Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani while paying rich tributes to the three militants Waris Ahmed Malik of Arwani, Aijaz Ahmed Makroo of Qaimoh, and Shakir Hassan Dar, who were killed in two separate gunfights with the government forces on Tuesday in south Kashmir in a statement said, “Bloodshed on such a large scale should have acted as an eye opener for the world community and champions of democracy and human rights should have woken up to see with their own eyes that a small nations strives hard to achieve their basic and fundamental right for the last seven decades and has rendered great sacrifices in the form of life and livelihood, but government continues to be in denial mode and they only respond through the barrel of gun to silence every voice for freedom.”
Geelani in a statement said that our nation has to stand by this movement as our life, honour, culture, religion and even the land it at stake and if we remain contended with this slavery, everything will be snatched from us.
He once again appealed for a complete poll boycott of ongoing Panchayat elections and cautioned people that voting for anybody amounts to betrayal as these votes are used as affirmative verdict to hoodwink the international community.
Hurriyat chairman further said that those elected by our votes play a shameless role of puppets and obey every command from their masters, just to remain in power.
Hurriyat Conference (M) in a statement paid glowing tributes to three militants killed in two separate gunfights in Redwani area of Kulgam and Tral in Pulwama district and stated that the youth of Kashmir are sacrificing their lives for a great and sacred cause and it is our collective responsibility to protect these great sacrifices.
The Hurriyat spokesman in a statement said that it’s high time that the people of Kashmir stay united and show steadfastness towards the mission for which young boys are spilling their hot blood.
The Hurriyat spokesman in a statement said that under a well-planned strategy, the Kashmir’s land is turned red with the blood of young boys every day and that there is no denying the fact that this all is being done under a “planned genocide” wherein youth are the primary target.
The spokesman said that almost every day, people are shouldering the coffins of their young ones while as there is the ultimate level of fear prevailing everywhere in Kashmir especially in South Kashmir districts where people have been left at the mercy of forces. The spokesman said people are losing their dear ones while as houses are being blown up with high-end explosives used by the forces.
He said the level of ultimate fear looms large in every nook and corner of Kashmir and this all is being done to force the people of Kashmir and the resistance leadership into a submission.
The spokesman said that Kashmir is a well-acknowledged dispute at the global level and Delhi is trying using ultimate military might to change the nature of disputed status of the issue but time is a witness that all efforts to crush a genuine struggle across the globe have failed and that the peoples’ will has always prevailed.
The spokesman said that the solution to the Kashmir issue lies either in implementing UN resolutions or through tripartite dialogue with the active participation of people of Kashmir on board.
Meanwhile, the spokesman strongly condemned the arrest of senior Hurriyat leader Mukhtar Ahmed Waza and disallowing him to carry out his political activities terming it highly undemocratic.
