Hurriyat (g) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday suspended one of its constituent party, National Front from basic membership of Hurriyat conference. The suspension will come into force with immediate effect in Srinagar and Hurriyat chapter of Azad Kashmir, the statement said.
“People in Kashmir are following movement likewise they are performing their other religious obligations,” said Geelani.
While referring to a video clip telecasted by an Indian TV Chanel, Geelani said, “attempts are being made to defame our cherished movement”.
The press statement said, “We summoned all constituent members including Nayeem Ahmad Khan to facilitate him to keep his view point before executive body, however police authorities did not allow leaders to hold a meeting in Hyderpora.”
Geelani said, “though Nayeem Khan in a press conference has raised questions over the veracity of the said clip however in pursuance of special powers as chairman and until the clarification of all related issues comes to fore, his membership will remain suspended. It is my duty to tell my people that Indian media is biased and not trustworthy. They are working for Indian agencies and as mouthpiece for fanatical forces.”
Geelani while ridiculing India media for their partial and biased reporting said, “they are promoting colonial mindset and are hellbent to bring bad name to the leadership and defame ongoing freedom struggle.”
The statement also said, “It is a deliberate attempt to mislead international community and a part of their frivolous game to involve Pakistan.”
Geelani admitted, “no doubt Pakistan is a prime party to the issue and supports us on political and moral grounds. It is not possible for India to implicate us as ours is an indigenous movement and damaging propaganda won’t have any adverse effect over its credibility.The uprising in 2016 was not pre-planned, nor instigated by Pakistan.
It was a spontaneous reaction to commander Burhan Wani’s killing. During five months long uprising, people braved pellets and bullets. They were massacred and even scores of youth sacrificed their eyesight. People are not doing all this just for fun but it is a sacred sentiment and passion that they follow.”
Blaming Delhi for continuous bloodshed, Geelani said that their stubborn attitude is root cause for prevailing mayhem. “We need resources to combat military might of India and mostly we raise all funds from local sources to pursue our movement,” said Geelani.
