Extending his heartfelt Eid greetings to Muslim Ummah in general and Kashmiri people in particular, chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani appealed people to celebrate the Eid with austerity and ‘according to Islamic principles’.

Reiterating his appeal for 30 minutes token peaceful protest demonstration after the Eid prayers against the Israeli terrorism in Gaza, Geelani said, “when we would be celebrating the Eid-Ul-Fitr with our families, we should not forget the infants and women of Gaza who are being cut off into pieces by Israel.”

Hurriyat patriarch said that though he is under house arrest since he landed in Srinagar, he is updated about the “sufferings of his nation”.

“Omer Abdullah government have although placed me under house detention from last four years but neither am I ignorant about the sufferings of my nation and nor am I unaware about the cunning policies of new government of India regarding Kashmir,” Geelani said.

“We should also not forget the hopeless parents, widows and children of those who were martyred in Jammu & Kashmir or who are in Jails or who were subjected to the custodial disappearance,” Geelani asked.

Geelani in his Eid message further said that the Muslim Ummah is passing through ‘most difficult phase and all the imperialistic powers of the world have everywhere got activated against them’.

“Besides Gaza, Muslims in Kashmir and Burma are also massacred like animals and the so called civilized world is maintaining silence on this situation,” Geelani said.

Taking a dig at Modi led government at New Delhi, he said that while following the RSS agenda in Kashmir, the government have not only formally started the process of “converting the Muslim majority of the state into the minorities but they want to eliminate the Muslim identity of this region and want to setup the mark of their idolatrous culture here”.

“On the one hand they have started to settle three separate cities for Pandits, settlement of west Pakistani refuges and abrogation of Article 370 and on the other hand to destroy the fragile environment and water resources of Kashmir, they are inventing new destinations for other Yatra,” he claimed.

Geelani alleged that India is following the Israeli policy in Kashmir and if this process is not stopped, then in future, Kashmiris have to face the same humiliation and bloodshed which the Palestinian people are facing.

“This situation demands that Muslims of the world should rise above the group and sect differences for the unity and they should formulate a joint strategy for their protection.”
