Srinagar, Dec 23: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani on Sunday said that its crimes against common people in Jammu and Kashmir are so grave and hearts wrenching that India don’t need any excuse to highlight them.
Commenting on the statement by the Indian Home Minister, wherein he had said “Separatists in Kashmir use every opportunity to provoke the masses and incite anti-India Sentiment”.
In a statement issued, Hurriyat (G) chairman said, “we have time and again reiterated our stand that we neither horbour any hatred against India nor we want or wish anything bad for the people of India. We wholeheartedly wish them good and honestly want them to live in peace and prosperity. We are not fond of criticizing India nor are we in search of any excuses to hammer you out.”
He said that, “Indian iron fist and its armed forces have left its ugly footprints everywhere in the state providing an ample proof of untold stories of this oppression and our nation is fighting very hard to get rid of this slavery for the last so many decades, but India instead of addressing the fundamental issue always beats the bush to stay in a denial mode.”
He said that scars of the mighty oppression are so painful and traumatizing that whole population is suffering for decades together. “Pointing fingers to neighboring country to hide its blood drenched hands has no takers especially in a civilized world,” Hurriyat (G) chairman said.
He further said that, “Indian hegemony and atrocities have crossed all its limits and even the worst enemies of humanity feel ashamed when a baby of just 18 months is showered with pallets by the so-called world’s largest democracy”.
Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman said that such childish utterances from Delhi rulers can no longer lease the oppressor for too long. “Hatchery of stooges groomed in the lap of India particularly the fresh entrants may justify the occupation, but history and the Indian people themselves are witness to the fact that such maneuvering can never cement their forced control of the populace and statements like this is a confession that people of Kashmir are not only alienated with India but express it too,” he added.
He said that Indian rulers should accept the ground reality before it is too late to mend the situation.
Meanwhile, expressing deep shock and grief over the heavy death toll after a tsunami hit the coast on Indonesia’s Sunda Strait, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani said that human loss anywhere is painful. Natural tragedies unnerve and gloom a conscious soul, but are helpless to rectify it, as it is beyond his control.
Hurriyat (G) chairman said that we condole and console families of those who lost their lives and pray from the core of our heart for the speedy and quick recovery of the injured. He further said that accidents and natural calamities are not within anybody control and one can only show sympathizes.
Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani also expressed his deep condolence with the families of all those 8 persons killed in Uttarakhand tragic accident and also consoled the injured people in the same accident.
He said although death has a fixed date and time and every life has to perish, but such tragedies are unfortunate and shocking.
While condoled to the bereaved families for their irreparable loss, he prayed for eternal peace of departed souls and wished the injured, speedy recovery.
Amit Shah’s West Bengal speech clear call for Hindu Rashtra: PDP
Srinagar, Jan 23: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday termed the BJP President Amit Shah’s West Bengal speech an open call for a Hindu Rashtra and said that the Saffron party chief has challenged the very idea of India.
Shah while addressing a rally at West Bengal said that Hindu, Buddhist, and Sikh need not be afraid in India because the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill has been brought to grant them citizenship. He also termed Muslims as infiltrators and stated that time for their deportation has come.
“This is nothing but an open call for a Hindu Rashtra. Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in itself is laying foundations of a Hindu Rashtra and exclusion of Muslims and Christians. What Amit Shah has said is communal poison and this is a moment of challenge for right thinking Indians who still believe in Idea of India as we have always been made to believe,” said senior PDP leader and former minister Naeem Akhtar.
He added that the statement of BJP President has sent a very negative message to the communities other than the country’s majority community. Such remarks, said Akhtar, aren’t being taken positively in the states like Jammu and Kashmir which have Muslim majority character and other states with sizeable Muslim and Christian population like Kerala, West Bengal, UP and Bihar and northeast states.
“What Amit Shah has said negates the essence, letter, and spirit of the constitution of India which is a covenant of all communities, all classes, and all people of the county to live together,” Akhtar said.
The PDP leader said that the BJP is setting up a dangerous game for electoral gains in the country and is playing a communal hatred card as last resort to win elections. “Unfortunately, BJP has only one goal and that is to win elections at whatever cost. The real issues facing the country including the problems of Jammu and Kashmir which are of a major nature besides joblessness, agrarian crises have been thrown in cold storage,” Akhtar said.
Beware of activists impacting K-movement: Geelani to Youth
Srinagar, Jan 23: When young blood is so enthusiastic to achieve their goal, no power on earth can force them to subjugation; this was stated by Hurriyat (g) Conference, Syed Ali Geelani, in a telephonic address to the mourners of the slain Dr Shams-ul-Haq at Soghan Shopian on Wednesday.
Quoting Geelani, the spokesman in a statement said that Hurriyat (g) chairman reiterated his pledge to take the movement to its logical end and will never allow anybody to barter the precious blood of “martyrs”.
“We need to be aware of this and we are duty bound to safeguard their sacrifices and should desist from such activities which prove detrimental for our movement,” he said.
He said that deceitful slogans of development, prosperity or material gains can never be a substitute for freedom. Politicians have turned into political leeches, sucking every drop of our blood to satisfy their “masters” in Delhi.
The separatist leader said that our movement has become so precious that no perk and privilege can compel us for any compromise.
Stressing upon people in general and youth in particular, Hurriyat (g) chairman said that we need to strengthen our faith and protect our civil, social, religious and human liberties, avoid miss deeds and nourish the Islamic culture in our homes and society without indulging in sectarian hatred and social evils.
