Srinagar: Nobody can silence or stop us from speaking on our resistance movement. Mirwaiz Hurriyat is propagating “Hussainiyat” under the patronage of tyrants and oppressors and this can be termed hypocrisy,” said Mohammad Yasin Malik, the chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF). With regard to an anniversary programme of Imam Khumainee organised by Anjuman Shar-i-Shia, in a statement issued here today, Malik said that Hurriyat Conference (Mirwaiz) claims to represent people and resistance movement ‘but the bitter truth is that these people have achieved big houses, expensive vehicles and other benefits in the name of movement but are shying away to even speak on it.’ “This forum (Hurriyat (M) is simultaneously trying to run the movement and safeguard Indian interests at the same time. These people in the garb of resistance accumulate money and build shopping malls and get those inaugurated by Indian politicians and rulers. How can people like these claim to be true Hussainis and followers of Imam Khomeni,” Malik has said. The JKLF chairman has observed that until now, he had maintained silence on these issues in the larger interests of the ‘resistance movement’ but today he has been compelled to come out in public by these people. Malik said that as a national party of Kashmiris, JKLF has every time propagated and safeguarded the unity among Shia and Sunni brothers. “People of Jammu Kashmir know fully that JKLF has many a times even jumped into fire and safeguarded the Shia-Sunni unity,” he said. Giving the background of his frank disclosure, Malik has said that some days before Anjuman Shar-i-Shian, its member Ghulam Mohammad Nagoo had invited him to the programme. “After seeing the name of Kashmir University in the invitation card I enquired from Nagoo whether I will be allowed to speak on resistance and movement. Nagoo replied in affirmative. Today after I along with my colleagues reached Kashmir Universality, Nagoo came to JKLF leader Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi and asked him to convince me not to talk about movement during my speech as university authorities had asked them so.” Malik said that Nagoo requested that it was important as university may deny permission to them next year. “On the occasion representatives of Jamat-i-Islami, Muslim Conference chairman Prof Abdul Gani Bhat, Syed Hassan Budgami, Moulana Abbas Ansari, representative of Mufti Bashir ud Din, Moulana Showkat Keng, Salim Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq addressed the gathering but I was denied a chance to address the gathering.” The JKLF chairman said that visibly Hurriyat (M) leadership especially Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Syed Hassan Budgami,Salim Geealni and Nagoo who were deliberating on the subject at the stage in front of people even during the conference, took this decision of keeping him away from delivering a speech on the occasion ‘just to please the rulers and authorities of university’. Malik said that it is ironical that APHC (M) did this during a program to remember Imam Khomeni (RAH), who taught us to fight against tyranny, oppression and falsehood. “Today these so called resistance leaders have forgotten the fact that Imam Khomeni (RAH) was the person whose influence and revolution touched the soul of Kashmiris and even on the streets of Kashmir people chanted slogans like “Iran se Khabar Aayee Shia Sunni Bhayee Bhayee”. It was during Imam’s time that Indian foreign minister arrived at Tehran airport, was not allowed to land in Iran citing the human rights abuses in Kashmir. And today people who organised a meeting in his remembrance stood with the tyrants and oppressors and have proved that they while preaching Hussainiyat are actually with oppressors and oppression.” “Addressing the university authorities, Yasin Malik said that they must bear in mind that he represents the sentiments and sacrifices of Kashmiri nation and it is not possible for anyone to stop him from speaking on the issue of Azadi,” the statement issued by JKLF reads. Malik said that he has addressed students and authorities of Jawahar Lal University, Delhi University, Mumbai University and many universities in Pakistan, USA and UK. “But today Kashmiri University has been declared a no go area for resistance leaders and this university, it’s vice chancellor and many others act as humble Congress workers and only facilitate meetings of Rahul Gandhi. Yasin Malik said that Kashmiris cannot remain mere spectators over this and are ready to face this challenge of oppressors too.”
