Member Parliament from Srinagar and National Conference President Farooq Abdullah on Saturday said that independent Kashmir was not a reality as “we were landlocked and surrounded by nuclear powers China, Pakistan and India”.
“Farooq Abdullah says that there is nothing like freedom here. We are landlocked. On one side we have China, Pakistan on the other side and India on the third side. All three of them have atom bombs. We have nothing except Allah’s name. Those who are talking about Azadi are talking wrong,” he told journalists on the sidelines of a function at the party headquarters in Srinagar.
He said that Pakistan-administered Kashmir (PaK) belongs to Pakistan. “I tell them in plain terms – not only to Indians but also to the world – that PaK belongs to Pakistan and this side to India. This won’t change. Let them fight how many wars they want to. This won’t change,” said Abdullah.
Abdullah also refused to react to the Hurriyat’s demand of plebiscite in the state. “Farooq Abdullah is not part of Hurriyat. I can’t talk about Hurriyat,” he said.
