We need to check loopholes as these weaken our mission: Geelani

Srinagar: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani Saturday paid tributes to Muhammad Maqbool Bhat on his 34th martyrdom anniversary, saying that “we are duty bound to safeguard these sacrifices.”
Reiterating his demand for the return of the mortal remains of Mohammad Maqbool Bhat and Mohammad Afzal Guru, he said that although it is purely a human issue, India refused to return their mortal remains.
Pro-freedom leader while ridiculing Indian authorities for their reluctance said “no country other than India set this wrong precedence and in this way its claim of a largest democracy in the world is getting badly exposed.”
Reiterating Joint Leadership’s call for complete and state-wide shutdown on Feb 11, Geelani said that “nations never forget their heroes.”
“They are source of inspiration for us and the best way of paying tributes to them is that the nation should not forget these brave sons of the soil, who had sacrificed their ‘present’ for the ‘future’ of the nation,” he said.
“We have presented unparalleled sacrifice and now it is very imperative and obligatory to safeguard them,” Geelani said, adding that “we need to check loopholes and control our feeble points as all these weaknesses harm cherished mission of our martyrs.”
Geelani called upon the nation to exhibit steadfastness and unanimity and keep aloof from India and the local government. “Don’t support them as all these activities prove detrimental for our freedom movement,” he added.
Meanwhile, on the directions of Geelani, a deputation comprising of Mohammad Rafiq Owasi, Mukhtar Ahmad and Rameez Raja visited residence of Mohammad Afzal Guru and presented Tafheem-ul-Quran to his son Galib Guru and expressed their sympathy and solidarity.
The deputation also visited incarcerated activist in Tihar jail Ahtisham Farooq and expressed their condolences over the demise of his grandmother.
The deputation prayed for the departed soul and for the strength to grieved family.
