'Threat issued by Gen Rawat to people of valley reflects a tyrannical mindset': Mirwaiz

Srinagar, February 16, (Scoop News)-Reacting to the statement of Army chief, General Bipin Rawat, in which he called for dealing harshly with people protesting during operations against Kashmiri youth and treating them as anti-national, All Parties Hurriyat Conference leader, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, said the threat issued by the General to the people of valley is unfortunate and reflects a tyrannical mindset.

Mirwaiz said the army chief needs to ask the executive of this country as to why is the institution of army being used by them to crush a movement of people demanding their political right and why do people at the obvious risk to their lives gather ?

APHC leader said Gen Rawat should be in know of the fact that people of Kashmir were fighting since 1947 and India had left no stone unturned.

Mirwaiz said before labeling Kashmiris as anti-national, army chief should realize that the state was not fighting any nation or any political party.

APHC leader further said instead of issuing threats to break the will and resolve of the people of Kashmir, it would be prudent for the Indian Army chief to accept the ground realities in Kashmir where government forces open indiscriminate fire on unarmed youth and peaceful protestors.

He said instead of reining in security forces, people were being threatened to face the consequences of staging peaceful protests, which would deteriorate the already worse situation.

Mirwaiz said the Indian military and political leadership had no other option but to come to the grips of the reality that Kashmir issue cannot be dealt with military might or with threats of war but by involving all parties to Kashmir dispute in a meaningful and result-oriented dialogue process, which could also help end political uncertainty in entire South Asia.

Meanwhile, the APHC spokesman condemned the ruling class for imposing severe restrictions on the movement of the people.
