SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani on Monday said history stands witness that in every freedom movement, the “occupational and tyrant” forces have always suffered a defeat.
Geelani in a statement said New Delhi through its military might “seems desperate to cow down our spirits” but will face defeat.
“Representing the sentiments and aspirations of people, it has remained our stance and we have been saying that we will never succumb to any pressure and will take (the) movement to its logical end,” Geelani said.
“Despite unabated killings, plunder, arson, showering bullets and pellets on public gatherings, maiming and blinding innocent children, brute torture of youth, braid chopping and sexual assault on women, they (New Delhi) failed to break the resolve and commitment of people with freedom movement,” he said.
The Hurriyat chairman said New Delhi is following its “particular sectarian dogma” and propagating “fabricated stories” and framing “(false) allegations” against the pro-freedom leadership.
Appealing people for unity, dedication and sincerity, Geelani asked them to stand against the “communal regime in Delhi, their stooges, local pro- Indian political parties and make their follies a failure”.
