‘Rejecting the UN report is nothing but arrogance of power’, Geelani says


Hailing the recent report on gross human rights violations by government forces, issued by United Nations Human Rights Division, All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani said that although government atrocities have crossed all the limits and are continuing unabated for the last 70 years. It is for the first time that UN has realized the gravity and severity of this grave and grim situation.

He said that this world body has testified our stand that forces under the undemocratic and unethical shield of legal impunity continue the violence in Kashmir, with bullets, pellets, torture, rape and humiliation.

Hurriyat chairman has further said that if the iron fist and “military might” is not stopped, people of the state will have to face tougher and harsher days ahead.

Syed Ali Geelani said that rejecting the report by India is nothing but arrogance of power and “military might” because in the age of modern and latest technology nothing remains hidden for the sharp eyes of the lenses, which displays even the minute details of the incident.

He said that we are not surprised by the Indian rejection as they have been in denial mode for the last 7 decades, but world recognizes the ground realities and day to day atrocities in this land and Indian denial carries no weight.

Hurriyat chairman appealed UN rights body to take serious note of this brazen denial of facts and pressurize the government to abide by the universal obligations and fulfil long pending UN resolution on Jammu and Kashmir to pave a way for permanent peace and prosperity.

Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani once again expressed grief over the killing of renowned journalist and editor in chief of Rising Kashmir. He said that it was shocked to hear the tragic news of this gruesome incident. He said that our faith teaches us that killing of an innocent is equal to the killing of whole humanity and it is unfortunate that our elders have to shoulder the coffins of their youngsters on daily basis.
