SRINAGAR The Hurriyat Conference (G) Tuesday castigated the state forces for committing excesses on the people in Kashmir.
The separatist conglomerate held its Majlish Shoora (Executive Council) meeting here which was presided over by its Secretary General, Ghulam Nabi Sumji. The meeting was attended by the heads and representatives of the constituent parties of the amalgam.
The meeting discussed various issues including the prevailing most critical situation of the state. In the meeting, a grave concern was expressed on the attitude adopted by forces, which have been instrumental for the prevailing volatile situation in Kashmir.
In his presidential speech, Sumji said, India is using its military might to crush our genuine movement by killings, vandalizing of properties, ruthlessness and arrests spree against the people of Kashmir.
Such intriguing and vile acts of repression have failed in the past to bend the people and in future any such pressure tactics by India shall meet its own end, he said.
He added, the present armed struggle against the Indian subjugation is a sheer reaction of our educated youth against the Indian barbaric and inhuman attitude and their deceit, arrogance and persistent denial of realities. It is not a hobby of our youth engaged in an armed struggle but a reaction of Indian military occupation on Jammu and Kashmir.
Hurriyat (G) leader while highlighting the need for a peaceful settlement of Kashmir issue said, the coercive measures, killings, detentions and suppressions will yield nothing and will instead lead to devastation. Indian leaders should accept the ground realities and should be realistic in their approach for the peaceful settlement of this long standing dispute.
He urged upon the people to stay away from the Panchayat elections at any cost as they did it in Municipal elections and said that it has been used as a tool of subjugation by Indian in international level and also it is a deceit against our martyrs who are sacrificing the precious lives.
Hurriyat (G) Secretary General appealed the UN and the civilized member countries of the world to take cognizance of the prevailing gruesome situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
