Hurriyat (G) convenes Majlis Shoora


Srinagar, Sep 5: Srinagar: Hurriyat (G) convened its Majlis Shoora meeting at head office, Peer Bagh Srinagar, with its General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Sumji in chair.

The meeting deliberated upon the current political affairs with reference to the “ongoing movement for right to self-determination.”


A Hurriyat (G) statement said the meeting termed the Kashmir issue purely a political and a humanitarian issue.

“While condemning the obduracy adopted by India to suppress the people’s popular movement with military might and iron fists, the meeting rejected the stubbornness and resolved to take the movement to its logical destination, come what may,” the statement read.

Extending its full support to the election boycott call for the upcoming Panchayat and Municipal elections given by the Joint Hurriyat Leadership (JRL), the meeting described it “quite mandatory for the success of our resistance movement.”

“Terming the election boycott formula as a weapon in the hands of the subjugated people to cut down propaganda that by participation in the elections the people of Kashmir are satisfied within India,” the statement added.

Condemning the police action of prolonging the house arrest of Hurriyat (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani, the meeting expressed its deep concern about the negative impacts on his health.

The meeting also alleged that “India is afraid of the popularity graph of Syed Ali Geelani, so they are hell bent for his prolonged house arrest, which the meeting described as a sheer trampling of human rights”.

The meeting paid rich tributes to the slain youth, Fayaz Ahmad Wani of Kulgam by forces.

“It demanded a high level probe through international war tribunal to bring the killers of the innocent people to justice for their involvement in war crimes,” read the statement.

The meeting also condemned the gruesome killing of an innocent minor girl Muskan of Bonyar, Uri in a mysterious condition and demanded judicial probe into the heart wrenching incident.

The meeting alleged that the galloping crime rate in our pious society is a cause of deep concern for all of us.

“The meeting appealed the saner people to rise to the occasion and foil the nefarious designs of the occupation authorities to turn Kashmir into a hub of heinous crime, drugs, wine, obscenity and moral bankruptcy,” it said.
