SRINAGAR, Nov 12 (SABAH): Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik has asked former chief minister and National Conference (NC) president Dr Farooq Abdullah to shun ‘political buffoonery’ and assume some seriousness.
“Farooq Abdullah has always played non-serious and selfish politics. Kashmiris never take his words and personality seriously,” Malik said in a statement, ridiculing the statement of Farooq Abdullah “against Azadi option.”
Terming the statement of Farooq Abdullah ‘absurd and non-serious’, Yasin Malik said, “To remain in news Farooq Abdullah always issues controversial statements like these but people of Jammu Kashmir are fully aware of his irresponsible character, his non-seriousness and the level to which he can stoop down for his selfish gains.”
The JKLF chairman said, “Farooq Abdullah, like his late father, has been doing politics in the name of freedom of Kashmir for a long time and it was he who in 1974 from Lal Chowk Srinagar floated the slogan of “Choen Desh Meon Desh Kashur Desh Kashur Desh” (Your nation, my nation is Kashmir) and even participated in pro-freedom rallies in Mirpur Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK). But afterwards these very people for their lust of power and for serving their own selfish benefits shunned the path of freedom, sacrificed the interests of Kashmiris and till date are with their full family enjoying the fruits of petty power and authority.”
Rejecting the idea of autonomy for Jammu & Kashmir, JKLF chairman said, “Kashmiris have not sacrificed thousands of lives for a so-called fragile, absurd and ridiculous autonomy under which a prime minster of time who luckily was Farooq Abdullah sahab’s own father was handcuffed by an ordinary police man and thrown into jail for 11 long years.”
Advising Farooq Abdullah to shun “his political joker-like approach and assume some seriousness,” JKLF chairman said, “Resistance against illegal Indian control will continue till the achievement of the desired goal.”
