Handwara Killings: Geelani Rejects Government Probe; ‘Probes are Mere Eyewashes’



Hurriyat Conference (g) chairperson, Syed Ali Geelani condemned the Handwara bloodbath wherein another boy was killed by forces on Wednesday and injured women succumbed to her injuries.

He called for a complete shutdown across the Valley on 14th April tomorrow and appealed people in general and Imams and Khateebs in particular to protest on Friday after prayers and to take pledge for “taking this noble struggle to its logical end”.

Geelani termed the killing of innocents as “the worst kind of state terrorism” and has rejected the probe or inquiry ordered by Ms Mehbooba Mufti government.

He held Mehbooba Mufti responsible for such heinous crime and said, “people of Kashmir have seen many such committees and probes that end ended up in mere eyewashes in the past as well.”

Terming, the statement of army general where he expressed the regret on killing is just a “cruel joke”, Geelani said, “these trigger happy forces massacred people of Kashmir since decades.”

In his statement to KNS, he lambasted the Indian media the way it turned blind eye on such incidents and even not bothered to show captioned view on such “brutal killings by Indian forces”.
