Srinagar: Chairman Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday said that those who have pinned any hope on Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s visit to Kashmir are living in a fool’s paradise as past seven decades of experience with India stands testimony to the fact that they were never sincere and realistic regarding Kashmir.
“Their visits are only symbolic just to hoodwink the International Community on one hand and befooling their own people on the other. They come to appease their men in uniform and paid collaborators on whose behest they unlawfully occupy our territory,” he said.
He said that they want to give this false impression that they care for people and have come to sooth our wounds.
“After martyrdom of Burhan Wani, Indian forces have crossed all the limits killing more than 55 innocent young Kashmiris, crippling for lifetime more than 4000 people and blinding over 200 people including minor kids. Indian Home Minister was watching this barbarism and dance of death and destruction by his so-called “Security Persons” but condemning apart he didn’t even mention it. Rather putting a blanket of white lies to hide these heinous and ruthless crimes,” Geelani added.
He repeated his old and withered blame against Pakistan that it is only he who harbors and helps this unrest here in Kashmir. “These Indian rulers never want to see the ground realities, they are speechless as more than 2 lakh people offering funeral of Burhan. They turn blind our the young and enthusiastic Burhan’s in every nook and corner of the state, they turn deaf to the throttling echo’s of Azadi in every Mosque and they even turn heartless on braving chests who dare bullets and pellets for the goal of libration,” he said.
“Had they been realistic they would have not forgotten the historical fact that the Pakistan is an important stakeholder viz-a-viz Kashmir and nobody on earth not even India with its military might can stop them.
‘The five-year-old Nasir of Kukarnag stands a living proof of barbarism and brutality where the innocent child has been tortured by putting a needle in his eye. Can anybody on earth imagine this?”
He appealed people that the India has created a ‘do or die situation’ for people and utmost unity and discipline should be exhibited to achieve the much cherished goal.
