Srinagar: Kashmiri leader Shabir Choudhry has accused Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front chief Yasin Malik of being a “habitual liar” who is misleading Pakistan’s memogate enquiry commission. “I strongly feel that the enquiry will not be complete without hearing my version of the events, especially when my name is mentioned in the Memogate Commission enquiry and a person who is habitual liar and has come forward to do someone’s bidding and mislead the commission with his lies,” Dr Choudhry said in a letter to the judicial commission probing the memogate scandal, seeking to appear before it to tell his side of the story. Dr Choudhry said, Mansoor Ijaz might have lied about other issues regarding Memogate, but as far as Delhi Kashmir Conference is concerned, whatever he has said is true. “It is Yasin Malik who is telling lies. Apart form me there were many other Kashmiri leaders present in that Kashmir Conference and I solemnly and sincerely confirm that Mansoor Ijaz did not use foul language for the people of Kashmir,” he said in a separate interview to a Pakistani newspaper. “Mansoor Ijas’s assertion and straight talk upset Yasin Malik and some other people from Kashmir. Some of them went to attack him. I ran out from the audience to protect Mansoor Ijaz. At no time Mr Yasin Malik threw his shoe at Mansoor Ijaz,” said Dr Choudhry. “Even if this claim of throwing shoe is true, what does it speak of Mr Yasin Malik, who is presented by a powerful lobby as a leader? This street boy attitude speaks volumes about his character and personality. It shows he is intolerant and not a suitable person to be engaged in a process of dialogue. Civilised people and, especially, sensible leaders listen to views of other people, put forward their view point logically and do not throw shoes at others or intimidate and harass opponents,”, he told the News daily.
