Modi’s visit to IOK on Diwali is cultural aggression: Gilani

Oct 23rd, 2014 | Category: Kashmir News

In occupied Kashmir, the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has said that to celebrate Diwali in Muslim majority Jammu and Kashmir was nothing but cultural aggression on part of Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.

Syed Ali Gilani in a media interview in Srinagar deplored that New Delhi was playing politics on rehabilitation of flood victims in the occupied territory. “Modi’s stay in Kashmir on Diwali is nothing but an election stunt aimed to woo voters in the Valley. India wants to show the world that it is with flood-hit Kashmiris which is ridiculous,” he said, adding that Modi’s visit also showed the extremist mindset of Indian politicians.

Syed Ali Gilani said that at a time when India and its stooges in the territory should have worked on rehabilitation of flood-hit people, they were busy in election politics. “Their priority should have been to rehabilitate the flood-hit Kashmiris but they are playing their petty politics,” he deplored.

The veteran leader said that the package announced by Narendra Modi for the Kashmiri flood afferctees was nothing but mere eyewash. “We don’t demand packages but we should know that the money that is being distributed through relief packages is nothing but our tax money,” he added.

Syed Ali Gilani also castigated India for stopping the international aid from reaching the Kashmiris. He said that if Kashmir had its resources in its own hands, Kashmiri people would not require any package then. “We have huge water and other resources and Kashmiris don’t need any relief packages if the resources are managed by Kashmiris themselves,” he maintained.

The veteran leader also called for complete shutdown on October 27 to protest against the landing of Indian army in Jammu and Kashmir in 1947.
