Expressing his strong resentment over the economic blockade threat of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Chairperson All Parties Hurriyat Conference (g) Syed Ali Geelani Sunday appealed the world community to come forward to protect the “Kashmiri people from the terrorism of the communal and pro-government organizations”.

He said, “the economic blockade of the Kashmir will have very serious consequences and the situation will be out of control for everybody.”

A statement issued by Tehreek-I-Hurriyat quoting Geelani said, “all the natural routes of Kashmir connecting it with the outer world are being occupied by the Indian occupational forces and they have been closed. And now the communal and fascist forces want to shut this temporary road too which connects Kashmir with India.” “This is the only way left for Kashmiris due to the Indian occupation through which they trade and communicate with the rest of the world and the communal people want to block that route too,” Geelani said.

He said that the economic blockade of Kashmir will create serious situation here and the human population of Kashmir will heavily suffer due to the lack of food items and medicine.

Geelani further said, “the policy makers of India and its allied communal groups have nothing to do with the miseries of the Kashmiri people, they are only interested with the land of Jammu & Kashmir and nothing else.”

“Hurriyat chairperson, however, cautioned that if the communal forces enforced any type of economic blockade to Kashmir, a public movement will be started against that and the people will protest this act of terrorism on roads and will aware the international community about the serious situation of Kashmir,” the statement said. “The BJP supported coalition government has brought miseries and difficulties for the Muslim majority population of Jammu & Kashmir and they are being harassed and abused in every possible ways.”
