Satya Pal Malik urges militants in J-K to give up arms, invites them for talks

Thursday, June 13, 2019

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik yesterday asked militants to give up arms and invited them to hold talks, saying dialogue is the only way through which they can get what they want within the ambit of the Constitution.

He said India cannot be made to bow through violence.

"Take everything from us, we will give our life, but through love and dialogue. For that (PM) Narendra Modi is ready, we are ready. Come to the dialogue table and take it forward," Malik said at a marathon press briefing on the achievements of his administration.

"Whatever you want can be achieved through talks and dialogue. You have your own constitution, you have a separate flag. Whatever more you want, you will get it through the democratic process and within the ambit of the Indian Constitution," he said.

The governor said the militants may not realise it now, but 10 years down the line they will repent that they chose the wrong path.

"You cannot make India to bow through violence," he said.

Malik said the problem of militancy exists in Kashmir not only due to unemployment among youth, but also because politicians have been misleading the people for the past several decades.

"There is unemployment across the country but unemployed people (elsewhere) in the country do not pick up weapons against the government. There is something more here. The basic thing here is that the leaders have not told people the truth. People have been misled and shown false dreams, which will never be fulfilled," he said.

Malik said the people have been shown the dream of 'azadi' (independence) and sometimes that of autonomy.

"When these things did not work, they were shown the dreams of paradise through radicalisation. I want to tell the youth that they have two paradises -- one is Kashmir and if they become good Muslims, they will get the other one also," he said.
