Asserting that the people in the state of Jammu and Kashmir are pursuing a legitimate struggle, Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani Tuesday said that ISIS or Al-Qaieda has no role to play in Kashmir.
“People here are involved in a legitimate struggle and ISIS and Al-Qaida like ideology has no takers here,” he said while urging India to fulfill its pledge to the people of Kashmir.
“Finding a peaceful solution to Kashmir issue is our foremost motive,” Geelani said.
Syed Ali Geelani also addressed the mourners in Anantnag via telephone. He said that ours is a rightful struggle and have no intentions to snatch any part of India.
Geelani paid his rich tributes to brave hearts including Showkat Ahmad Lohar slain in Nowgam gunfight and added that the haughty approach and wrong policies of India has created a mayhem and is continuously instigating bloodshed in Kashmir.
Meanwhile, on his directions Huriyat assistant General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Sumji, Mohammad Yusuf Makroo and Sabzar Ahmad participated in funeral prayers of slain youth.
Referring to recent statement of Indian army chief General Rawat, Geelani alleged that under well thought plan our youth are being pushed to wall and compelled to choose other options of resentment.
“They have evolved an appalling situation in the state. Our youth are being killed and an attempt is made to slander our just freedom struggle,” he said.
“We have a definite goal and our struggle is disciplined and it is not pointless,” said Syed Ali Geelani.
“Well talented and well-organized leadership with a history of sacrifices is leading the movement and we are duty bound to carry this mission till its logical end,” Geelani added.
