Stone Pelting No Offence: Geelani

SRINAGAR: Clarifying the recent statement of Syed Ali Geelani wherein he had condemned the stone pelting incident at his rally in Sopore, Hurriyat Conference (G) today said that the stone pelting in no way could be termed as an ‘offence’ and the same is used an option to give vent to the anger by the oppressed and suppressed people.

According to a statement, “police creates disturbances and that the nature of the stone pelting is not same every time and everywhere but often in reaction and response the brute force applied by police and para-military force. 

“Geelani Sahib had condemned stone pelting incident in a particular context as there was no resistance from police or para military force in his Sopore rally but some mischievous elements resorted to stone pelting without any reason and it was only to sabotage Geelani sahib rally. As far as Kashmir is concerned it is in no way different from other parts of the world. The reaction is expected even in those parts of the world where people are striving against the oppression and forced occupation and it is in no way considered as an offence.”
