Terming the Enforcement Directorate Notice to Syed Ali Geelani as biased and unrealistic, Hurriyat (G) Conference said that authorities have crossed all democratic, constitutional and moral limits to satisfy their hatred against Kashmiries in general and leadership in particular.
The spokesman in a statement said that Hurriyat has made it clear long ago that during 2002 Income Tax raid at the residences of Syed Ali Geelani and his close relatives, no currency or any objectionable material was recovered and it was conveyed to the concerned authorities through his counsel.
Hurriyat said that Geelani and his party has a clear and open stand viz-a-viz Kashmir that this long-standing dispute needs to be resolved peacefully in accordance with wishes and aspiration of its people. Harassing Hurriyat chairman and other pro-freedom leaders through its agencies and putting them under the sponsored media trail, “autocracy” will fail today as they have in the past.
Hurriyat said that knitting these imaginary and baseless stories and publicized through its “arrogant” media, is nothing but to pressurize Geelani to toe their line.
Hurriyat further said that Geelani is not alien to jails, interrogations, tortures and solitary confinements and he has proved his mettle by his steadfastness and determination and he is not scared of such threats.
