SrinagarSyed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik in a joint statement condemned the imposition of curfew & restrictions in Srinagar, Tral and other parts of Kashmir on May 30 to foil Tral Chalo.
Castigating state administration for putting curbs on political activists, imposition of curfew and arresting Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Mohammad Yasin Malik and other leaders, Syed Ali Geelani, in a statement today, said, The restrictions, crackdown against leaders and activists and clamping curfew are illogical. Indian forces are carrying genocide under well thought out plan, said Geelani adding, We are even bared to mourn over slain youth.
Terming it the worst example of state terrorism, resistance leaders said unwarranted and unjustified curbs on political activities give rise to chaos and uncertainty.
They are creating unnecessary hurdles in peaceful activities and are just misleading the world opinion,, the statement added.
Reiterating their stand the Troika said, Kashmir is not a law and order problem but a political issue for which people are peacefully pursuing their struggle for right to self-determination since last seven decades.
India with its military might is suppressing the genuine voices and consequent reaction from peaceful people are portrayed to serve their sinister designs, they said.
