of Pakistan’s former Foreign Secretary Shehryar Khan that India and Pakistan were closer over the resolution of Kashmir dispute, Chairman Huriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani Thursday stated that the people of Kashmir have not given the mandate to any one for signing ‘secret pact’ on Kashmir.

Geelani stated that if Pakistan evolves any settlement of Kashmir with India without taking the people of Kashmir on board, the leadership here will oppose the same with tooth and nail.

Geelani maintained that the former Pakistan’s General Parvez Musharaf floated the four point formula and termed the same as the resolution of Kashmir but the same proved to be a disaster and a move for the division of Kashmir. “I from the very first day was against the four point formula and those leaders who used to praise the same must understand that this formula is aimed at the division of Kashmir.”

Geelani stated further that the people of Kashmir have already rejected the four point formula and that the present dispensation of Pakistan must understand that the final solution of Kashmir lies in fulfilling the aspirations of its people . “We consider Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit and Baltistan as one entity and will not allow any establishment to divide our land.”

“We have not given mandate to anyone so that they could enter into the secret deal on Kashmir. The people here have rendered immense sacrifices and no one will ever be allowed to sabotage the same,” said.

Geelani said that discussions aimed at creating public opinion in favour of such deals under the garb of ‘intellectual’ discourse must not be encouraged.”It creates chaos and the world gets confused about goals of Kashmiris.
