Terms Singh’s visits to Kashmir ‘hopeless, humiliating’
SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani, on Friday said that words like ‘Insaniyat, Jamhuriyat and Kashmiriyat’ do not suit the deeds of Indian home minister, Rajnath Singh.
In a statement issued here, Geelani said that New Delhi has proved its “Insaniyat” at every nook and corner of the state.
“They have mutilated the face of Insaniyat to such an extent that it has lost its meaning as well,” he said.
“Unabated killings, blinding scores of innocents, maiming people from 8 to 80 years, injuring and crippling thousands, ransacking houses and beating inmates, dragging young people from their bedrooms and beating them to death, arresting hundreds of youth across the valley are a few footprints of their so called Insaniyat here in Jammu and Kashmir.”
The pro-freedom leader said that “stalwarts” and “architects” of “their Insaniyat” have left no stone unturned to push Kashmiri people to the wall by “all means and might of their power and aggression”.
“They have been so ruthless and barbaric that human history hardly finds even the trace of such events,” he said. “In north Kashmir, especially Sopore and its adjoining areas like Hathlangoo, Botingoo and Warpora, a police officer, DSP Dilraj Singh, has been so notorious and mischievous in harassing the people that he even dared to desecrate the Holy Quran.”
Geelani said that Kashmiri people “as a nation” are the best example of “Indian democracy”.
“We have seen and bore the brunt of its Jamhooriyat for the last seven decades,” he said.
Geelani said the Singh’s twin visits were “hopeless” and “humiliating” for him as “he got no takers here in Kashmir except a few people paid and groomed by its own agencies”.
“On his visits he only fattened the bulk of its army, as he knows that this is the only tool with which we are holding the land of Kashmir. What can you expect from the people who have laws for cow protection but not humans, especially minorities mostly Muslims?” he asked.
Hurriyat (G) chairman appealed the youth to be “vigilant” and “disciplined” as “this movement” was going to “be precious with each passing day”.
“Our traders small or big are baring the main brunt and are at loss of thousands of crore daily. They offer these huge financial sacrifices consciously and willingly to see an end to the age old miseries and suffering of their brethren,” he said.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat Conference has condemned the arrest of Sehzad Ahmad, brother of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat District President Mir Hafizullah.
Hurriyat said the police was in no mood to mend their ways.
