Mufti acting against aspirations of Nation: Geelani


Terms his “future of Kashmir lies with India” a “big lie”

SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference led by octogenarian Syed Ali Geelani Friday termed the statement of Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed in which he had said “the future of Kashmir lies with India” as “a big lie and deception”.

“This statement is totally contrary to the situations, events, ground realities and history of Kashmir and it is very far from the truth,” Geelani said. “Jammu & Kashmir is the most militarized region of the world and these forces are occupying this land against the wishes and inner of its people and are unleashing brutal and inhuman atrocities upon the residents of this region.”

Geelani, who is continuously under the house detention from last 5 months and who was once again today on 2nd October forcibly stopped from offering the Friday congregational prayers, expressed his strong reaction over the statement of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed: “Pro-Indian politicians like Mufti Sayeed can’t hold hostage the entire Kashmiri nation for their chairs,” he said. “The majority of Jammu & Kashmir have neither accepted the forced military occupation of India in the past and nor will they do this blunder in the future. Kashmiris had resisted the forced occupation of India right from day one and they are still opposing this illegal relationship.”

 “Mufti Sayeed can gather benefits for his children in the Indian military occupation but the future of the Kashmiri nation is in no way secure in this occupation. Indian occupation has only given deaths, miseries and destruction to the Kashmiris which resulted in political uncertainty, instability and disorder in this entire region,” Geelani fumed.

“He and other people of his tribe have got no mandate for issuing ‘Fatwas’ (Dictates) about the future of Kashmir,” Geelani said. “These kinds of pro-Indian people come to front because of the boycott of the resistance leadership to the election process otherwise they will hardly find their addresses.”
