Asiya endorses Geelani’s strike call

Srinagar: Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM), Asiya Andrabi Wednesday endorsed strike call given by chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani against the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Srinagar on Thursday.
“Kashmir is a Muslim dominated region and what is the logic of celebrating Dewali in Srinagar?” Asiya said in a statement issued here.
“It is actually a Hindutva agenda by virtue of which attempt is being made to demonstrate Kashmir as India’s integral part. Previous visit by Indian leaders were purely political but this visit is more significant as it is being done in religious context,” Asiya said in a statement issued here.
She said that the visit has exposed Indian objective towards Kashmir and urged people of Kashmir Valley to observe exemplary strike on October 23, the statement added.
