Bandipora made garrison town ─ Farooq Rehmani
Islamabad Jul 28,2012: The Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has expressed grave concern over the provocative, aggressive and repressive measures of the army, and paratroopers in the district headquarter of Bandipora, looking not a scenic Wullar-lake city; but of a garrison town, in which thousands of highly equipped Indian army soldiers of the Rashtrayah Rifles (RR) ,the CRPF and police have been garrisoned following the custodial murder of Hilal Ahmad Dar, a local youth by the dreaded R.R. While condemning tyranny and mal treatment of the troops and police with the general public during the last four days, he asked whether such harsh measures would bring real and durable peace in the region.
He said under the given conditions the so called trade and travel CBMs have become futile and redundant, and the rhetoric of talks between the two Governments looks a show of peace.”
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani reminded the OIC Contact Group on Kashmir on their chartered responsibilities, and the UN of their mandatory role as the guarantor and protector of basic human rights and civil and political liberties, calling on them to intervene, as they do in such other situations of historical and humanitarian nature. “Since the forces of repression and occupation are working hand in glove, it becomes obligatory on UN and the OIC to initiate preventive measures for the safety of the kashmiris, lest it may become too late to stop cleansing of the kashmiris in their own State, as India’s so called secular leadership with the help of extremist elements is moving towards that direction’, he added.
At the same time, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani urged the Government of Pakistan to shoulder its political, diplomatic, and moral responsibilities; don’t keep mum on the India’s repression and denial of freedom to the people of the highly neglected conflict- zone of the world. He warned that by being silent on frequent military measures and developments; and intransigence of India in the matter of Kashmir, no one should expect that India’s proxy war along Durand Line will end.
He as well asked the Muslim Governments across the globe to discuss not only the problems of their own destabilizing waves, but sit together and focus upon– take remedial measures against the Muslim genocide moves in India, Palestine, Arakan Under Myanmer, India including Assam, Jammu and Kashmir and other parts and tirade against Islam. The stability of OIC lies in Islamic – solidarity and Islam, not in the continuation of decaying regimes, or borrowed power. Its intrinsic worth will ensure good and honourable relations with other nations of the world, he observed.
