SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani, on Thursday criticised the world community and human rights bodies for their “biased” role towards the situation in Kashmir.
In a statement issued here, Geelani said it is unfortunate that not a single word of condemnation was issued by the world community and those claiming to be human rights champions against the “Indian brutalities on oppressed Kashmiris”.
“If the same incident would have taken place in any other part of the world except the Muslim majority country, there would have been hue and cry from every corner of the world. Such biased approach towards Muslims is highly condemnable and inhuman in every respect,” he said.
Geelani also condemned the crackdown on pro-freedom leadership, imposition of curfew in Srinagar and Handwara, detentions, and vandalising of mosques and residential houses, terming it “worst kind of state terrorism”.
Hurriyat (G) chairman reiterated his protest call after Friday prayers across Valley and asked people to “take pledge to carry forward the noble mission till its logical end”.
“We have no choice but to show our commitment and resolve that we will never surrender before India. We have to fight till the last Indian soldier’s presence in our land,” Geelani said.
Meanwhile, Geelani expressed grief over the demise of elder brother of pro-freedom leader, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani. He prayed for the deported soul and extended condolences to the bereaved family.
He also condemned the shifting of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat worker, Abdul Hamid Parray of Hajin “who was taken from police station to unknown location and his parents are not informed about his whereabouts”.
Geelani demanded Parray’s immediate release.
