Srinagar, May 21: Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday said that the government had accepted defeat by banning political programmes and arresting Hurriyat leaders.
In a statement, Geelani condemned the banning of Eid-Gah Challo programme and house imprisonment of Hurriyat leaders.
“Banning of political programs and arrest of leaders is an open state terrorism,” said Geelani.
“…imposing curfew in Srinagar city on the death anniversaries of Shaheed Mirwaiz Molvi Mohammad Farooq, Shaheed Khawja Abdul Gani Lone and the Hawal Martyrs is the frustration and acceptance of defeat by the government.”
He said that Kashmir is a “police state where government is ruling the people on gun point.”
“The freedom of expression is already banned here and now Miss Mehbooba Mufti can go to any extent to appease the communal forces of India,”said Geelani.
He said that India is using every oppressive and imperialistic measure to suppress the peaceful and genuine voices of the people of Jammu & Kashmir so that this country can continue its forced and illegal military occupation of this state.
“Indian imperialism is at war with the unarmed and peace loving people of Kashmir and the local pro-Indian politicians draw huge salaries for advocating this forced occupation in here,” he added.
The octogenarian leader warned of a storm in the state if the government didn’t stop its “wicked policies”.
“The conspiracies and the wicked policies which the India and the pro-Indian politicians are playing in Jammu & Kashmir can anytime trigger a wild storm here and the people of Kashmir will never allow India to succeed in its evil designs,” he said.
