Srinagar: Terming the BJP-PDP coalition government as the biggest enemy of the Kashmiri people, Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani today said that on the one hand these people want to settle the non-state subjects in the state but on the other hand they are rendering the citizens of this state homeless.
While criticizing the Mehbooba Mufti government, he said that for remaining in power this party has started a long term process of eliminating of Kashmiri people. According to the Hurriyat statement, a delegation of residents of Pandrathen Badamibagh today came to Tehreek-e-Hurriyat head office here at Hyderpora and wanted to meet Geelani, but the police present there didnt allowed them to meet him.
On hearing about the incident, Geelani directed his personal secretary Peer Saifullah and his deputy Abdul Hameed Magray to meet the delegation who immediately came out of the office and listened to the grievances of the Panderathen people and assured them that he will convey their problems to the Geelani.
The delegation said that they are living in Panderathen area from last 150 years and today the government is forcing them to leave the area without arranging any alternate place.
They said that on our resistance, the administration used excessive force against us and used teargas shelling and lathi charge to silence we people. Not only this, the SHO of the concerned police station used abusive language and threatened us of dire consequences said a group of people. Delegation said that we are poor and helpless people and after Almighty Allah, Geelani sahab is our last hope who can listen to our problems. But unfortunately at reaching here we were not allowed by the police to meet him. Peer Saifullah assured the gathering that he will convey their concerns to the Geelani Sahab and promised them every possible help.
Geelani Sahab was deeply grieved on hearing the issues of the delegation and strongly condemned the government actions. He said that the local pro-Indian political parties had always unleashed enormous atrocities upon their own people since 1947. Unfortunately the narrow minded leaders of one pro-Indian party (NC) established relations with the Indian National Congress in 47 and made the entire nation slave of Indian imperialism and now another pro-Indian party (PDP) are establishing its relations with the fanatic communal forces who want to eliminate the Kashmiris from this region.
Geelani said that we have to stop the wicked designs of the RSS backed PDP government otherwise we will become strangers in our own land. Hurriyat Chairman cautioned that the expulsion of the Panderathen residents will have serious consequences; he however said that if it is so compulsory to evacuate the area then these people should be provided with alternate place and adequate compensation for their rehabilitation.
