SRINAGAR: Terming the statement of PDP president Mehbooba Mufti that accord with India was a right decision of late Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah, Hurriyat (G) Friday said that the decision had only benefitted the Sheikh and Mufti families so far while as this accord had brought misery and destruction to the Kashmiri people.
Terming the statement as baseless and contrary to the ground realities Hurriyat called accession an unnatural accord which according to it had not only consumed lakhs of innocent lives but was the only reason for the political uncertainty and instability prevailing in Jammu & Kashmir for last 7 decades.
The statement said that accession with India in 1947 was the work of an individual initiated against the wishes and aspirations of the Kashmiri people and this decision stands rejected by the majority of people even today in 2016.
The people of Kashmir had neither given mandate to late Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah to accord with India nor does have Mehbooba Mufti got this permission to validate this forced and illegal accord.
It further said that besides Sheikh and Mufti families, the number of traitors in Kashmir can be counted on finger tips who for the chair and other meager benefits are advocating the military occupation of India in Kashmir and are heaping false praises over the democracy and pluralism of India which is nowhere visible on the ground.
This could be their compulsion to praise their masters otherwise they could not survive without their support, the statement said.
