Geelani condemns Sopore killings


Srinagar: Expressing his deep sorrow, grief and surprise over the killing of another person in Sopore, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani Wednesday said that the persons or the agencies involved in these types of incidents are not only the enemies of the humanity but they are also working against the freedom struggle of the Kashmiri nation and this act is purely a terrorist act.

In a statement he said, “Picture about the killers is unclearyet but the recent statement of the Indian defense minister Manohar Parrikar that “target killings and terrorism is the solution of the militancy in Kashmir” gives birth to many questions and doubts and in this perspective we can’t rule-out the another angle of these actions that it may be the deliberate attempt to put the terrorist tag on the freedom struggle of Kashmiris.”

“The telecommunication is working as a life line in the modern era and the life looks impossible without this system. It is no crime to work in this sector and it can’t be the base to kill anybody. The target killing of the employees and people related to the telecom companies in Sopore is beyond the intellect and we fail to understand that who people and what objectives are behind these attacks?” he asked.
