Srinagar: Terming Jammu massacre of 1947 as the worst human tragedy, Syed Ali Geelani, the octogenarian Hurriyat leader on Tuesday and said that slaughtering lakhs of Muslims jointly by Dogra army, Indian forces, Hindutwa fascist groups like RSS and Shivsena and other communal forces is a brazen and most barbaric incident human history can ever come across.
In a statement, Geelani said that under a deep and well-knit conspiracy people who were willing to go to Pakistan were advised to assemble in Jammu police lines. It was here that Hari Singh and its troops unleashed a reign of terror and Muslim population was not only traumatized but terrified as well and the announcement to send them to Pakistan served a cool breeze and a great sight of relief for them.
“Geelani said since that day our bloodshed is continuing. As the people at the helm of affairs at that time were acting as deaf-mute spectators focused only on their personal and family gains. After a pause of 71 long years the mindset, thinking and the conduct of the perpetrators is reluctant to change, rather their insensitivity and irresponsive attitude has grown multi-fold,” the statement said.
The pro-freedom leader said that these fascists and fanatics, with the patronage and facilitation by political faces like RSS, Bajrang Dal and Shivsena, time to time exhibiting their power and muscle along with the armory to challenge the humanity in general and Muslims of the area in particular. They try to threaten the local populace and remind them of the old scars of 1947.
Hurriyat chairman said that at that time these goons were only active in Jammu region but by the blessings of “treasurers” they have knocked our doors and are successfully and purposefully moving forward to implement their “fascist and communal” agenda in the valley as well.
“Pro-freedom leader said that time is the best healer, it changes and alters almost everything, but nature of arrogance, greed, lust, and slavery fail to change even with the passage of centuries. He said that we as a nation are suffering the same way and subjected to bullets, pellets, arrests, PSAs, and raids but our oppressor along with its henchmen continue to hold to their chairs and are busy in delivering mesmerizing sermons to ‘educate’ the people to obey and surrender to the might of oppressor as that is the only way our kids will outshine their’s in every field of a subjugated life.”
