Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani in his appeal to German ambassador, Michel Stenier on Saturday has urged to review its decision of organizing cultural programme proposed in Srinagar on September 7, where .
Geelani said that any sort of activity related with politics, diplomatic, cultural or sports will have an adverse effect over disputed nature of Jammu and Kashmir and added that incidences of violation of human rights may go in the background.
“We therefore wish,” said Syed Ali Geelani, “that Germany should play a responsible role and stay away from any such move that may effect the noble cause of people in Kashmir.”
While referring to year 1983, Geelani said, people of Kashmir opposed international cricket match that was organized between West Indies and India and added people have similar reservations with regards to cultural programme proposed to be organized on September 7.
Syed Ali Geelani reminded German ambassador that in year 2004, visiting European Union delegation while commenting over the grim situation in Kashmir, had declared it a beautiful Prison and supported the Kashmiri cause. “Therefore, it is not suitable in any case for a responsible member of European union to organize a cultural programme for a selected gathering, for their entertainment and ignoring the sufferings of inmates of this beautiful jail,” Geelani said.
Geelani said German government will prove that it is a responsible state and does not legitimize the “atrocities being perpetrated by Indian forces.”
