People in general and pro-freedom camp in particular need to put a collective narrative against the government banning Jamaat-e-Islami, otherwise if we turn a blind eye to the onslaught on our basic and fundamental rights, the day will not be too far when we all will be kicked out of our residences to accommodate their majority, same way the Israeli Zionist have done in Palestine. This was stated by Hurriyat (g) Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani, commenting on the Gag of age-old religious-political organization Jamaat-e-Islami.
Condemning in strongest terms this “unethical and undemocratic” act by the rulers, quoting Hurriyat chairman, the spokesman said that falsely blaming on a recognized party is in itself a blot on the democracy.
He said that every political or religious party has their own narrative of the political instability and decade-old dispute of Jammu and Kashmir and they serve their ideologies within the contours of the law and Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir is propagating their manifesto accordingly as all others do. Those who can push their poor population to the flames of Nuclear war can go to any extent to retain power, Hurriyat chairman said.
Meanwhile, Geelani was shocked and saddened to hear about the tragic road accidents at Udhampur and Kishtwar where about 13 people lost their lives and dozens got injured.
He said although death has a fixed date and time and every life has to perish, such tragedies are unfortunate and shocking.
He prayed for eternal peace of departed souls and wished the injured, speedy recovery. He also condoles to the bereaved families for their irreparable loss.
Geelani also condoled the demise of mother of Ghulam Qadir Bhat (Gushi Kupwara) who is languishing in jail for the last 15 years. Hurriyat chairman said that we share the grief with bereaved family and pray for eternal peace of deceased and courage for the family to bear this painful loss.
