Omar Shedding Crocodile Tears To Win People’s Sympathy: Geelani

KL Report


Terming Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s recent outburst in the state assembly over the killing of a Baramulla youth as “political drama”, Hurriyat (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani said the pro-India politicians were shedding crocodile tears to win sympathy of Kashmiris.

“If Omar Abdullah has no powers to save people’s lives, he should resign. If they have no authority and are powerless, why shouldthe MLAs sit in the assembly. They should resign without any delay”, Geelani said while telephonically addressing a procession at Baramulla.

Geelani congratulated the family of Tahir Ahmad Sofi, who was allegedly killed in firing by army in old town Baramulla on Tuesday, for refusing to accept the ex-gratia relief of rupees 5 lakh from the government.

“I salute the family for refusing to sell the blood of their son. It should serve as an example for all Kashmiris. I appeal people not to sell the blood of martyrs by taking part in elections and casting votes”, Geelani said.

Rejecting the probe ordered by the government into the firing incident at Baramulla in which the youth was killed, Geelani said “The government has given license to the forces to kill innocent people. We have seen hundreds of such FIRs, Commissions and Probes ordered. They are just an eye wash and a tactic to buy time”.

Terming the ongoing protests as a people’s movement for demanding the return of mortal remains Muhammad Afzal Guru and Muhammad Maqbool Bhat, he said the struggle will continue till their demands are met.
