SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani paid glorious tributes to slain militant of Parimpora Srinagar Mugees Mir.
“we believe that martyrs never die (but) are alive” That is the reason that every true believer derives satisfaction (from martyrdom) and never regrets; however, it is very unfortunate that Indian authorities have crossed all limits and are inflicting atrocities and killing innocents,” Geelani said in a statement.
He expressed dismay over the silence maintained by “sensible” people in India, saying they should ask their rulers to fulfill their pledge and ascertain (sic) the aspirations of people in Jammu and Kashmir.
Referring to slain police personnel, Geelani said, “We equally feel for him and it is sad. The prevailing bloodshed is the outcome of forced occupation.”
Blaming Indian authorities for their “deceit”, the Hurriyat chairman said they are “desperate to (create) a civil war like situation in Kashmir”. He said people are well aware about the “follies” being played by them.
“We are hopeful and believe that this era will come to an end soon,” Geelani said while condemning the unabated detentions, curbs and “bullying” by authorities.
“Despite their tall claims and parroting about upholding the democratic norms, they (authorities) don’t even allow us to participate in funerals of our slain youth,” he said.
Geelani strongly condemned the house detention of conglomerate’s general secretary Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, spokesperson Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar, Muhammad Ashraf Laya, Mohammad Yasin Ataie, Omar Adil Dar and Syed Imtiaz Haider, saying for the past seven years he has been under continuous house detention.
Appealing international human rights organisations, Geelani impressed them to take cognisance of the “forced occupation and worsening situations” in Jammu Kashmir.
Meanwhile on Geelani’s directions, a deputation led by Bashir Ahmad Qureshi which comprised Mudasir Nadvi and Mustafa Sultan visited Parimpora, Srinagar and participated in funeral prayers of slain militant Mugees Mir.
Addressing the people, Qureshi said, “These youths are laying their precious lives for Islam and freedom and we are duty-bound to carry their mission to its logical end.”
