Expresses concern on desecration of ‘Hilali Parcham’
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday castigated what he described “mysterious” and “sick minded elements” for “maligning the freedom movement” and promoting a campaign against pro-freedom leadership and ideology of Pakistan.
Stating that Kashmir “movement” was indigenous in nature and had nothing to do any “organization with global agenda”, Geelani expressed concern over reports about desecration of “Hilali Parcham (flag carrying star and moon)” and “undesirable propaganda” against leadership.
He termed the “propaganda” as a well-organized plot and a misadventure aimed to create confusion and divert attention from dreadful situations in Kashmir.
In an apparent reference to ISIS, Geelani said they were “slaying innocents and desperate to turn Muslim world into wreckages”.
Stating that Indian authorities will take advantage of the situation, Geelani said that India while justifying its “arrogance and bullying” in state will portray “our freedom struggle as globally affiliated terrorism”.
“A few sick minded elements are promoting all this and unintentionally a few immature youths get swayed by this,” Geelani said.
He blamed anti -Pakistan elements for creating chaos and said that their depiction of Jihad is aimed to misguide innocent youth and make them aggressive against Pakistan.
Referring to chaos and infighting in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and other Muslim countries, Geelani said that Islam aims to build a society in peace, serenity, friendship, collaboration, altruism, justice, and virtue.
“Those people instead of serving the cause and liberating Palestine, Masjid Aqsa from oppressors are slaying Muslims, thus have no mandate to represent Islam and Muslim community.”
Blaming Washington and Tel Aviv for fomenting trouble and creating anarchy in Muslim world, Geelani said that Muslims were being used as fodder for this “mindless strife and infighting”.
Criticizing elements creating mess under the garb of this so-called “holy doctrine” in the state, Geelani said that they are hell-bent to create a new phenomenon and philosophy against Pakistan and resistance leadership in state.
Geelani asked youth to resist and resent “this trend and their sinister designs” and added that “we need to introspect and understand the devilish plans being floated by our enemies”.
“We have been facing immense hardships as such we can’t afford to import such senseless thinking,” he said.
Geelani also rejected the idea of calling UN resolution as un-Islamic and said that UN resolutions serve as “substance matter for global-level agreement and has been agreed upon by both India and Pakistan and guarantee the legitimacy of this issue and thereby verdict of people in state”.
He said that Prophet (SAW) too documented various treaties with Jews, Christians and other non -Muslim communities and accorded full honors to these agreements.
Stating that Islam and Kalima form the ideological basis of Pakistan Geelani said that despite a few flaws, Pakistan was a divine gift from Allah, and “those relying on negative propaganda against Pakistan are hurting sentiments of both Muslim community and Islam”.
