Congratulates Turkish president Erdogan
SRINAGAR Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Monday blamed Indian rulers for continuous bloodshed in state, saying we are not even allowed to mourn our slain youth.
In a statement, Geelani paid tributes to youth killed in Cheddar Kulgam and condemned the killing of Shahid Nazir Hajam and Shakoor Ahmad Dar and showering of pellets over peaceful mourners.
Lashing out at policymakers in Delhi, Geelani said they have set forth their strategy and are looking for excuses to create a 1990-like situation in the state to justify the use of lethal weapons against unarmed and innocent youth.
Our economy has always remained an easy target and it is their well-thought ploy to make every soul dependant, Hurriyat (G) chairman said.
He said Delhi wants to kill each soul in an occupied state and cripple our economy.
Geelani said Kashmir is not a law and order problem but a political and humanitarian issue. The military might cant silence us or break our resolve. If authorities think they can deter us from pursuing our birthright then they are mistaken, he said.
The repressive measures will prove counterproductive and it is better to accept the peoples decree for the right to self-determination, resolve the issue and accept peoples verdict. It will prove beneficial both for India and its people, Geelani said.
Meanwhile, Syed Ali Geelani has congratulated Recep Tayyip Erdogan for his success in the presidential elections.
Our long and painful walk to freedom demands and deserved more practical and concrete steps from every freedom-loving nation especially the collective forum of Muslim countriesso that there is an end to our sufferings and we are allowed to live an honourable and peaceful life, he said.
We are all praise for his moral support to our cause and hope Tayyip Erdogan will play a pivotal and impressive role for peaceful solution of Kashmir issue, Geelani said adding that New Delhis unabated repression and brutality has its imprints through length and breadth of the region and we as a nation have fought to our maximum to free ourselves, but we are still not able to achieve our goal of freedom.
Hurriyat (G) chairman said the main hindrance and bottleneck is New Delhis reluctance and arrogance of power on one hand, and the dirty and mean role of local turncoats on the other.
Indias brute occupation supported by local henchmen is augmented and encouraged by the criminal silence of Muslim countries, he said.
In these grim and tiring scenarios, any favourable voice from anywhere acts as a soother which cements our resolve and commitment to continue fighting for our long-cherished goal of freedom, Geelani said.
Malik asks UN to intervene to stop bloodshed in Kashmir
Blood of innocent humans is being spilled ruthlessly in Kashmir and this is the responsibility of United Nations to intervene and stop this bloodshed. During last ten days, about two dozen Kashmiris have fallen to the bullets of trigger happy Indians who at the behest of their political masters are engaged in this genocide, said the chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Monday.
A party spokesperson in a statement issued to GNS said that police in the wee hours of Monday today raided the residence of JKLF chairman and arrested him. He was immediately shifted to police station Kothi Bagh.
Malik in a statement said, Though for the last three years, blood of innocent Kashmiris is being spilled mercilessly but since last ten days, this blood bath has been speeded-up alarmingly and dozens of innocent Kashmiris have fallen to the bullets of Indian (forces).
Indian army, forces, SOG and police have speeded-up this bloodbath apparently at the behest of their political masters who want to take advantage in upcoming elections by killing more and more Kashmiris. What can be more atrocious than playing politics on human blood and tragedy and only fascists following the foot-steps of Hitler and Mussolini can do this horrible job, Malik said.
He said since last day of Ramadhan, a new phase of terror and oppression was launched by India in the name of disciplining common people.
Asking international community to intervene and stop Indian aggression on Kashmiris, JKLF chairman said, Recently, a heartening report was released by UN regarding human rights abuses in Jammu Kashmir. Today United Nations Humans Rights Council is in session at Geneva and suppressed Kashmiris are eagerly looking towards it. We want to urge UN human rights council to have a human heart and sympathetic look towards oppressed Kashmiris and intervene to stop ongoing genocide of Kashmiris by Indian forces.
He said it is imperative upon the UN to follow its positive report with concrete steps to help Kashmiris realize their self-determination and address the long pending dispute of Jammu Kashmir.
Expressing solidarity with those families who lost their dear ones during last few days, Malik said the pain and agony inflicted on these families is huge. We want to assure them that the whole nation stands behind them in this hour of grief and sorrow, he said.
