Pro-Indian parties luring youth: Geelani

‘Islam, freedom and unity in our folds can lead us to our destiny’

SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani on Sunday said that “pro-India parties are luring our youth and we should educate them on moral guidelines”.

“Islam, freedom and unity in our folds can lead us to our destiny and if the entire nation follows these goals, we will definitely achieve our destination very soon,” Geelani said in a statement issued after a meeting of Hurriyat constituents at Hyderpora.

The meeting was attended by the heads or the representatives of Muslim Conference, Tehreek-e-Insaf, Muslim Democratic League, Tehreek-e-Muzahamat, Islamic Political Party, Mass Movement, Kashmir Freedom Front, Tehreek-e-Khawateen, People’s Movement, Anjuman Shar-e-Shiaan, Muslim League, DPM and People’s League, a statement issued here said.

The meeting impressed upon the constituent parties to strengthen public relations and educate youth who “are being lured by pro-Indian parties”, the statement said.

In his address, Geelani said, “The repressive and coercive measures won’t dampen our sentiments, nor will (these) break our resolve. Being on righteous tack, we and our mission have full sustenance and blessings of Almighty Allah. History stands witness to the fact that right-based movements never fail; however tyrant forces vanish and stand nowhere.”

Holding National Conference (NC) and like-minded parties responsible for the present “chaos and confusion”, the Hurriyat chairman said, “Unfortunately some people instead of supporting right cause are allying with these wrongdoers”.

“Our struggle for achieving (the) right to self-determination is based on right and sacred ideology. Millions have offered their sacred sacrifices while nourishing this mission with their blood,” he said.

Geelani directed all the constituent parties of the amalgam to strengthen public relations and “encourage people for their commitment”.
