Summoning Syed Naseem Geelani to Delhi act of vengeance and harassment. Forcing one for talks by bullying is ridiculous. This was stated by the JRL leaders Mirwaiz Muhammad Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a joint press release issued today to media.
Terming the summoning of senior resistance leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s son Syed Naseem Geelani again to Delhi as act of vengeance and intimidation, Mirwaiz and Malik said that besides arresting many leaders, businessmen, journalists and other people including Shabir Ahmad Shah, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Shahid-ul-Islam, Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saif-u-ullah, Raja Meraj- u-Din Kalwal, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Farooq Ahmed Dar, Zahoor Ahmad Watali, Kamran Yousuf ,Javid Ahmad and Shahid Yousuf shah and others, and putting them in Tihar Jail, Indian rulers using NIA and ED have time and again summoned hundreds of others including both sons of Syed Ali shah Geelani to Delhi several times, wasting their precious time, intimidating and humiliating them.
Leaders said that summoning and torturing kith and kin and even friends of resistance leaders, arresting dozens under frivolous charges and putting in Tihar jail Delhi is actually a ploy of Indian rulers, their Kashmiri abettors and agencies who want to put whole resistance camp especially JRL leadership into submission and bully it fort a talks with its envoy.
Leaders said that from February last year till now, almost one year has passed during which this NIA, ED bullying has been going on. Scribes and businessmen of high repute, lawyers and jurists, intellectuals, political workers and leaders and even teen age kids and students have been terrorized in the name of terror funding by NIA.
Calling people to Delhi, threatening them of dire consequences, making Joseph Goebbels like propaganda through biased Indian media especially news Channels and even putting many people in Tihar Jail on concocted charges or in the name of investigation, is all a well knitted plan of Indian rulers and their Kashmiri abettors who on one hand try to fool their own people about Kashmir and on the hand want to Put Kashmiris into submission and stop resisting Indian hegemony and illegal occupation.
Leaders said that many incarcerated people including APHC leader Syed Shabir Ahmad Shah and senior Kashmiri businessman Zahoor Ahmad Watali who are in custody from last many months are seriously and are even being denied a proper medical facility by the oppressors.
Leaders said that after failing to defeat Kashmiri resistance by military might, pellet terrorism, blinding, arresting thousands including young, old youth and women, looting and vandalizing peoples properties, beating and torturing common people, clamping repeated curfews and restrictions in towns and market places especially in Sher-I-Khas and Lal Chowk Srinagar and hence destroying business of Kashmiris, putting a blanket ban on all political activities and arresting or house arresting leaders on daily basis, India has started a new kind of ploy to crush peoples resistance. It now wants us to talk to its envoy by intimidating us and this summoning of kith and kin by NIA is one example of this “forced talks policy”.
Leaders said that tyrannical and bullying policies of India rulers, their Kashmiri abettors and agencies have failed in past and are bound to fail in future too and we want to tell these oppressors that their policies can never force Kashmiris into submission and our resistance will continue with much more zeal and passion.
Don’t interfere: India to Erdogan over Kashmir
New Delhi, Feb 15: India on Saturday criticised Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for raking up the Kashmir issue during his address at the Pakistan Parliament, and asked him to desist from interfering in India’s internal affairs.
External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India rejects all references made by the Turkish President on Jammu and Kashmir, asserting that the union territory is an integral and inalienable part of India.
In his address at a joint session of Pakistan’s Parliament on Friday, Erdogan compared the “struggle” of Kashmiri people with that of the fight by Turkish people against foreign domination during the World War I.
Kashmiri people have suffered for decades and their sufferings have increased following “unilateral steps taken in recent times”, Erdogan said referring to India revoking the special status of Jammu and Kashmir last year.
“India rejects all references to Jammu and Kashmir, which is an integral and inalienable part of India,” Kumar said.
He was responding to a question on Erdogan’s comments on Kashmir as well as its reference in a joint declaration by Turkey and Pakistan.
“We call upon the Turkish leadership to not interfere in India’s internal affairs and develop proper understanding of the facts, including the grave threat posed by terrorism emanating from Pakistan to India and the region,” Kumar said.
Last September, Erdogan raised the Kashmir issue during his address at the United Nations General Assembly.
In August last year, India announced its decision to withdraw special status of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two union territories.
Pakistan reacted angrily to the move and even downgraded its diplomatic ties with India by expelling the Indian High Commissioner.
Islamabad also unsuccessfully tried to rally international support against India on the issue.
PULWAMA ATTACK ANNIVERSARY: Memorial inaugurated, soldiers remembered
Justice done, Jaish decimated: CRPF
Srinagar, Feb 14: A memorial was inaugurated and floral tributes were paid on Friday to 40 CRPF troopers who were killed in a car bomb suicide attack a year ago in Pulwama’s Lethpora area.
Senior officials of all the wings of the security forces — including the Army, the J&K police and the CRPF — laid wreaths at the memorial to pay tributes to the deceased soldiers. The names of all the soldiers, their ranks and battalions were displayed on the occasion.
On the occasion, Special Director General of CRPF for J&K Zulfiquar Hasan said that justice has been done with 40 “brave men” who died in deadly suicide attack as all Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) militants involved in the act were killed and the outfit was decimated.
Talking to reporters on the sidelines of wreath laying ceremony at the newly constructed memorial, Zulfiquar said that entire force stands by with the families of “fallen heroes.”
“Today, on the occasion of first anniversary of Lethpora attack, we remember all the 40 martyrs and stand by with their families,” he said.
Asked whether justice was done, he said: “We killed all the Jaish men including top commanders of the outfit involved in the Lethpora attack. Today, the outfit stands decimated,” he said.
On February 14 last year, Jaish militant Adil Dar, rammed his explosive laden car into the CRPF convoy coming from Jammu.
Fourty CRPF men died in the attack while several others were injured.
The police, army and the CRPF launched a joint assault on the Jaish soon after the attack and a joint strategy was chalked out with a sole aim to wipe out Jaish.
As per official figures, 36 militants of Jaish were killed including all nine commanders of the outfit, who according to the security officials had hatched conspiracy and were involved in the Lethpora attack.
“Today, not just the Jaish, but all other militant outfits are at the back foot. We took Jaish head on soon after the Lethpora attack,” the special DGP said.
Asked about the relief and compensation provided to the families of slain CRPF men, the special DG said that the force has a structured system and the concerns of families of “martyrs” are being taken care of.
Laying wreaths at the memorial set up at the 185 battalion headquarters of CRPF at Lethpora, top officials and CRPF personnel vowed to face the challenge of militancy bravely as a professional force.
Meanwhile, Professor Umesh Gopinath Jadhav, who runs a NGO in Maharashtra was the special guest at the wreath-laying ceremony for collecting soil from the lawns of all the 40 fallen men of CRPF.
Jadhav said he travelled 61,000 kilometers across India to collect the soil from the lawns of all the 40 soldiers who lost their lives in the attack. “
The soil collected from the homes of all 40 brave hearts is with me and today I presented it to the Special Director General of CRPF and requested him to add the at the memorial constructed in the memory of brave men,” he said. “This is a little contribution which makes me feel proud today.” (With inputs from KNO)
