Srinagar: Terming the “grief” of ruling National Conference and “happiness” of opposition Peoples Democratic Party as “meaningless and irrelevant,” the Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Monday said the “real success actually belongs to the pro-freedom people.”
He said election boycott by the majority of people has proven that “there are few days left with the pro-Indian parties in Kashmir and now they can’t fool the people for long by their wicked policies.”
“Very few people cast votes in the election for Indian Parliament, and PDP should never misunderstand it as their victory, because this is actually hatred and anti-national and anti-people policies of National Conference which have forced few people to vote for the main opposition,” Geelani said in a statement here.
While thanking the Kashmir people particularly youth for their “ideal election boycott,” Geelani said, “It is very pleasing that a huge majority of people listened to their conscious and boycotted the election drama despite tremendous pressure and force.”
“Kashmir people have proved that they have understood the negative impacts of this exercise and they are fully aware of India’s wicked policies of using this military operation in the name of elections in international forums against the freedom movement of Kashmir,” he said.
Geelani said that Omar Abdullah “should ask his own conscience in solitude and he should examine the reasons and circumstances for his party’s loss. If he will think with a cool mind then he can get the answer that after long 50 years, Kashmir people have now recognized the real face of National Conference and this party has vandalized the nation and unleashed worst kind of atrocities on Kashmir people which have hurt everybody here and everyone is feeling its pain and agony.”
Geelani said the National Conference has played a negative role in the history of Kashmir and “they pushed the state into slavery of India.”
Farooq Abdullah “backstabbed the freedom movement of Kashmir in 1996 and he has on record said that the youth should be shot instead of arresting them, because we have no space left in jails,” Geelani said.
“If Farooq Abdullah is the murderer of Shaheed Mohammad Maqbool Bhat, his son has also played a very important role in hanging Shaheed Mohammad Afzal Guru, thus keeping the tradition alive, and in 2010 Omar Abdullah killed 128 innocent students and detained about 3,000 youth in jails, which made the people to run out of patience and made them to hate this party.
“If Omar Abdullah still wants to know the reasons (for) his defeat then he should leave politics and try his luck in any other profession,” Geelani added.
