Srinagar: JKLF today said its leadership represent a people’s ideology and that they are not like those who on a phone call change ideologies and sympathies for lust of power, money and other benefits. The JKLF reaction came in response to statement of Anjuman-e-Sharia Shian in which it described JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik’s statement on university incident as irresponsible and devoid of political maturity. In a statement today, Gulzar Ahmad Pahalwan, district president JKLF Budgam, said, “JKLF and its leader Mohammad Yasin Malik are firmly and consistently striving for the independence of Jammu Kashmir and this organization or its leadership cannot be stopped from talking about its mission and struggle from any stage or forum.” He added that the statement of Anjuman in which they had claimed that it was only time restraint for which Malik was not able to deliver his speech at university programme is a bundle of lies. Gulzar said Anjuman, which was organising the function, had submitted 10 names of speakers to police and university authorities and the name of JKLF and Mohammad Yasin Malik was not figuring in the list. Also the organisers had given in writing that no resistance politics or political speech or talk will be delivered at the function. “Also the agony and anxiety on the faces of organisers as soon as Yasin Malik entered the hall and their meeting in the back stage revealed that something was wrong with them. Yasin Malik and his colleagues entered the hall at 11:10 AM and minutes after their arrival Anjuman member Ghulam Mohammad Nagoo came to JKLF leader Showkat ahmad Bakhshi and asked him to convince Yasin sahib for not talking about resistance movement in his speech. If Anjuman had assured authorities of these things why did they invite resistance leader like Yasin Malik,” the JKLF district president said. He added that now Anjuman, by propagating a false and bundle of lies in this regard, is actually trying to conceal truth. “Anjuman will get nothing out of these lies and falsehood. JKLF believes in one-dimensional politics. We do not practice two-dimensional politics like many others. JKLF does not believe in issuing press notes in favour of azadi and on the other hand casting votes in Indian elections. JKLF also does not believe in making money, bungalows, shopping malls purchasing cars worth crores out of resistance movement. We are the pioneers of this present movement and stand where we have been at the start of this movement,” Gulzar said. He alleged that it was Anjunman leader Agha Syed Hassan who played a pivotal role in breaking the united Hurriyat. “He declared Mirwaiz Umar sahib as traitor and joined Geelani sahib but after only few months repented and came back to Mirwaiz sahib. Both times it was a mere phone call and lust of benefits that made him take these u turns. People should know that it was these people who after taking oath on Quran in 1987, joined Muslim Mutihida Mahaz. The entire Jammu and Kashmir was backing MUF for Azadi but these people chose the other way and joined National Conference-Congress coalition. The fact of the matter is that these people right from 1995 have been taking part in Indian elections directly and indirectly and people like these have no moral ground to talk about those who are the pioneers of revolution and symbols of freedom for Kashmiris,” Gulzar said.
