KL Report


While terming the recent border skirmishes in Keran sector as mere drama, the senior separatist leader and chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani said, “India intends to invade Azad Kashmir and for this they are making excuses and India on one pretext or the other is trying to discredit the ongoing freedom movement and make Pakistan accountable at international forum.”Pic

Geelani while referring to Keran operation said, “it lasted for 15 days and it was stated that 22 out of 40 insurgents were killed who had invaded and occupied the border  village, however, till today neither it has been confirmed nor dead bodies were recovered.”

As per the party spokesperson Geelani while speaking in an Eid Milan function organized by Tehreek e Hurriyat, has said that “until the Kashmir dispute is resolved in accordance with the aspirations of the people, borders will remain tense.”

Geelani in his address has rejected Tashqand, Shimla and Lahore declaration and said “people of Kashmiri were not party to these and consequently we are not bound to accept these agreements.”

As per a statement Geelani while reiterating his demand for self determination and  resolutions of Kashmir issue in accordance with UN resolutions, said that “India with arrogance of its power want to suppress our freedom struggle” and added “we are committed and pledge  that we won’t surrender or give up our struggle.”

While referring to candidature of Narinder Modi for Prime minister ship of India, Geelani has expressed his surprise and said “it is surprising that a man responsible for thousands of killings is being projected as candidate for PM of India.”

Geelani in his address in Eid Milan Party referred to hanging of Mohammad Afzal Guroo, Kishtwar, Markundal, Gool, Gagran Shopian incidents and said that people of Kashmir are facing worst type of state terrorism and added that India with all its might is hell-bent to suppress the people and ongoing freedom movement.

Criticizing the continued detention of Masarat Alam Butt, Mir Hafiz Ullah, Mohammad Shaban Dar, Mohammad Yousuf Falahi and other political leaders, Geelani said that it is a worst type of state terrorism and while commenting over the arrest of prominent Separatist leader Shabir Ahmad Shah, Geelani said that he was arrested in presence of Omar Abdullah and it has authenticated our claim that police authorities have resorted to hooliganism.

Commenting over the statement made by Omar Abdullah in Regional Judicial Conference, Geelani said that it is irony that that they themselves do injustice and how can they plead for justice when they deny the same to the people. “The grave injustice being done with us is that we are being deprived of right of self determination. They have made us their slaves and India has looted natural resources of our state. They are promoting waywardness, alcohols, drug addiction” and while lamenting at state police for their role, he said they are behaving like “criminals.”

“They have made the detention of youth as business and convict them on fabricated charges,” said Geelani and added, “Police release them after charging a large sum as ransom from the detained youth.”

Referring to the Hajj sermon of Imam Kaaba, Geelani has said that he only mentioned the violence committed by individuals or groups and did not made any mention about the excesses perpetrated by the states. “The state terrorism is the main reason for large scale killing of innocents and added that whosoever is involved in brutal killing of innocents is beyond doubt a crime against whole humanity.”
