Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference has strongly condemned the “arbitrary and coercive” act of raiding the house of Huriyat leader, Adv Mohamad Shafi Reshi, and some members of business community by the NIA.
In a statement in Srinagar, Hurriyat Conference said, “It is folly being played by authorities to harass and scare the resistance leadership from representing the people’s sentiments and their just political struggle.”
Hurriyat said although nothing objectionable was recovered from the residence of Altaf Ahmed Shah, Peer Saif ullah, Ayaz Akbar, Raja Meraj-u-Din and Shahid-ul-Islam, still arbitrary measures are used to malign resistance movement and to implicate leaders in fabricated cases.
“People are mature enough to understand that it is psychological crackdown against resistance camp, just to make them scared,” the statement said.
Lashing at PDP, Huriyat said that their rhetoric and parroting about “Goli Nahi Boli’’ & ‘’battle of ideas’’ proved a “fraud and hoax” and the party “instead resorted to unbridled coercive force against unarmed civilians and facilitated NIA to implicate leadership in fraud and fictitious cases so that nobody dares to challenge their writ and object to their plans of genocide”.
Huriyat in its statement cautioned people and asked them to “remain vigilant about sinister designs of New Delhi and their henchmen in state”.
