Srinagar: Established in 1948, to safeguard the individual and collective human rights throughout the world, UNHRC was to ensure global peace and tranquility, but unfortunately it has failed to uphold its own slogan, Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani said in a statement issued to PTK connection with World Human Rights Day. He said that humans have inherent rights of dignity and worth which existed even before the laws and humans should not be taken as the property and commodity of the state and denying its rights accounts to the denial of its existence.
He said that place, where the people are being oppressed and subjugated in the name of colour, creed, cast and religion should be the centre of focus and attention as injustice to a single human is a threat to the whole humanity. Geelani said that like every year human rights day is being celebrated this year as well seminars and programs will be held across the globe, where thundering speeches, colorful cultural activities and belly services will be held on large scale enforcing and harassing weaker sections of subjugated people.
Pro-freedom Leader said that looking around the globe, peace and tranquility is hard to find, people are being massacred and crushed like petty miniatures and the pictures of blood bath in the media are horrifying. He said that most of these conflicts involve a particular faith i.e. Muslims, where big powers trade blood for oil. They establish and empower their financial assets by setting the war-fears and other ammunition to bombard the civilian population just to satisfy and serve their personnel egos. In Middle East, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Palestine is presenting a deserted look.
Their towns and cities have been converted into rubble. Geelani sahib said that in Myanmar those, fighting for decades for democracy, even they threaten the life and honour their Muslim population. Hundreds of Rhohingia Muslims are being burned alive and thousands are forced to leave their homeland. But world champions of peace and human rights voices are muted. They are comatose and unmoved but still celebrate the human rights day on 10th December each year.
Geelani said that in India too, hundreds of seminars and symposiums will be held throughout the country, worst enemies of humanities and human blood suckers will be distinguished in such events, but so-called worlds largest democracy has forcibly occupied our unfortunate land and has deprived us from our religious, Political and social rights for last 7 decades. He said that India doesnt respect and honor the promises of their own political godfathers and force the whole population to humiliating subjugation.
He said that any voice against this brute occupation is crushed with heavy military might to create a graveyard like silence. Geelani said that peace, prosperity and development may lure the innocent people but where there is no justice, there can be no peace and where there is no peace, talking of development is a foolish and mindless assertion.
He said that last five months devastated the whole valley our social, human and even religious rights were crushed under heavy boots. Blood bath and horrifying armed calm down was displayed with impunity, blinding and crippling our youth to maximum. Kids, elderly and youth were roughed up for participating in peaceful protests to establish deceitful and illusionary normalcy. But the state human rights commission was hibernating under anesthesia.
Dance of death was taking place under its nose but it turned deaf and dumb. Drawing hefty salaries, playing the shield of killers, they too are all set to celebrate and organise the 10th December day just to feed their unsatiated bellies. Geelani Sahib said that oppressed people have and use every means to strengthen their movement, catalyse their vigor and enhance their zeal for freedom and our nation has all the ingredients to do so in near future.
