All Parties Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday paid rich tributes to slain Danish Manzoor of Nadihal Baramulla.

The Hurriyat Conference condemned the use of brute forces to calm the protests.

“The martyrdom of our loved ones will soon bear fruit and by the grace of Almighty Allah and steadfastness of nation we will get rid of this brutal Indian occupation,” a statement issued by the Hurriyat Conference said this evening.

While commenting on a mass public gathering in Sogam area of North Kashmir’s Kupwara, the Hurriyat Conference condemned the “mischievous” action by police wherein “they circulated posters that this programme has been postponed”.

“Despite this, people reached the venue and a huge public gathering was organized,” the statement said.

Hurriyat Conference chairperson Syed Ali Geelani also addressed the rally telephonically.

Geelani appealed for unity and discipline and above all to seek the help and guidance of Almighty Allah.

“We need to rise above our personal egos and with unity and discipline, everybody has to contribute to the strength of this movement,” the statement quoted Geelani as having told the rally.

The Hurriyat Conference strongly condemned the arrest and shifting (to jail) of a 70-year-old religious and social personality of Sopore, Sheikh Mohammad Yousuf.

“Power has ‘illusioned’ these so-called rulers to the extent that even the sunken eyes and bending backs can’t melt their stony hard hearts. Could these ‘so-called saviours’ of nation peep into the eyes of this old man who was forced to shoulder the coffins of his two young and budding sons. These barbaric and inhuman rulers could introspect themselves that just to please their masters in Delhi, they snatch the only caretaker of the innocent and small orphans of his son,” the statement said.

Hurriyat has once again “warned these ruthless stooges that when the cries of these orphans will be replied their Delhi mentors can hardly come to their rescue”.

Meanwhile, the Hurriyat Conference has taken a strong note of “defying” the joint resistance leadership program in “some parts of uptown Srinagar especially Sanat Nagar By-Pass and adjoining areas”.

“These shopkeepers are once again warned that for how long the saffronised political opportunists will safeguard them. At last, you have to mingle with your own people. So don’t act as traitors otherwise you along with your political gurus on whose behest you dare to sabotage the on-going movement, will be wiped away like a straw,” the Geelani led Hurriyat Conference asserted.

The Hurriyat Conference, the statement said, expressed its deep concern about the reports in some areas “where some religious groups and personalities give the programs on their own”.

“Hurriyat (Conference) clearly denounces such groups and cautions them not to be tools in the hands of agencies to create confusion and chaos amongst the masses. People in general and pro-freedom youths in particular should nip such evils in the bud and discourage all these efforts at every level as they are nothing but to weaken the on-going uprising and playing in the hands of enemy, because such desperate attempts are the old and the trusted creation of imperialistic mind set,” the statement added.

Criticizing the use of forces against the fruit groves in Fruit Mandi Sopore, All Parties Hurriyat Conference (g) strongly condemned this “barbaric action from the police”.

“On one hand government is shedding crocodile tears on the daily financial losses and defunct industries and the other hand they harass and manhandle those who try to work. Beating and canning these growers, just for working according to the joint programme from resistance leaders, is only the highhandedness and arrogance of these uniformed personnel,” the Hurriyat Conference said. “Hurriyat hailed their courage and determination as they have stood against this tyranny, as such are the qualities of a live and conscious nation.”
