Gilani urges complete boycott of Indian elections on Islamabad seat » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, April 21 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani has called for a complete boycott of sham Indian elections and shutdown in poll-bound areas of Islamabad constituency on Tuesday (April 23).

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said, “The participation in elections amounts to betrayal of the sacred blood of martyrs and disrespect towards those who have been deprived of their belongings, lost eyesight and those who were ruthlessly killed, arrested, economically strangulated, caged, enforced demographic changes through judicial onslaught just to cement the illegal forced occupation.”

He asked people to stand united in defeating the nefarious designs of the oppressor and completely boycott the elections as they did in Srinagar, which will have very positive and encouraging effect on the ongoing movement, “as Indian imperialistic mindset is portraying these elections as a substitute to our right to self-determination and always tries to hoodwink the Indian people & international community.”

The APHC Chairman further said those who participate in elections and seek votes from people have an unending lust of power and wealth, which increases with each passing day. “They are nothing, but the worst enemies of our nation as they act as the collaborators of the oppressor just for their personnel gains. It is their lust for power and follies sponsored by these corroborators that justifies the enforced occupation,” he added.

He said, we have invested mighty human material and every person, family and region has its own contribution which legalizes and compels the stakeholders not to let these precious sacrifices go waste.

Gilani said that our occupier is not only brutal but cunning as well. Votes on basic necessities and daily needs are being portrayed as endorsement for their forced occupation, he said.

The octogenarian leader said that we should convey a strong message to the world community that Jammu and Kashmir was a political dispute and the election drama being staged in the territory by India could not be an alternative to the right to self-determination for the people in Jammu & Kashmir.
