Blaming the government for kidnapping Hurriyat leaders and lodging them at unknown destination in New Delhi, Hurriyat (G) Chairman, Syed Ali Geelani called it sheer political vendetta.
In a statement issued here, Syed Ali Geelani expressed deep concern over the kidnapping of ailing Hurriyat leader, Peer Saif Ullah and deteriorating condition of Shahid-ul-Islam and added that authorities are reluctant to disclose their whereabouts.
Syed Ali Geelani while lamenting at “careless” approach of state authorities and the NIA said, “They stand responsible for their negligence if any untoward happens to these leaders.
Geelani said that Saif Ullah is suffering from brain tumor and though he has undergone surgery for said ailment, however he was under continuous medical supervision as he is suffering from persistent headache.
“Kidnapping by NIA can prove fatal for his health,” Geelani cautioned.
Lashing at state administration, Geelani said that they want to gain favors for these arbitrary actions from their masters in New Delhi and are creating a sense of scare.
”We will fight them tooth and nail,” added Geelani.
They won’t cow down our passion and people in state won’t deter from their mission and will pursue their fight for freedom right with persistence, said Geelani.
These undemocratic tactics will not dissuade pro-freedom people from supporting and promoting the just cause of freedom from Indian hegemony, added he.
Geelani said that NIA is being used as a war weapon against pro-freedom leadership and local henchmen are facilitating these arbitrary measures and added that their main aim is to gag genuine voices so as to realize their dream for Hindu Rashtra and bring changes in demographic status of state.
Despite all these overt and covert measures, people are committed and determined to carry mission of freedom till the issue is resolved as per their aspirations, said Geelani.
Commenting over the notices issued to 37 more persons by NIA, Syed Ali Geelani said that it won’t dampen our resolve nor it will cow down our passion and spirits.
Kashmir issue is clear and unambiguous, said Geelani and added that, it is a reality and international community stand witness to the fact.
