Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday said that Indian authorities’ insensitivity and unconcern is the sole reason for unabated killings in Kashmir.

“The sacred blood of martyrs throughout the state of Jammu and Kashmir has indebted whole nation, and it is our collective responsibility to take the ongoing movement to its logical and realistic conclusion,” Geelani said while paying tributes to the militants who were killed in a gunfight in Chattergam area of Budgam on Wednesday.

Hurriyat chairman said that instead of taking measures to resolve this long pending issue in its historical perspective, “Indian authorities want to impose their own verdict through the barrel of gun”.

“We have been deprived our basic and fundamental rights and our young generation is trying to break the shackles of this forced slavery,” he said.

Geelani said that the prevailing uncertainty in the state and unrealistic approach of authorities is the basic cause of this human tragedy and it is the reason that youth are losing their precious lives. “Authorities are responsible for this horrendous situation. The authorities are adamant to carry forward this situation and prolong this unauthorized occupation,” he said.

Hurriyat chairman said that persistent denial couldn’t hold water for long. “India has to come to terms with the writing on wall, lest this unresolved and unaddressed can erupt and burst anytime, engulfing millions of people in this region,” he said.
