Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday said that the increasing braid chopping incidents in Kashmir has created extremely gloomy situation for the womenfolk.
“Forced and military occupation of India is the root cause of all miseries and problems and the authorities in New Delhi always applied its shrived tactics to suppress our sentiments, however, people while resisting these arbitrary measures, pursued their mission making, all their attempts a failure,” Geelani said.
In his recorded video message addressed to people, Geelani said that since last one-month fear psychosis has been created and people are facing threat to their dignity and honor. “People are reeling under constant fear and braid chopping incidents have created extreme gloomy situation for our sisters and daughters,” he said.
“Nothing good is expected from ruling elite and as such everyone feels scared about the safety and honor,” Geelani said, adding that although it was their moral responsibility to ensure safety, dignity and respect for every citizen, the authorities miserably failed.
Ridiculing authorities, Geelani said that instead of ensuring the safety authorities conceived their devilish tricks like “operation Catch & kill, Operation Ghost and now ‘braid chopping’ like horrible operation. “All these follies were aimed to break our resolve and suppress our freedom sentiments,” he said.
“They can’t break our resolve and all their deceit will come to a shameful end,” he said, adding that “I am sure we will defeat all their evil designs if we maintain discipline, constitute Mohalla comities comprising of vigilant youth volunteers and persons with credibility, to check this menace.”
“Any suspicious person if nabbed ,should be handed over to reliable and trustworthy committee members and his statement recorded, so that authorities do not get any chance to save these criminals and reproach any innocent against false allegations,” he said.
Geelani while addressing victims of braid chopping, said that “we feel and share your pain and agony you faced and we are also pained to see the oppression and suppression witnessed by victims.”
“I would have visited every such place to share your pain but I’ve been detained in my house for the last seven years and it is the reason that I can’t move out but let us repose our faith in Almighty Allah and seek his help and blessings to overcome this turmoil,” Geelani said, adding that “Almighty Allah is the only guardian and He only can save us from this turmoil and testing time.”
“We should review and renew our relations with Almighty Allah, as he only is sufficient for us,” Geelani said in his address and asked people to renew bonds of relation with almighty Allah through prayers and while reciting Holy Quran.
