Srinagar: Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Sunday hailed the efforts of Pakistan for the settlement of Kashmir issue, saying during Imran Khan’s visit to Turkey, he expressed serious concern over this dispute.

In a statement, Geelani also thanked the Turkish President for his Kashmir concern. “We as a nation are desperate to get the world know our sufferings, and Pak-Turk joint narrative to resolve this issue has come as a soothing breeze for us,” he said.

“Muslim leadership has to come forward to extend a helping hand to the Muslims who are killed, crushed and subjugated in every corner of the globe. From Kabul to Karachi, Dhaka to Syria, Kashmir to Palestine everywhere blood of innocent Muslims is spilled for one or the other reasons,” Geelani said.

Pro-freedom leader further said that “anti-Muslim forces are collectively targeting a particular faith”.

Our land has become a testing lab for the “latest and most lethal weaponry manufactured in the Indian factories”, he said, “creating havoc in this peace-loving population”.

Geelani added that it is surprising that UN’s silence encourages the “perpetrators to violate and dishonour their own resolutions”.

Our well-wishers and sympathizers need to do more than issuing statements, Hurriyat chairman said, and our continuous sufferings demand some practical and concrete steps if we are to be rescued.
