Stone-pelters fighting for nation, says Farooq

Youth pelt stones to end Kashmir unrest, nothing to do with tourism, says Farooq Abdullah

"New Delhi is obligated to be proactive in seeking a just, fair and acceptable solution to the Kashmir Issue and had they been forthcoming and keen in talking bilaterally, the question of global mediation would not have been raised today", Abdullah said.

National Conference President and former chief minister of the Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday defended those throwing stones at the police and security forces, saying they were giving sacrifices for the resolution of the lingering Kashmir issue. Crowds had begun pelting stones at the army during the encounter, resulting in injuries to 23 soldiers, with one sustaining serious injuries. "They (stone-pelters) will risk starvation, but will throw stones for the nation- that's what we need to understand". "They are not sacrificing lives for tourism", Abdullah said during workers' convention at his Gupkar residence in Srinagar. It may be recalled that Abdullah is contesting the by-election to Srinagar Lok Sabha seat. High voter turnout on the April 9 bypolls would favour Farooq Abdullah, pitted against the lesser known People's Democratic Party opponent Nazir Ahmad Khan.

"If he (stone pelting youth) is giving up his life, he is not doing it for tourism".

Not moments later, the new episode premiered on the Adult Swim channel along with a marathon of old episodes. Tonight was supposed to be the fourth episode of the final season of Samurai Jack on Adult Swim .

Farooq's statement came barely days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the youth of Jammu and Kashmir to choose between tourism and terrorism. "It is Allah who is providing the livelihood to the people irrespective of their religions", he said.

Abdullah has also said that if India and Pakistan can not resolve their issues, then the United States should come forward and facilitate the resolution between the two countries as a third party.

Abdullah, who has been three-time Chief Minister of the State, welcomed the United States offer of mediation between India and Pakistan. "This is must and they should start the process before the nuclear war starts between the two countries".
