Autonomy only solution to Kashmir, feels Abdullah


"I am telling the world clearly". You forget Instrument of accession and say that the part is yours.

"Both India and Pakistan must sit together with the people of both parts of Kashmir and work out internal autonomy for both parts within the existing borders". "Let them fight how many wars they want to".

Hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Sunday slammed National Conference president Farooq Abdullah for dismissing talk of an independent Kashmir, saying "power-hungry" politicians have always "played deceit" with people.

On Saturday, he told the media, "Pakistan Administered Kashmir belongs to Pakistan and this side to India".

He called Kashmir landlocked and said that Kashmiris have no freedom. All three of them have atom bombs. "Those who are talking about Azadi are wrong". They didn't recognize the love with which we chose to join them.

Hitting back at Abdullah, Union Minister Jitendra Singh had said, "National Conference had given up its demand for autonomy over 40 years ago when Sheikh Abdullah got himself reinstated as CM and conveniently accepted all the provisions of Indian Constitution". He also directed that while the state is facing unrest in the Valley, India is not contributing much towards peace.
