Srinagar: In a joint statement, pro-freedom leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik said that the Kashmir freedom struggle is indigenous and has nothing to do with groups like ISIS and AL-Qaeda.
The authorities in New Delhi were “frustrated and have launched a well-planned psychological war against freedom movement,” the statement quoted them as saying.
“The policy makers in Delhi are trying their hard to create chaos, confusion & malign ongoing movement.”
Distancing from ISIS, Al-Qaeda and other organisations, the pro-freedom leaders said that the “movement has nothing to do with these world level groups and practically they are nonexistent in the state.”
“There is no role for these groups in our movement,” the statement quoted them as saying.
