Srinagar: Appealing people not to be swayed by the hollow and false slogans of Democracy, Humanity and Kashmiriyat and remaining stead past in their struggle, chairmn of Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Geelani Thursday saluted the courage and dedication of people during these tough days of oppression at the hands of occupying forces.
According to the statement issued to KNS, Geelani was addressing a gathering from Hyderpora and adjoining areas, especially youth and women who wanted to meet him, but were stopped by the police at airport road.
They started slogans in favour of Azadi, Burhan and Geelani.
Geelani addressed them through the window of his office cum residence and thanked them for showing their concern.
He stressed on the discipline and advised them to endorse and follow the programme given by the resistance camp.
Commenting on the Indian Home Minister Raj Nath Singhs speech in Parliament wherein he had said that we uphold of the ethos of Democracy, Humanity and Kashmiriyat, Geelani said that we have tasted the fruits of the Indian democracy for the last 69 years. Their so-called Democracy has forcibly occupied our territory and they use all their un-democratic means to suppress our just struggle, he said.
Regarding Humanity, Geelani said that Indian Rulers should feel ashamed to utter words like Humanity as they are most un-human and brutal people & if anybody wants to see the imprints of their so-called humanity they should come and see how every nook and corner of Kashmir is stained with the blood of innocents. They have butchered more than 6 lakh people here in Jammu and Kashmir and the killing spree still has no end. Their Humanity echoes in every house of Kashmir. They may hoodwink their own people or others but not we Kashmiries, as we have seen their criminal and cruel face for the last 7 decades, he said.
Geelani said even their own people in India like Dalits and low caste Hindus are not safe in the hands of these champions of Humanity, and every day these poor chaps are subjected to the worst king of humiliation and brutality at the hands of upper caste Hindus and goons of Sang Parivaar who are being encouraged by the stalwarts of these fanatic and religious monks.
Referring to Kashmiryat by Indian home minister, Geelani said that we are in better know of our centuries old human and ethical traditions and we dont need lecture from anybody especially those whose hands are drenched in the human blood especially Kashmiries. We hold our tradition even in the toughest times and we are proud of these values and our non-Muslim brothers stand testimony to our beliefs, he said.
Terming the Indian politicians in Kashmiri as the collaborators of the bloodshed and genocide of Kashmiri and the paid goons of Delhi, Geelani said that they help our killers just for their personal benefits, but they must remember that history doesnt spare anybody and they will be remembered as the tools of these butchers and will have to pay a heavy price if not here then hereafter.
Commenting on reports from various departments that their officers especially those from outside the state are issuing curfew passes to their employees and compel them to defer the ongoing protests, Geelani warned these outsiders that you are not in India but in Jammu and Kashmir and you need to respect the sentiment of the majority and stop playing the dirty role of helping the oppressors, otherwise you will be yourself responsible for the consequences.
Geelani appealed to the employees that they should join their people and raise the voice against the atrocities and unjust treatment meted out to their brethren. They are not alone but whole nation is with them as this is our common cause. After shouting slogans for a while, people dispersed peacefully. (KNS)
