Rejecting any possibility of submission before the government, Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday termed the “fresh spurt in the character assassination” campaign launched by the NIA, against the resistance leadership as a brazen plot to prolong the illegal and unjustified detention of the said leadership. Hailing the exemplary and praiseworthy role played by veteran pro-freedom leader, Syeda Asiya Andrabi and her family, Geelani condemned the sinister designs of NIA to lodge a baseless case against her.
The spokesman said that it is the well-thought-out ploy to defame leadership on flimsy and fabricated charges. This is a “vicious character assassination campaign of NIA” and it illustrates the frustration of authorities, said he and advised authorities to take a lesson from its own history of freedom struggle against the Britishers.
Hurriyat chairman also affirmed history of all revolutionary movements of the world, saying history bears testimony to this fact that any indigenous popular movement for the right to self-determination has never been defeated or eliminated by forces or whatsoever. The veteran Hurriyat leader while emphasizing to shun the path of vengeance, character assassination, of resistance leadership of high respect and dignity and to prolong their unjustified detentions, said,” it is better to resolve the long pending Kashmir dispute for peaceful and prosperous future of the sub-continent which has virtually turned a nuclear flashpoint.
