Terming the statement of Omar Abdullah as ‘ridiculous’ and ‘meaningless’ in which he had said that the youth should shun the path of violence and adopt a alternate way for the struggle, chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani said that on the ‘directions’ of masters in New Delhi, Omar Abdullah has ‘closed’ all the options and doors of the political struggle in Jammu & Kashmir and by banning the political activities in the state.
“Government is itself encouraging the situation of political uncertainty and instability here,” Geelani said in a statement on Thursday.
He said that it is India which is “using gun for the resolution of Kashmir issue and have deployed 7.5 lakh army, one lakh police, 26 thousand VDC personnel and dozens of secret agencies in Kashmir to silence the just and genuine political voice of its people”.
Geelani, the statement quoting him, termed, “the propaganda that due to the boycott call of the Pro-Freedom leadership, BJP will come into power and they will unleash atrocities on the common people as meaningless.”
He said, “Kashmiri people have gone through the extreme tyrannical regimes of National Conference and PDP but due to their local character, those atrocities were not noticed at the international level while as due to BJP coming into power this delusion will end and world will better understand the reality of the Kashmir dispute that how India is suppressing Kashmiris for its forced occupation and it is not the elected government of the local people but it is the military rule of India over Kashmir.”
Addressing the workers and activists, on the completion of the 10 years of political career of his organization Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, Geelani said that the creation of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat was not an “another addition in the number of already existing organizations, but the creation of this party was the need of the hour and its main purpose was to maintain the level and quality of the ongoing freedom struggle of Kashmir and to transfer this movement to the new generation in its real senses”.
According to the statement, Geelani said, “after the 9/11, the political military general of Pakistan Parvaiz Musharaf had started a new movement regarding Kashmir which was supported by some quarters within the state, so the need of the hour was to unite such a voice which will represent the real wishes and aspirations and sentiments of the Kashmiri people.”
While shedding the light on the goals of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat i.e “Islam, Freedom and Unity”, Geelani said, “we were also opposing the repeating of the history of 1938 when the struggle of Muslims of this state was renamed with the non-Islamic ideologies like Secularism and Socialism. Another goal of the creation of the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat was to work for the establishment of the Islamic system of justice in Kashmir after the freedom.”
The creation of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, the statement said, “was an open and clear message that Kashmiri will not accept anything less than complete freedom”.
While shedding light over the goal of Unity, Geelani urged Muslims to rise above the differences of Shia-Sunni, Davbandi-Barailvi and Ahalhadees-Hanafi and said that the largest terrorist country of the world is Israel.
The statement added that in the function, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat general secretary Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai gave a complete introduction of the organization while as Abdul Majeed Zargar, Khurram Parvaiz and Engineer Anwar Ashai participated in the function as the speakers and presented their views about Tehreek-e-Hurriyat.
