NIA, EDs allegations baseless, people well aware of all: Geelani
Srinagar, March 26: Rejecting the reports circulated by
Indian agencies NIA and ED about the seizing properties belonging to
incarcerated leaders Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Raja
Mehraj-ud-din Kalwal, Shahid-ul-Islam, Farooq Ahmad Dar, and prominent
businessman Zahoor Ahmad Watali lodged in Tihar jail, Hurriyat Conference (G)
chairman, Syed Ali Geelani said that the health of these allegations against
the leaders is known to everybody and people very well understand the mindset
behind such baseless accusations.
It is propaganda and baseless, aimed to gratify their
vote bank and as long as Kashmiris are hit hard, the power athirst forces are
guaranteed Narinder Modi to stay in power.
In a statement issued to media, he said, Hurriyat (G)
chairman said that the government is very well aware about the fact that the
Hurriyat leaders have not amassed any illegal properties.
“Claiming to seize the property at the time of election
in India has put a big question mark on the competence and efficiency of their
much hyped investigative institution, which has dug so low to pave its worse in
every trivial issue without any documentary proof,” he said.
Hurriyat leader said that in order to win parliament
elections, Narendra Modi claimed that his government held air strikes in
Pakistan, but when the international community, opposition and sane voices in
India raised question over this claim, Indian government launched a crackdown
on Hurriyat organizations, political leadership, and unarmed people of Kashmir
to silence opposite voices.
Terming the Kashmir dispute a reality like Himalaya,
Hurriyat chairman said that rulers and their supporters should bear it in mind
that muscular approach can never force a nation to submission and curbing the
political space and arresting the political leadership in forged and fake
charges and creating fear psychoses cannot lease them forever.
Geelani said that people of India in majority have been
intoxicated with a venomous propaganda against the movement of Kashmir and its
leadership by their fascist government with the help of their hyper-national
and biased media houses.
In such times, it’s the responsibility of Kashmir’s
conscious journalists and writers to being forth the reality of oppressed
Kashmiris. It’s understood that propaganda takes front page headlines in newspapers,
but it is also important to highlight the sufferings and hardships of Kashmiri
people at the hands of military might.
