SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Thursday condemned the “poster campaign” against the pro-freedom activists especially Mir Hafizullah, Ashiq Hussian Narchour, Mohammad Shafi Wagay and Mushtaq Ahmad Khanday in south Kashmir.
In a statement issued here, the conglomerate termed it as the “moral bankruptcy on part of the administration, particularly police”.
“When brutality and cruelty of the armed forces and police has failed to gauge the resolutions and firmness of the people, they stoop so low that they started this poster campaign and announced a bounty on their head as if they are dreaded criminals and dacoits,” it said.
The Hurriyat termed it as “most unethical and ridiculous” that instead of facing them politically, government “at the authoritative command of their saffron partners” have themselves accepted their “defeat and frustration”.
Hurriyat (G) said that actions by the “so-called democratic and elected representatives” has almost changed the “significance and substance of democracy” in this part of world.
The conglomerate also condemned the “persistent, repeated harassment and vengeful vandalism” of the family members of Mohammad Yousuf Falahi Shopian and ransacking of their house by police.
“This has proved once again that police acts as a pigtail of the collaborators and tarnish further their already mutilated image,” it said.
“Had peace been accomplished by these crowdies, deceitful and fallacious acts of these perpetrators, then it would have been achieved long back, as India has been operating with these machinations for the last 70 years,” it said.
“But human, especially resistance, history is testimony to the fact that these malicious tactics by the forced occupiers has always fortified the will and vigor of the freedom lovers,” it added.
