“It is a cherished and patriotic mission,” said Geelani in a statement issued here, adding that “These youths are putting a huge responsibility on our shoulders. We are duty-bound to carry their mission to its logical end.”

Geelani said that people of the state are not war mongers but through peaceful means are urging India and world community to fulfil their pledge and resolve Kashmir dispute.

Blaming India for its “stubbornness and egoistic” approach, Hurriyat (G) chairman said, it is heart wrenching that precious lives are being lost because of prevailing uncertainty”.

Geelani hailed people for their exemplary valour and bravery, saying that it is praiseworthy that people while risking their lives are coming to the rescue of these “brave-hearts”. “They are resisting forces and facilitate safe passage for our youth and it serves an eye opener for those sick-minded who for petty gains are providing inputs to forces,” he said.

Geelani said those who strive for a scared cause, never die however achieve an eternal life and find a place in history. “They are sacrificing their lives for our future and their sacrifices won’t go waste or unnoticed,” he added.

Geelani urged people to boycott all upcoming elections, saying that any participation in these “sham” elections provides political leadership with an opportunity to mislead world community.

“The few people who vote in election dramas were not only committing an act of treason, their actions were also acting as oxygen for India in Kashmir,” Geelani said.

Geelani in his telephonic message to mourners said that any flaw or any type of support to government forces is misrepresented at the international forum by Delhi, the spokesman said

Referring to the huge participation of people in slain militants’ funerals, Geelani said that it should serve as an eye opener for India. “Let them realize that they have virtually lost their battle and now enacting election dramas won’t serve any purpose,” he said.

Referring to slain youth, Hurriyat (G) chairman said that most of those sacrificing their lives are highly educated and committed to the right cause. “We need to be aware of this and we are duty bound to safeguard their sacrifices and should desist from such activities which prove detrimental to our movement,” he said.
