SRINAGAR: All Parties Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Geelani on Monday strongly condemned the “murder” and shelling on the funeral procession of little Junaid Ahmad Akhoon at Eidgah Srinagar on last Saturday morning.
“This is not for the first time that forces are involved in such heinous and horrifying crimes at the behest and directions of their rulers,” the Hurriyat Conference said in a statement issued this evening.
“So-called champions of the future of coming generation and their education, should at least introspect themselves, and think with a cool and stable mind that what answer they will have for the wailing mother of this 7th standard student who was neither in any protest nor holding any stone in his hands,” The statement said.
“How come puppet CM, who herself is a female and mother, soothe the wounds of Junaid’s mother, who yells and cries not to take my beloved son to a distant Mazaar, instead bury him here near the house so that I can visit him and his grave daily,” the statement added. “His unfortunate and grief stricken father is yet to come to the terms that his little buddy has been crushed under the heavy boots of the oppressor in his own backyard where he used to play with him.”
The Hurriyat Conference said that the “cruel and inhuman” political fig-leaf to the mangled face of the “so-called Indian democracy, shamelessly” offering compensation for the blood of innocents, thinking that “every Kashmiri has a price tag of their blood and honour, but the befitting reply by the bereaved family of little Junaid was a smack on their ugly face, which was encouraging and a boost for the resolute of the freedom loving people”.
