Hurriyat (g) Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani while strongly condemning the highhandedness and criminal assault on the shopkeepers in Shimla, a few days back, said that we always believe that Kashmiris are neither safe in their houses nor outside the state and such incidents stand testimony to our narrative.
Geelani in a statement said that our students in different parts of the country are harassed for one reason or the other, and most of them, failing to resist the humiliation, leave their education and return home as their safety is not ensured.
Hurriyat chairman said that authorities are scared of the conscious youth, but now people who go outside just to earn their livelihood are also vandalized, beaten and their shops ransacked along with the goods worth lakhs.
The pro-freedom leader said that these incidents should serve as an eye opener for those propagating the communal harmony and dignified life of minorities in India. He said that encouragement and patting from the administration, criminal silent affirmation by the police and garlanding such fanatic elements have multi-folded these inhuman and immoral acts.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat condemned the “arrest and torture” of the Tanzzem Azadi’s president Abdul Samad Inqlabi and described it as the highhandedness and lawlessness.
