Rulers, bureaucrats have become a ‘laughing stock’ in Kashmir: Geelani

SRINAGAR: Seriously con­cerned about the unabated and non-stop arrests, continued for the last five months throughout the valley, Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani said that rulers as well as their bureaucracy has made themselves a laughing stock as they being so called “highly ed­ucated” still obey and follow dicta­tion from their masters, with their eyes shut and ears plugged.

In a statement issued to KNS, Geelani said that that the “law’’ enforcing executives blindly and randomly subject the peo­ple to the sharp cleavers of PSA and other draconian laws with­out going through their creden­tials and social standing, age or gender. In the garb of main­taining “law and order” they ruthlessly cage “antinational elements’’ to ensure the smooth sailing of their power mentors.

Syed Ali Geelani said that this is very unfortunate & disgusting that after arresting, district ad­ministration gives them incom­plete and deficient documents and when the relatives & fam­ily members approach judiciary, they are bluntly refused to be entertained, on the plea that the needed documents are not com­plete, thereby prolonging the al­ready snail’s pace of judicial pro­ceedings and this coordinated “conspiracy’’ of the bureaucracy has jeopardized & threatened the general psyche of both inmates as well as their families.

Geelani said that elderly people have a tough time in these bone chilling cold days in jails, sub-jails and police stations, but deaf and dumb rulers are paralyzed in their own luxuries and have left the helpless people at the mercy of “highly qualified” bureaucratic hatchery who suck even their last drop of blood. Pro-freedom leader said that after the barbarism and vandalism of police and forces, this executive class punishes us with the sophisticated & acknowl­edged manures.

Hurriyat (G) chairman said that we are receiving disturbing reports from the judicial houses where, the cases of these detain­ees are in final stage and near the completion of the three months and authorities smell the quash­ment of their PSA’s and detainees are about to free from a smaller to bigger jail, at that crucial time government prosecutor with all his elite qualifications, mortgag­ing his worth, mind and soul, just for petty salary, submits a fresh dossier of PSA to appease his masters. Doing so he brings the case of this hapless detinue to level zero and they have to start the whole processes a fresh, put­ting both the detinues and their families in severe psychological and financial stress and most of them are at the verge of mental breakdown many a times.

Geelani further said that hunt­ing of political workers, raiding the houses of their relatives and friends and arresting son for father, policy of the administration still contin­ues and those supposed to uphold the rules and regulations are them­selves crushing them under their mighty power and authority.

Giving fresh example of this vandalism, Hurriyat chairman said that district president of Teh­reek-e-Hurriyat Baramulla, Ab Gani Bhat’s almost all relatives are being raided. His son-in law Ab Lateef Bhat has been arrested from Umerabad and residence of his father in law has been ran­sacked and inmates harassed.

Geelani said that those on the path of their right mission can never be cowed down by such mischievous acts; rather these cowardice actions strengthen their resolve to fight the op­pressor and its aggression with more zeal and zest. (KNS)
