Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani Wednesday strongly condemned the killing of Handwara youth, Shahid Bashir by government forces and said that despite authority’s rhetoric about their concern for youth, New Delhi and their henchmen in state are carrying systematic genocide under a well thought out plan.
In a statement issued here, Geelani ridiculed authorities for their tall claims of providing “pen and computers to students’’ and said that it is just a political gimmick.
“The same authorities declared killing of 12th class student Shahid Bashir as “marvelous achievement’’ for their forces,” Geelani said.
Geelani while referring to thrashing incident in Degree college Islamabad and search operations in Sub-Jail Baramulla, said that, on mere pretext our youth are subjected to humiliation, inhuman assault and are beaten to pulp.
Lashing at New Delhi, Syed Ali Geelani added that they are engaging their coercive and arbitrary measures to cow down our spirits, thus aiming at to create grave yard like silence in the state.
Referring to statement of army General Hooda, Syed Ali Geelani said, that it serves an eye -opener for Delhi, substantiates our claim and carries a message that arbitrary and coercive measures are no solution to Kashmir conflict.
“We will never budge from our stand, said Syed Ali Geelani and hailing the resolve and resilience of people, added that no power on earth can deter us from pursuing our cherished mission for right to self-determination.”
