Remembers Qazi Nisar on his anniversary

Srinagar: Expressing deep concern over human rights violations in the valley, chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani asked United Nations and UNHRC to take cognisance of rights violations in Kashmir.
Geelani in a statement said, “Authorities in Delhi through its military might seem desperate to cow down our spirits. However all the follies played by them will culminate in their 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 movement to its logical end.”
While referring to “coercive measures and atrocities perpetrated by forces”, Geelani said: “The state authorities and New Delhi are killing innocent people and inflicting brutalities.”
Referring to incarcerated DeM chairman SyedaAsiyaAndrabi, FehmeedaSofi and her other aides, Geelani hailed the contribution of ailing leaders and said that state authorities without any legal justification are prolonging their detention and detained them in police custody.
Resistance leader blamed police authorities for repeatedly slapping PSA on MasaratAllam. “Slapping Allam with PSA on fake grounds and prolonging his detention is condemnable,”he said.
Hurriyat chairman while referring to detained senior leaders Mir HafeezUllah and Ameer Hamza Shah, said that unjustified detention won’t cow down our spirits and added that these leaders are being subjected to vengeance.
While condemning the detention and nocturnal raids on residences of resistance leaders, Geelani said it is “extremely unwise” to deny political space and muzzle genuine voices of TeH leader Bashir Ahmad Qureshi and added that police in raids harassed inmates. “The night raids are unbearable and unacceptable,” Geelani said and added police in a bid to prove themselves as“more loyal than the king” are surpassing all limits.
Remembering QaziNisar on his 24th anniversary, Hurriyat chairman hailed his religious, social, and political contribution.
Geelani said that Nisar was a religious scholar and a humble person.
Meanwhile on the directions of Syed Ali Geelani, a high-level delegation comprising of Bashir Ahmad Irfani, Hakeem Ab Rashid and Bilal Sidiqi participated in FatehKhawani of QaziNisar held in Anantnag.
Geelani lashed at authorities for their autocratic and brute behaviour saying, detaining resistance leaders including QaziYasir, Hakim Ab Rashid and Shabir Ahmad Dar and disallowing congregational prayers at Anantnag to commemorate QaziNisar on his anniversary, saying authorities don’ t even allow us to offer our tributes to slain leaders and religious obligations.
