Ostracise New Delhi’s ‘Local Collaborators’: Hurriyat


Srinagar: The joint resistance leadership on Wednesday asked masses to “ostracize” the “local collaborators” at social as well at public levels.

“The brazenness and starkness of India’s aggressive colonial approach towards the people of Kashmir becomes more and more evident by the day. The use of such excessive brute force on the people, in the past 19 days, once again reinforces (fact) that GoI sees the people of Kashmir as their subjects whose self-assertion and resistance to the colonial rule has to be suppressed with an iron hand,” a statement issued by Hurriyat Conference (M) on behalf of the joint resistance leadership said this evening.

“For India’s local collaborators facilitating the oppression of their own people, their moment of reckoning and introspection, is over. Last week an appeal was made to whatever integrity is left in them, that since they could not stop loss of human life and mass killing of the people, they are given a chance to come back and for once support the truth,” the statement said.

“But instead, they declared the death of their conscience, the bankruptcy of their values. The lust for chair is so overwhelming in them is in their predecessors, that not even the butchery of more than 50 young boys and girls, mostly teenagers and the blinding of over 150 people many among them little children is enough to shake them up,” the statement said, “The pain and agony of thousands of those maimed and injured, falls on their deaf ears. They have chosen to become deaf, dumb and blind to the suffering and torture of their people.  In fact, watching the carnage as mute spectators they give their tacit support to it. They have simply stopped being human.”

The joint statement further said, “and when they are out of “power’, they degrade further, exploiting the sacrifices of freedom seeking people for furthering their political ambition of assuming ‘power’.”

“As such, being the collaborators and loyalist abettors of ‘Govt of India’ and its subversive agencies they are equal partners in the crime against people of Kashmir.

Since 1947, these collaborators have provided a local face to India’s authoritarian rule which India exploits internationally to undermine our freedom struggle.

Since they claim to “represent people” whom they have gravely betrayed, it is time that people hold them accountable and answerable and pressurize them to vacate,” the statement added, “People shall ostracize them and boycott them at all levels, socially and publically. People shall refuse to interact with them at community and public places. They shall no longer be allowed to exploit the people and the sacred freedom struggle.”
