SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani, on Friday condemned the killing of 22-year-old Waseem Ahmad Lone, son of Nazir Ahmad Lone, resident of Nadihal Rafiabad.
“The hollow and tall claims of restraint by these forces are only to befool the common people, and today’s innocent killing testifies that their lust for blood has not suppressed yet,” he said in a statement issued here.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (G), referring to the employment and other incentives to the people, said that the subcontinent was “looming under the dark shadows of a possible human catastrophe as a result of persistent and institutionalized denial of the basic human rights”.
It said the “freedom-loving people” could never be cowed down by such “appeasing gimmicks”.
“Working for livelihood by people even in forced occupation is justified, but India’s mockery and its jingoistic politicians considering even this as a favor sarcastically try to humiliate us as a nation.” The conglomerate said.
“Let India end this forceful and unwanted occupation, we assure them that nobody from us will ever approach them for any perk and privilege. Our nation has been forced into the undemocratic and unethical subjugation and is fighting it for the last seven decades, leaving our three generations brutalized and maimed,” it added.
Hurriyat said that persistent “denial of this grave humanitarian crisis” by India has led to the political and social turbulence and instability, making the “whole populace frightened and depressed”.
“Whenever there is uprising for our basic and fundamental rights, India labels it as cross border infiltration and terrorism, making a lame excuse to curb it by force, thereby slaughtering and mowing down thousands of people and wiping away almost generations together,” it said.
Commenting on slapping of PSA on renowned human rights activist Khuram Pervez and his shifting to the Kotbalwal jail Jammu, the Hurriyat said, “India’s democratic fabric is so brittle and delicate that it can’t withstand even the voice of a human rights defender”.
