India cannot hold Kashmir on gun point: Mehbooba

23

In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party President, Mehbooba Mufti, has warned the Indian government that it cannot keep Kashmir by holding a stick or a gun on the heads of the people.

Noting that history is testimony to the fact that no powerful nation has ruled people on the might of guns, addressing a public rally at Neel village of Banihal Mehbooba Mufti said, “You cannot keep Kashmir by holding a stick or a gun (on the heads of the people); the US failed to rule Afghanistan on the strength of power and had to leave the country.”

She asked the Indian government to restore Ar-ticle 370 and resolve the Kashmir issue as people of Kashmir want return of their identity and honour and that too with interest.

Mehbooba also asked the people to stand united and “strengthen their voice for the success of strug-gle in support of the restoration of special status guaranteed by the Indian Constitution and safeguard the identity and honour of people of Jammu and Kashmir”.—KMS
