Senior Akali Dal leader from Punjab Simranjit Singh Mann alleged that Kashmiris have been enslaved by India and New Delhi was doing injustice with both the communities. “There is injustice with Kashmiris people. India occupied Kashmir in 1947 at the time of partition. People of Kashmirs were not willing to join India. Kashmirs have been made slaves by India.
The two time Member of Parliament from Taran Tarn said that according to UN Resolutions India had promised a plebiscite in Kashmir. “But they are not fulfilling their promise. Situation in Kashmir will not improve till Kashmirs are given their rights,” he said.
Lashing out at mainstream politicians of J&K he said, “Be it Dr Farooq Abdullah, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed or Omar Abdullah they have not been able to do justice with people. They accept troops are violating human rights and order for enquiries. But nothing has come out of these enquiries.”
Claiming that there was military rule in J&K and Chief Minister has no powers, he said, “Article 370 which gives special status to J&K has been eroded. New Delhi has imposed its own laws in Kashmir. The job of army is on borders but they have kept them guarding Amarnath yatra.”
He claimed that Gujarat Chief Minister Narednra Modi was working on Hinduvta agenda. “BJP and Congress are two sides of a same coin and minorities are neither safe in BJP rule nor in Congress rule.”
Reacting to Janta Dal leader Subramaniyam Swamy’s recent statement on minorities, he said, “Minorities in India feel unsafe. We all should unite and fight against it.”
