SRINAGAR, May 16 (SABAH): Reacting to the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s statement that people have to choose between ISIS and Kashmiriyat, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (G) has said, “People have opted for freedom and rejected slavery.” “Not ISIS or Kashmiriyat, instead it is freedom or slavery and people have once for all made their mind and for the past 70 years they are pursuing their cherished goal,” the Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar, said in a statement.
“People of different faiths are living in complete harmony and there is no threat to mutual brotherhood and accord between the followers of different religions. However, government forces under well thought out plan are carrying genocide in the state,” he said.
“Mehbooba’s statement is a deliberate attempt to cover up wrongdoing and atrocities inflicted by the government forces. The rulers are desperate to discredit and malign ongoing Kashmir struggle and as such giving unnecessary hype to ISIS threat. The Muslims despite in majority in the state have always respected and remained generous towards minority communities,” the spokesman said,
