Like, Namaz, Roza, safeguarding scarifies of ‘martyrs’ obligatory: Geelani


Octogenarian Hurriyat patriarch Syed Ali Geelani on Friday while paying tributes to slain militants Basharat Ahmad Sheikh and Aijaz Ahmad who were killed in Sopore encounter on Thursday, said that the youth of Kashmir lay their lives to end the age-old slavery of their nation, putting a huge responsibility on our shoulders to honor these sacrifices and take the movement to its logical end.

Geelani, who continues to be under house detention, termed the freedom movement as obligatory like that of prayers and stressed on the people of Kashmir to illustrate steadfastness and persistence while following freedom struggle.

Ina statement issued on Friday, Geelani blaming India for its rigid and stubborn approach, said that their insensitivity and apathy is the sole reason for this unabated bloodshed. “Youth have no option but to resent this age-old slavery and take arms to defend their rights,” said Geelani.

“Their sacrifices won’t go waste,” Geelani said, and added that our sacrifices and struggle will bear positive results.

He said that this arrogance, haughtiness and persistent denial can’t hold water for long and India must come to terms with the writing on the wall.

Lashing out at Jan Sangh rulers in Delhi, Geelani said that their “fanatical ideology” is pointless and they won’t deter us from pursuing our mission nor will we surrender.
