Paying rich tributes to the people of Beerwah for their spirit of freedom and sacrifices, Mirwaiz in his presidential address said that our nation is engaged in the freedom struggle for the past many decades. He said the Indian establishment was using various oppressive means to suppress our freedom struggle.
He said despite using every means to coerce and suppress people by unleashing atrocities, in last 50 years, the freedom loving people of Kashmir have defeated such designs and have even forcefully raised their political aspirations.
The government has virtually banned freedom of expression, usurped political rights and imposed restrictions on our religious activities which aptly reflects the real face of Indian democracy in Kashmir, he alleged.
While criticizing the government of India, Mirwaiz said, This government was engaged on projecting its fanciful achievements through advertisements rather than addressing the crucial issues. Due to the intransigent attitude of Indian government, the situation in the sub continent instead of improving was turning tense. The lingering Kashmir dispute is like a volcano in the region, adding, by pushing this issue to backburner, stability, peace and prosperity of the region would remain an elusive dream.
