Asked unionist politicians to shun their fraudulent and deceitful politics, Hurriyat conference led by Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday said that people in state while pursuing their rightful cause have presented unprecedented sacrifices, hence are fully aware about the situation.
Spokesman while referring to resistance movement and sacrifices presented by people said that “since 1931, six lakh people were massacred, properties worth billions destroyed” and added that “these sacrifices were not offered to support any particular party or dynasty.”
While criticizing former chief minister Omar Abdullah for his remarks against Geelani, spokesman said “hypocrisy and treachery is the trait of National conference. People and particularly youth are fully aware about the treacherous role played by NC leadership.”
“NC since its inception has been playing deceit and folly and people in state are fully aware about their role,” he added.
“The life and contribution of Geelani is an open book,” spokesman said and asked all pro-Indian parties and their leadership to study entire record of state assembly and see that Geelani has never accepted the state as an integral part of India.
Defining the role played by Muslim United Front and its participation in elections held in 1987, spokesman said that “Front in a civilised and democratic way of achieving freedom, participated in those elections, however through mass rigging, Indian authorities denied this democratic right and with the full support and blessings of New Delhi NC grabbed power, particularly for their folly and bullying.”
“Freedom movements are a sacred mission for legends and brave hearts, hence face hardships and suffer almost all their life,” he said and added “PDP and NC like parties follow power politics.”
Hurriyat (G) asked Omar Abdullah to explain about the “freedom mission”, his grandfather followed and “when did Geelani begged for a berth in power corridors.”
“The two characters evidently differentiates the role played by Sheikh Abdullah and Syed Ali Geelani, as even on the floor of assembly while pronouncing his stand, Geelani always acknowledged Kashmir as a disputed territory,” spokesman said and added that “Geelani dedicated his entire life for the sacred cause of nation’s freedom and even at ninety is pursuing this mission with full dedication.”
“Sheikh Abdullah played with the sentiments of his nation to secure material gains for his dynasty. We will never allow anybody to play with the sentiments of people,” spokesman said while hitting out at Omar.
