Guv respects Hurriyat but says Aazadi, autonomy not achievable



SRINAGAR, June 12: Governor Satya Pal Malik Wednesday said that he respected the Hurriyat but they were fighting for a wrong cause.

“I respect Hurriyat who face inconveniences. But they are not fighting for right cause,” Malik said at a press conference here.

He said the people have been shown the dream of ‘Azaadi’ (independence) and sometimes that of autonomy.

“When these things did not work, they were shown the dreams of paradise through radicalisation. I want to tell the youth that they have two paradises — one is Kashmir and if they become good Muslims, they will get the other one also,” he said.

“I want to tell the youth of Kashmir, shun violence and come to Raj Bhawan to have lunch with me. Then explain to me what good Kashmir will get from the path you have chosen,” he said.

Malik called on the political leaders to help bring back the youth to the mainstream society. “They have to muster the courage and tell them. I request the mainstream leaders, preachers and intelligentsia to bring back these youth (to the mainstream) and whatever is needed for their rehabilitation, we will do it,” he added.
