While stressing over the priority basis assistance to the flood affected non-Muslims, Chairman Hurriyat conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani said: that “Pandits, Sikhs, Buddhists and Christians of the state are our brothers and it is our religious duty to take care of them in this hour of grief.”
According to a statement, Geelani said that the commendable rescue work of our youth who put aside all the differences and without any priority helped all the people trapped in flood waters, have added a new life to our centuries old tradition of brotherhood and hospitality and it also exposed the false propaganda of the India policy makers and Indian Media about the Kashmiris.
While presiding meeting of Central Relief Committee at Hyderpora, Geelani informed the participants about his meeting with a Pandit delegation from Ompora Budgam who have sought “cooperation of Geelani in ending the difficulties due to the recent floods.”
He further said that “Jammu & Kashmir is although a Muslim majority state so, they are like trust deposit with us and it is our duty to take care of them.” According to spokesman, Geelani instructed his activists to make a separate list of all the flood affected non-Muslim people of the state and help them on priority basis. “There should not be any kind of negligence in this work because it would be against the soul and spirit of Islam.”
