Srinagar: Commenting over the Crimeas freedom from Ukraine and the statements of pro-freedom groups relating the same with Kashmir issue, state Congress chief Saif-ud-din soz Thursday stated that Crimeas freedom will never help Kashmirs separatists.
I can tell you that Crimeas is a different situation and the same is never going to help Kashmirs separatist leaders, Soz told KNS over phone.
The state Congress chief observed further that there is nothing new in the series of statements being issued by the separatists over Crimeas freedom here and that the leaders every time have been taking advantage from the International situations. They find it conducive to their demands. Never have they been benefitted from such hypothetically favorable situations, Soz maintained.
Pertinently, several separatist parties including Mirwaiz Umar Farooq welcomed Crimeas freedom from Ukraine-stating, New Delhi must learn a lesson from Crimea and shun its stubborn approach and allow the people of Kashmir to decide their fate. We should be given our birth right to choose our future the way Crimea did.
Huriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani had stated that it has proven that no region of the world can forcibly be kept against the will of its people by any other country for long and the choice and will of the people cant be changed by force.
