Minorities in India are Treated IInd Class Citizens: Geelani, Condemns Jammu Killing



Strongly condemning the killing of an innocent person of the Sikh community in Jammu who were protesting the removal of the posters of their beloved leader by the police, Chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference (G) termed this police action as worst kind of “state terrorism”.  He said that protests happen everywhere in the world and to protest is the right of every person but Jammu & Kashmir is the only unfortunate region of the world where the “protests are silenced with bullets and atrocities”.

“Geelani Sahab questioned that where does it happen in the world that a human being is killed for demanding his rights? Killing of innocents and then project them violators and miscreants has become the norm of the state of Jammu & Kashmir,” a statement issued by the amalgam said Thursday evening.

He said, “the present communal government in India is an acute threat for the entire minority of this country and they are in hurry to accomplish their communal agendas.”

While remembering the Golden Temple Massacre on the 31st anniversary of the attack over the Darbar Sahab and Akal Takth (Golden Temple) in which hundreds of innocent Sikhs were brutally killed, Geelani expressed his heartfelt sympathy and solidarity with the Sikh community.

“Minorities in India are treated as second class citizens and their life, property, honour, dignity and even religious places are not safe here,” he added.

The pro-freedom leader said that although the India claims to be the big democracy of the world but this “claim is just a claim and it has no relevance with the reality, because the minorities in India are not treated equally and their rights are not delivered to them in a transparent way for which they are eligible by worth of being the citizens of this country”.

“Since Kashmiris are the subjugated and oppressed people and India have forcibly occupied their land and made them slaves, so we better understand the pain and agony of any nation, who are being oppressed and who are being treated like animals,” he further said. “Geelani termed the today’s killing of an innocent protester as cruel and barbaric and condemned it in strong words.”
