Srinagar, July 22, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Sheikh Nazir Ahmad, a lawyer by profession and uncle of the puppet Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, has said that Muhammad Afzal Guru was innocent and was made a scapegoat.
In his first-ever detailed interview to a Srinagar-based daily, Sheikh Nazir Ahmad, who was until recently the General Secretary of the pro-India National Conference said, “We pleaded with Delhi to give Afzal a fair trial. He was not involved in anything. Intelligence agencies just made a fake case against Afzal and then hanged him. He was made a scapegoat.”
Sheikh Nazir said that he was a Kashmiri and his nationality was Kashmiri not an Indian. He maintained that Maharaja Hari Singh did not accede to either of the dominions (India and Pakistan), nor did he ask India for military help. “I have never accepted accession to India. I have never taken an oath anywhere. I have never accepted India’s supremacy. I’m a person from Kashmir,” he said.
He said, the personnel of Indian paramilitary forces fire at protesters directly on head and chest and have every law like the Armed Forces Special Powers Act and other draconian laws at their disposal.
