Duty bound to safeguard sacrifices: Geelani 

Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani

Srinagar, Sep 17: Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani on Monday paid tributes to the civilian Raouf Ahmad Gani and other four militants killed in a recent encounter in Kulgam, and reiterated his “pledge to take the ongoing movement to its logical end”.
The spokesman quoted Geelani saying: “We need to be aware of this and we are duty bound to safeguard their sacrifices and should desist from such activities which prove harmful for our movement.”
Hailing the sacrifices rendered by youth, Hurriyat chairman said that their blood is “precious than Haram-e-Paak and the people who bargain these sacrifices for their personal gains are those traitors who betray their milli interests and will definitely get punished for such deeds in the hereafter.”
“Aggressive measures by the government forces, luring the youth with jobs, perks, and privileges will never succeed in deterring us from pursuing our cause,” Geelani, as per the spokesman, said.
Appealing people to boycott every election, be it Panchayat, Assembly or Parliament, Geelani said: “it provides Indian leadership an opportunity for changing the demography and discourse of Jammu and Kashmir, state subject law and economic exploitation. The people who participate in these elections are not sincere and they just play with the sentiments of the people for their petty gains.”
