Geelani flays crackdown on pro-freedom camp, silence of HR groups




Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani has strongly condemned the crackdown on pro-freedom leadership in Kashmir and condemned rights bodies for their silence.
He termed the imposition of curfew in Srinagar and Handwara and detaining dozens of people and “vandalizing Masjids and residential houses” as “worst kind of state terrorism.”
“On one hand, Indian forces are killing our youth on daily basis and on the other hand, they are not allowing us to condole our brave hearts,” he said in a statement.
He appealed the human rights organizations across the globe and amnesty international in particular to take a serious note of this “state-sponsored terrorism.”
“Had the same incident (Handwara killings) occurred in any other part of world barring Muslim majority state or country there would have been hue and cry from every corner,” said Geelani.
He said such bogus and biased approach towards Muslims is highly condemnable and inhuman in every aspect and that they have no right to claim as the champions of human values.
Reiterating his protest call after Friday prayers across the Kashmir and taking pledge to carry forward this noble mission till its logical end, Geelani said “we have no other choice than to show our commitment and strong resolve that we will never surrender in front of Indian brutalities and massacres.”
“We have to show that our fight will continue till the last Indian soldier’s presence in our land,” he said.
