Reply to Press Release by Ex-Zonal President of KNP, Mr Nazim Bhatti
After reading the recent press release by Ex- Zonal President of KNP, Mr Nazim Bhatti I have no option to release this reply to state the facts.
All Senior Members of Kashmir National Party including Sect general and member PAK zone have agreed this statement.
I would firstly like to state that when Mr Nazim Bhatti was a member of KNP as Zonal President he would not even then have the authority to dismiss Dr Shabir Choudhry as a member of the KNP. This is because Dr Shabir Choudhry is the Chairman of the Diplomatic Committee and member of central committee and per the constitution of KNP a zonal president has no such authority. At present Mr Nazam Bhatti is not even basic member of KNP how he can such action. This right lies with the Chairman and the Central Committee Members alone.
On the 25th March 2012 a meeting was held between Senior KNP Members. The people at this meeting were Mr Nazim Bhatti (Ex-Zonal President), Mr Zubair Ul-Haq Ansari (Spokes Person), Asim Mirza (Chief Organiser), Mr Mumtaz Mirza (Ex-Member Central Committee) and Myself.
At this meeting it was mutually agreed that any person who does not see the works of KNP being part of there works should leave the party and pursue there own goals as the goals of the Kashmir National Party continue to be an Independent, United, Secular and Peaceful Kashmir.
Unfortunately in this meeting Mr Nazim Bhatti and Mr Mumtaz Mirza regretfully decided to leave the Kashmir National Party. All senior party members were informed of this outcome.
I would lastly like to point out that Dr Shabir Choudhry is and continues to be a loyal and hard working member of the KNP and continues to hold his post as Chairman of the Diplomatic Committee.
One more agreement made between departing members was not to spread filth on each other but unfortunately some members could not keep this gentleman’s agreement.
The actions of Mr Nazim Bhatti, has but only stained himself and I see no need for such actions.
The Kashmir National Party will always take the true path in the struggle for an Independent, Secular and Peaceful Kashmir.
