SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani has expressed deep sorrow over the death of 16 Amarnath pilgrims and several others injured in an accident on Srinagar-Jammu highway on Sunday.
Expressing his solidarity with the bereaved families, Geelani said increase in such accidents is very much concern for everyone.
He also paid rich tributes to militants killed in Tral and said, “Our youth lay their lives to end the age-old slavery of their nation, putting a huge responsibility on our shoulders to honour these sacrifices and take the movement to its logical end.”
Geelani accused authorities for creating “appalling” situations in the state and said they have set forth their strategy and are looking for excuses to create ‘90s like situation in the state to justify the use of the force against people.
On Geelani’s directions, a delegation of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat comprising Bashir Ahmad Qureshi, Umar Aadil Dar, Sajad Ahmad Pala, Sajad Ahmad, and others visited Tral and Pulwama and participated in the funeral of militants.
