India heading to surrender to Pakistan in IHK: Advani

September 15, 2010

“There is talk of a ‘political solution’ to the Kashmir issue. Instead of giving a fitting reply to the secessionists, the government has been demonising the security forces. There is continuing talk of diluting the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), and withdrawal of the forces! This is nothing but a surrender before Islamabad’s strategy of breaking India’s post-1947 unity,” Advani said He added that it was exactly what the military rulers of Pakistan had been “dreaming of ever since their defeat in Bangladesh War of Liberation in 1971”

NEW DELHI: Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party veteran Lal Krishna Advani expressed concern on Tuesday over what he termed India’s impending surrender to Pakistan’s proxy war in Indian-held Kashmir”, adding, “Each passing day strengthens our apprehension that the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government is about to capitulate before Pakistan-supported secessionists.” “I would like to warn the UPA government that if they decide to bow before the secessionists’ designs in IHK, the country will not pardon them… in the name of autonomy we cannot allow the process of Kashmir’s integration to be reversed,” he said in his valedictory address at a two-day training course attended by 116 party spokespersons from 24 Indian states.

“There is talk of a ‘political solution’ to the Kashmir issue. Instead of giving a fitting reply to the secessionists, the government has been demonising the security forces. There is continuing talk of diluting the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), and withdrawal of the forces! This is nothing but a surrender before Islamabad’s strategy of breaking India’s post-1947 unity,” Advani said He added that it was exactly what the military rulers of Pakistan had been “dreaming of ever since their defeat in Bangladesh War of Liberation in 1971”.

adding, “the situation in IHK was indeed alarming.” “There is no government worth to name in Jammu and Kashmir. It has completely collapsed, ceding the ground to secessionists. The mess in Kashmir is not the making of only the government in Srinagar. In New Delhi, the UPA government is totally clueless and spineless,” Advani added. “There is talk of granting ‘maximum autonomy’ to Kashmir. Decoded, it means giving it its pre-1953 status. Far from repealing Article 370, the UPA government looks all set to repeal years and decades of our collective gains in Kashmir, all because of its lack of will, vision, commitment and competence,” Advani said. He went on to remind the Indian prime minister and Congress leader Sonia Gandhi what former Indian prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru said to parliament on November 27, 1963, that Article 370, which granted special status to IHK was “ a purely temporary provision”. iftikhar gilani
