All Parties Hurriyet Conference General Secretary, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, has urged the people to apprise the Amarnath Yatris about the reality of freedom struggle of Kashmir while continuing with the old tradition of providing best hospitality to pilgrims.
According to media sources, Shabbir Ahmad Shah in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “Amarnath Yatris are our guests who are unaware of the reality of this disputed territory and are fed with misinformation by the propaganda of Indian media against Kashmir.”
He stressed the trade bodies and tourism of south Kashmir to continue with their age-old tradition of providing the best hospitality to Yatris and also apprise them of the reality of Kashmir dispute.
“The Yatris need to be taken well care of and be told that the people of Kashmir have no enmity with the people of India but they only demand their birthright of freedom like India demanded from British,” he said.
“We should tell them that Kashmiris have witnessed hundreds of massacres like Jalianwala Bagh. We should tell them that thousands of our youth are picked up and subjected to enforced disappearance,” he said.
