Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani has strongly condemned the summoning of his younger son Dr Syed Naseem Geelani by NIA and said that rulers and its agencies have stooped to the lowest level of moral and ethical bankruptcy, which no sane person can even think of. He said that we have explained our point of view in closed doors as well as in open public.
The spokesman said that hatred and witch-hunt against Kashmiries are at its peak outside the valley and most of the Kashmiris have been threatened, tortured and dragged out of their residences, educational institutions and hostels, forcing many of them to return home leaving their studies and business. In such a charged atmosphere common Kashmiri feels unsafe and relatives of pro-freedom people will surely be targeted and in such a disturbing atmosphere we can’t afford to risk the life of anybody travelling out of the valley.
Hurriyat chairman said that if questioning anybody including my son is must they can do so in the valley.
He said that if Delhi rulers treat us as lawbreakers and want to clarify their doubt’s, I once again offer myself for such questioning and my past more than 50 years political career stands testimony to the fact that all the agencies, overt or covert, are well aware of my political stand.
The pro-freedom leader said that I have been facing atrocities, curbs, jails, interrogation by the authorities for the last 7 decades and how can they even think of any compromise by me using such mean and childish actions of threatening and humiliating my children.
He said that I have consciously and willfully adopted this torturous and thorny path of perusing the movement for the basic and fundamental rights of my nation, and no power on earth can deter me from this holy mission.
Hurriyat chairman said that such manoeuvring, much hyped-drama and sensational media narratives may have electoral dividends for the ruling class, but can never lease their stay for too long.
Meanwhile, Geelani paid tributes to slain militants killed in Tral encounter. He said that only the arrogance and deceitful attitude is responsible for this unending “bloodshed” and we as a nation can never compromise with this sacred mission.
