Declaring the program, Geelani said that youth, party leaders and activists will assemble at Hurriyat head office, Hyderpora, here wherefrom he would lead a protest march to submit memorandum against recent killings will be submitted to UN observers and added that memorandum aims to highlight the delay caused in the implementation of UN resolutions and subsequent political instability in entire south Asia.
He also expressed his deep concern over the continuous curfew in Shopian and said the people in besieged areas are facing enormous hardships and are at the verge of starvation .
In a statement, Geelani termed the ‘silence’ maintained by Omar Abdullah as ‘criminal act’ and ‘suspicious’
“It has proved that they least care about the common people and their sufferings. They just enjoy power and while taking into consideration the upcoming elections in 2014 ,they have decided to remain silent,” Geelani said and added that, “at this juncture they do not risk to annoy Delhi and said that they know that in case they discuss the Gool and Shopian Massacre they would lose and would figure among the rejected lot.”
“There is no option other than to resist and show resentment against this tyranny, otherwise the silence maintained would emboldened the Indian forces and would kill more and more people in an indiscriminate manner,” said Geelani.
Geelani also reiterated his call for protest demonstration after Friday prayers and shutdown on September 21
