New Delhi based news channels mislead people about Kashmir: Hurriyat (G)


Hurriyat Conference (G) led by Syed Ali Geelani today termed the electronic media houses of India as, what he called, “part of the military operation which is going on in Jammu and Kashmir.

In a statement issued here, the party said that the Delhi based news channels are running a propaganda to defame the just and genuine struggle of Kashmiris and are showing wrong picture of Kashmir to the Indian people.

The statement added that the local reporters working for these channels in Srinagar should perform their professional duties in an honest way. “We understand their compulsions and limitations and we also know that they have no say in the editorial policies of these channels and they can’t change that thinking,” the statement read.

Ayaz Akbar, party’s spokesperson, said that Hurriyat doesn’t want to trouble these local reporters working for these channels but we want that they should aware the editors of these channels about the ground realities of Jammu and Kashmir.

“They should make them understand that the issues over which they make hue and cry and try to misled the general public of India are actually no issues in Jammu and Kashmir and there is nothing new in these issues. This process is going on in Jammu and Kashmir from last 68 years and whether it is national day of Pakistan or the cricket match of Pakistan, every child of Kashmir express his happiness over their every win,” Akbar was quoted saying.

The spokesperson also added that “if the waving of Pakistan flag is the case of waging war against India then India has to file charges against the millions of Kashmiri people.

The party is holding a seminar titled “Policies of RSS and our responsibilities” on 29 April 2015. It said that the seminar is “aimed to highlight the dangerous agenda of this fascist party and will be conducted under the chair of Hurriyat Chairman Syed Ali Geelani and the prominent leaders, intellectuals, writers and lawyers will express their point of view in the scheduled seminar.”
