Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani condemned the arbitrary and coercive act of raiding the house of resistance leadership and political activists and said that the people in state will pursue their struggle for freedom.
Geelani said that NIA have been given the task “just to drag and involve leadership into fabricated cases”.
Syed Ali Geelani said that during day long raids at the residences of Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Meraj-u-din Kalwal, the NIA team found nothing except their mobile phones, laptops and documents pertaining to personal properties.
He said, “NIA sleuths after questioning found nothing. It is rather strange that instead of making things public they have maintained a mysterious silence. The media without any reason and proof has unnecessarily hyped the issue.
“It is a well thought out plan to defame the movement and resistance leadership. These raids are deplorable and show the frustration of govt.”
Geelani further said, “Government is scared of the resistance leadership and the commitment of people. Their main aim was to discredit and defame resistance leadership but their motive was defeated.”
While commenting over the recent statement of Rajnath Singh, Geelani said, “People are not scared of these intimidations and until the Kashmir issue is resolved as per aspirations of people, they will pursue their mission with dedication.”
Syed Ali Geelani stressed upon the resolution of long pending issue through right to self-determination and said people will strive to fight for their rights till the issue is resolved in accordance to resolutions passed in UN.
