Shabbir denounces registration of case against Aasiya

Srinagar, August 19, 2015 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, senior Hurriyet leader, Shabbir Ahmed Shah has condemned the puppet authorities for registering a case under sedition charges against the Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi, on the behest of Indian government. Shabbir Ahmed Shah in a statement issued in Srinagar said that it was not a crime to waive Pakistani flag in any part of the disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

“How can waiving Pakistani flag be a crime when the future of the disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir is yet to be decided. We want to make it clear that neither is Jammu and Kashmir an integral part of India nor is hoisting or waiving Pakistani flag here any crime. The Islamic Republic besides being a prime stakeholder of Kashmir dispute is our well-wisher nation and a strong advocate of our cause,” he maintained.

The senior Hurriyet leader said that whether hoisting Pakistani flag in any state of India was a crime or not, waiving it in Jammu and Kashmir was not at all unconstitutional. Such act symbolizes the love of the people of Kashmir towards Pakistan, he stated. Shabbir Ahmed Shah urged New Delhi to shun its irresponsible and prejudicial approach and accept the ground realities regarding the Kashmir dispute. He said that by waiving Pakistani flag, Kashmiris were reiterating their demand for freedom.

“Instead of resorting to registering of cases against leaders, India should prepare itself for holding referendum in Jammu and Kashmir so that the Kashmiris could decide their future. Both India and its local collaborators should understand that Pakistani flags are being waved in each and every house here. It would be better for them to register cases against the whole populace of Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.

The Hurriyet leader said that case against Aasiya Andrabi was nothing but frustration on part of India and its puppet administration in the territory. He added that such repressive and suppressive measures could not break the resolve of Kashmiri people.
