He said that 8 lakh army with the help of local forces have failed to curb and contain the freedom sentiment of the people for almost 7 decades and now in the last one month killings, bloodbath and massive peaceful protests in every nook and corner of the state demanded the serious and positive approach from the Delhi Darbar to address the core issue in its originality but imperialistic forces always rely on their might and Indian rulers did the same today as well by calling more troops to crush the ongoing movement.
Geelani appealed the youth not to be misled by the false and cosmetic tactics of the “puppet regime” as these are just to hoodwink the global powers whom they try to convey that it’s the local forces that are in total control here in the state.
He congratulated the Hajj pilgrims for their holy mission but requested them no to start their sacred mission by meeting and shaking hands with government and political personalities whose hands are soaked with fresh blood of innocent youth.
“Show your maturity this time and uphold the moral values and ignore these killers at the time of departure and arrival of your holy journey,” he said while requesting the pilgrims for special prayers during Hajj for Islam and “Azadi of their oppressed nation”.
While reiterating his appeal for making success Monday’s Hurriyat programme, he said all the roads towards and around Civil Secretariat Srinagar, District and Tehsil offices throughout state should be blocked and it should be ensured that no employee is able to attend the office. “The Deputy Commissioners and all heads of the institutions are directed to desist from threatening their employees on phones to resume their duty,” he said.
