Terming the killing of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat activist Sheikh Altaf-Ul-Rehman as an irreplaceable loss, Chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani Wednesday called for holding of ‘funeral prayers in absentia’ for Sheikh Sahab at every district headquarter on 12 June Friday and a peaceful protest demonstration for half an hour after the Friday prayers against this “brutal murder”.
“We had earlier expressed our apprehension that a new phase of “Ikhwani” culture and target killings of the pro-freedom leaders and people will start in Kashmir and today the martyrdom of Shaikh Altaf have validated our statement,” an amalgam statement quoting Geelani said adding, “It was in the backdrop of the statement of Indian defiance minister and the circumstantial evidences.”
Geelani, however, said, “this new plot against the pro-freedom people of Kashmir will met the same fate which it met in 1990s and it will, Insha Allah, prove a temporary phase.”
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (G) expressed its surprise and sorrow over the role of few people “having ill-mentality who have every time tried to infect the freedom struggle of Kashmir with their poisonous thinking and had always tried to spread anarchy and disorder”.
“These people even today are trying to create confusion and chaos among the common masses by using fake identities over the social networking sites like Facebook and are targeting the Islamists and pro-freedom personalities just out of hatred and spite,” the statement said without naming anyone.
“These are those people who in 1990s used to gain pleasure from the killing of the Jama’at-e-Islami members at the hands of the Ikhwanis (government gunmen) and used to term that terrorism of the Ikhwanis as the group clashes. These ill-minded people used to term the clashes with the Ikhwanis as the ‘war of monopoly’ and were holding Mujahideen responsible for all that,” it said.
The statement further said that these people have once again begin to “play the same role of making the conducive atmosphere for the Indian policies of killing the pro-freedom and Islamist people in the Kashmir and intentionally or unintentionally they are providing justification for these policies”.
“Hurriyat Conference is fully aware about the negative thinking of these few people and it is a proven fact that the existence of the Islamist people is intolerable for them and despite so much make-up, they are unable to hide their hatred. They have constructed a fake world around them and are misunderstanding that the whole world runs according to their thinking. Hurriyat Conference explains that in whatever shape and in whichever character are these people active, they are not hidden from us and if their poisonous thinking becomes the reason for any other killing, we will be left with no other option to expose them,” the statement concluded.
