Hurriyat (G) Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday said that “our youth lay their lives to end the age-old slavery of their nation and for the right to self-determination.” In a telephonic address to mourners, Syed Ali Geelani paid glorious tributes to slain militant Umar Rashid Wani and reiterated his pledge to take the ongoing movement to its logical end.
The spokesman in a statement said that the blood of “Shaheeds” is precious than Haram-e-Paak and the people who bargain these sacrifices for their personal gains will definitely get punished for such deeds in the hereafter.
Geelani said that since past 71 years the nation has rendered unparalleled sacrifices, thousands were caged and brutally tortured, properties worth billions razed to the ground, sexual assault and rape used as a war weapon. But the government has not been able to suppress their emotions.
Stressing upon people in general and youth in particular, Geelani said that we need to strengthen our faith, avoid miss deeds and nourish the Islamic culture in our homes and society.
Geelani also urged people to boycott upcoming elections and asked people to exhibit steadfastness and keep away from elections. He said participation in these elections tantamount to “treason with the blood of martyrs”. Authorities are misleading world community by portraying people’s participation in elections as a verdict in their favor,” he said. It is prerequisite to convey a strong message to the world community that we pursue a cherished mission of freedom and in no way, justify, defend or favor these elections, said Geelani.
Appealing people to boycott every election, be it Panchayat, Assembly or Parliament, Syed Ali Geelani said that “it provides an opportunity to India to mislead world community”.
