Strongly condemning the continuous imprisonment of Mohammad Yasin Malik, Shabir Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar and Yasmin Raja for last seven days, Hurriyat patriarch Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday lashed out PDP-BJP combine for “caging” separatists”.
“Ms Mehbooba Mufti and her RSS colleagues are trapped in a misunderstanding that by caging the pro-freedom leadership, they will succeed in implementing the Nagpur agendas in Kashmir and they will face no resistance,” Geelani said in a statement issued this evening.
“Every Kashmiri understands that the Sangh Parivar with the help of PDP has started a dangerous war against their existence, individuality and their Muslim identity. Any carelessness on the part of Kashmiris at this crucial time will have serious consequences and they will become strangers in their own land,” he said.
While lashing out at the PDP ministers and MLAs, Geelani said, “they are becoming the facilitators of the RSS and the Sangh Parivar and are earning a tag of traitors for themselves and for their families for the few days of power. If any of them would have their conscience alive, s/he would have definitely asked his woman president that where is she taking them and what secret deal has she signed with Ram Madhav?”
“A few ‘Ikhwani’ type ministers of PDP are fully aware of the secret pacts with the Sangh Parivar and others are just following the orders and are playing a role of ‘silent spectators’,” he added.
The octogenarian leader said, “the RSS and the Sangh Parivar can’t become friends of anybody particularly with Muslims and that too a Kashmiri. They will use the PDP for some period and then they will find their place in dustbin.”
“The shutdown or the protest programs are not our hobby but it is the only option available with us to communicate our concerns,” he asserted. “The joint protest program of the pro-freedom leadership will continue and if the plan of proposed Sainik and Pandit colonies is not dropped, a joint resistance program will soon reach the people,” he added.
Appealing people to hold peaceful protest demonstration on 3rd June Friday and hoist black flags on this day, Geelani said, “it is the ‘Do or Die’ like situation for the Kashmiri nation and they can’t effort to ignore it in any way.”
