Srinagar, Oct 15: The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, headed by Mohammad Yasin Malik, today said activist Anna Hazare's remarks on Kashmir is the “worst example of intellectual impropriety and moral bankruptcy”.
“Hazare's statement (that Kashmir is an integral part of India) is the worst example of intellectual impropriety and moral bankruptcy,” Malik said in a statement here.
Attacking Hazare, he said “those who brand themselves as an image of Gandhiji are actually trying to mislead the world.”
“Hazare visited Kashmir in 1998 and even came to my residence. He spoke of human rights violations and advocated restoration of political rights of the people. His latest statement on Kashmir has surprised everyone,” Malik said.
The separatist leader accused Hazare of being aligned with the RSS. “He is still wearing the RSS nicker (shorts) under the Khadi of Gandhiji.”
Hazare, reacting to a statement of his team member and noted Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan, said Kashmir is an intergal part of the country.
Bhushan had recently said a plebsicite could be an option for settling the Kashmir issue, remarks for which he was attacked by some youth in his chambers.
