SRINAGAR: Reacting to the government of India’s statement to the Supreme Court that the situation in Kashmir is getting normal, chairman Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani, on Saturday said New Delhi “seems to be in psychological and mental imbalance”.
In a handout issued here, Geelani said that civilians were getting killed or injured in Kashmir when New Delhi made the statement to the court.
“If this is normalcy, then people at the helm of affairs at New Delhi seem to be in psychological and mental imbalance,” he said. “Isn’t the full pages of newspapers, daily writings of columnists, blood stained streets, deserted markets, fresh graves of martyrs and people’s flooding of streets in Jammu and Kashmir not enough to shake the conscience of the rulers in New Delhi?”
GoI’S NORMALCY ‘LIE’
The Indian government, along with its “local collaborators”, have started to “pour in money” and want to hire “their goons” and “paid puppets” to malign and defame the present uprising.
“This needs to be checked at the earliest,” he said, and slammed the policemen who threaten imams.
“These black sheep are once again warned not to test patience of the people who have decided to take this movement to its logical conclusion come what may,” he said.
On reports about the children being called to participate in India’s Independence Day, Hurriyat (G) chairman appealed to parents: “Isn’t your conscience hurt by such acts? How can you support those people whose hands are drenched in blood of our people and are responsible for blinding more than 378 innocents mostly kids?”
He also condemned the “cold-blooded murder” of Shabir Ahmad of Tengpora by DSP Yasir Qadri and also the killing of Riyaz Ahmad of Chatabal.
“This has once again proved that our lives, honour, culture, and even dignity are unsafe with India.”
Meanwhile, Geelani said banks in hospital came under essential service and no one has been asked by the pro-freedom leadership to ask them to stop working. He was referring to the reports about a burqa-clad woman asking the bank at SKIMS to stop working.
He also addressed public gatherings at Kulgam, Warpora, and Chee of south Kashmir over telephone, the statement said.
