‘Stubborn attitude, harsh measures won’t prove of any help’
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani, denounced use of brute force on students and teaching staff in educational institutions. The pro-freedom leader said, “We won’t tolerate mistreatment and will never allow anyone to play with their (students’) future”.
Reacting to the raids by government forces and thrashing of students of government polytechnic college, Geelani alleged that state authorities were pushing our youth to wall and compelling them to resent.
“It is ploy to ruin their future,” Geelani said, adding, that forces “provoked” students through their actions. Blaming the authorities for vandalism against students, Geelani said that authorities were “hatching a conspiracy against students. “They (students) are being detained and (authorities) are repeating Pulwama like events in other educational institutions”.
Referring to recent threats from Jan Sangh leaders, Geelani said that state affaires were virtually run by Indian forces and Delhi had “declared war” on people. “We are keeping close vigil over the situation. If the barbarity of forces is not stopped forthwith, authorities shall have to face consequences,” Geelani warned.
Commenting over the recent statements of Amit Shah and Ram Madhav, Geelani said that authorities in Delhi were ignoring the realities and following their “arrogant thinking and repressive measures”. “Stubborn attitude and harsh measures neither did any good in past nor it will prove of any help in future,” added Geelani. “Instead of submitting to brute force, it infused new spirit among people”.
Taking dig at “Jan Sang ideology”, Geelani said that there is no space for “their obsessive views in Kashmir and they can never change historical realities” of Jammu and Kashmir. “As a nation, we pledge that we will never budge, and will pursue our struggle till we achieve our destination”.
“In civilized societies, there is no space for these idiotic ideologies. Change is natural & a continuing process and erstwhile Britain and USSR stands witness to this fact that corrosion and suppression are short lived,” said Geelani. “India is following its arrogant policies and it will meet same fate”.
