India staging dramas as diversionary tactics

Srinagar, October 02, 2016 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Gilani has said that India is creating war-like situation along the Line of Control to divert world’s attention from the Kashmir dispute. Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said that refusing to participate in SAARC forum, threatening the water blockade and isolating Pakistan at global level are the cunning mechanics of India to hoodwink the world community. He cautioned that lingering Kashmir dispute could ignite human disaster in South Asia.

The Illegally-detained APHC Secretary General, Shabbir Ahmad Shah in a statement urged UN and international community to intervene and settle the dispute to avoid any nuclear war between the two neighbourly countries over the Kashmir dispute. APHC leader Nayeem Ahmad Khan said that India first staged Uri and then surgical-strike drama to deflect the international attention from the ground situation of the occupied territory.

The Hurriyet forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement termed the Indian aggression a ploy to divert international attention from the atrocities being perpetrated by Indian armed forces on the people of Kashmir. The Jammu Kashmir and Liberation Front described the ongoing arrest spree and nocturnal raids as a clear sign of frustration of the Indian authorities.
