Oct 27th, 2014 | Category: Kashmir News

In occupied Kashmir, the veteran Hurriyet leader, continuing the relief distribution works, today, distributed Rs 10,000 cheque and a relief kit each to the 50 most deserving families of Pulwama and Islamabad districts who have lost their houses during the recent floods.

The relief distribution function held at the head office Central Relief Committee Hyderpora, was attended by many central officials including chairman Central Relief Committee Peer Saifullah, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Raja Mehraj-ud-din, Ayaz Akbar, Dr. G. M Ganai, Mir Hafizullah, Shakeel Ahmad Butt and Abdul Hameed Magray.

Addressing the flood-affected people, Syed Ali Gilani said: “The recent floods had broken us but we should not lose hope with Almighty Allah. He is all powerful and only He can help us to come out of this situation.’

Terming the relief package announced by the Prime Minister of India for the flood-hit people of Kashmir as unmentionable, he said that the announced amount was not even equal to the two per cent of the loss caused by the floods. It is a cruel joke with the Kashmiries, he deplored.

He said that the Indians treat Kashmiris as their enemies and inferior people. To deceive the world, the Prime Minister of India announced to spend his time with the flood-affected people of Kashmir but actually he had come here to encourage the occupying forces of India who are deployed at Siachen border, he maintained.

The veteran leader termed the announcement of election drama as unexpected and said that the election drama held in Kashmir was in no way any alternative to the plebiscites and the election in the presence of 7.5 lakh occupied forces was only a military operation.

“We are not principally against the democracy but we have been promised at national as well as international levels that we will be given a chance to decide our future through holding plebiscites in Jammu & Kashmir. We want that those promises should be fulfilled and until it is not done, our struggle will remain continue”, he vowed.
