Srinagar: Terming the talks between India and Pakistan through back channels a mere eye wash, noted human rights activist Ghutam Nawlakha Monday stated that through these secret talks, India tries to convince Pakistan to accept Line of Control (LOC) as a permanent border and shun the demand of holding any referendum in Kashmir
Speaking at a seminar organized by State Human rights group, Voice of Victims here Navlakha said that corruption was the main part of Indias policy to muzzle the movement of Kashmir and keep Kashmiris economically dependent.
Without laying down sacrifices how you can get Azadi from India, So if you really want to pursue your goal for which you have laid down sacrifices you must resist and continue the freedom struggle, said Nawlakha while speaking in the seminar.
Every day you have to confront the heavy army covoys on your 10 to 20 feet wide roads that directly affects your day to day life. So the impacts of non-resolution of Kashmir issue if we would go in depth are horrifying. he said.
Terming the talks between India and Pakistan through back channels as mere eye wash, he said, This kind of talks of through back channels continue since past but nothing was achieved from them. So this time also dont expect anything from them.
Rubbishing main stream politicians for praising Atal Behari Vajpayee and Narendra Modi, he said that instead of praising them people of Jammu and Kashmir must intensify its movement on diplomatic level besides taking benefit from ongoing spat between India, America.
Senior journalist Zahir-ud-Din while slamming Kashmirs pro-freedom camp stated that Kashmirs society was united but its leadership was fragmented creating chaos among the people and the world community.
We had two Huriyats in the past and now the third one has emerged. The fragmented leadership is doing no good to people. We want to tell these people that we as common people are united but it is you are divided.
