While paying rich and glorious tributes to the two youth who were killed in an encounter with forces in Tral area of Pulwama by forces, Chairperson of Hurriyat Conference (g), Syed Ali Geelani Monday said that these “brave hearts of our nation are sacrificing their youth-hood for the liberation of this land and put down a heavy responsibility on us to protect these sacrifices and carry forward the freedom struggle in any way and at any cost”.

Syed Ali Geelani said, “the loss of precious human lives continue to occur due to the instable and uncertain political situations in Jammu & Kashmir and all its responsibility lies with the Indian government who instead of respecting the wishes and aspirations of the Kashmiri people are using rigid, arrogant and stubborn approach and want to continue their forced and illegal occupation here with the help of its military power.”

A Hurriyat (g) statement said that on the directions of Syed Ali Geelani, a Tehreek-e-Hurriyat delegation led by district president Pulwama Ghulam Mohi ud din Andrabi and tehsil president Jahangir Ahmad visited Tral and participated in the funeral prayers of the slain militants and paid rich and glorious tributes to them at the occasion.

“We are a peace loving nation and we don’t want war but India is pushing us towards the wall and they want to ride on our backs with the help of its military might,” Geelani said.

Geelani said, “this policy and approach has a natural reaction and our youths leave their schools, colleges and universities to pick up the gun. If India will not accept the ground realities regarding to the Kashmir and will not shun its rigid and stubborn policies, then this process will continue ant it can any time take a very ugly turn which will be out of control for everybody.”

Geelani said that the keys of peace in Kashmir lie in the hands of India. “They have only to show respect to the genuine demands of the Jammu & Kashmir people and give them a chance to decide their future which will bring peace, stability and tranquillity to the entire South Asian region.”
