SRINAGAR: Criticising the world community for its “criminal silence” over the situation in Kashmir, Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani on Sunday said the “insensitivity” and “unconcern” is the sole reason for the unabated bloodshed in Jammu Kashmir.
As per a statement issued here, Geelani paid tributes to slain militant Muzaffar Ahmad Naikoo alias Muzze Molvi saying our youth sacrifice their lives “to end the age-old slavery of their nation and are putting a huge responsibility on our shoulders to honour these sacrifices and take the movement to its logical end”.
Geelani said, “The world forums, which stand witness to our dispute, act as mute spectators, thereby legitimising and legalising the brutalities unleashed in this region for the last 70 years. Had these super powers acted to their tall claims, India could not have dared to continue its repression and peace would have been ensured since long.”
Geelani said youth are on the forefront of the movement “whether sacrificing their precious lives or livelihood or facing the hardships in jails”. “Our nation has used every democratic and peaceful means for about 40 years to fight this aggression but India has responded ruthlessly and without giving an ear to the aspirations and just voices, is negating the historical legitimacy of this dispute. This arrogance, haughtiness and persistent denial can’t hold water for long and India has to come to terms with the writing on the wall lest this unresolved and unaddressed volcano can erupt and burst anytime engulfing millions of people in this region,” he said.
