Bhat's remark on UN resolution faces flak

A day after moderate Hurriyat Conference leader Professor Abdul Gani Bhat termed UN resolutions on Kashmir as dead, various separatist outfits on Monday termed the assertions ‘absurd and feigned’.

During a seminar on Sunday Bhat had stated that people of Kashmir should stop beating UN resolutions drum as according to him, UN approach towards Kashmir has been like a “deadwood” over the past decades.

Reacting to Bhat’s assertions, Hardline Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Geelani said that if the UN resolutions are ‘irrelevant’, then the existence of UN as an institution is also under cloud.

 “It took 100 years for the UN resolutions for Taiwan to be implemented there. Our case is just 65 year old, how come we claim that the resolutions are dead?” he asked.

Echoing similar views about UN resolutions, Dukhtaran-e-Milat (Daughters of Faith) chairperson Asiya Andrabi stated the elements terming UN resolutions irrelevant are themselves a deadwood in the pro-freedom camp.

“The need of the hour is that they must be expelled so that the chaos comes to an end,” she asserted and remarked that the UN resolutions provide a basis of the Kashmir resolution.

The DeM chairperson asked Mirwaiz Umar (chairman of moderate Hurriyat faction) to expel the leaders ‘who create confusion about Kashmir solution’.
