Muslim leadership has to come forward: Geelani hails Pak-Turk bonhomie

SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani on Monday hailed the joint press briefing of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan at Ankara wherein they expressed serious concern over the issues concerning the Muslim Ummah. He also hailed efforts of Pakistan towards resolving the long-pending Kashmir issue.
“Muslim leadership has to come forward to extend a helping hand to Muslims who are killed, crushed, subjugated and maimed 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 other reasons,” Geelani said in a statement issued here.
He said “anti Muslim forces are collectively targeting a particularly faith and the main reason for it is the sold out souls of the collaborators and henchmen who very brazenly encourage the blood of their own people just for their vested interests”.
“Our unfortunate land is also chained by Indian imperialistic occupation for the last 7 decades, and our people are struggling hard to break the shackles of this forced slavery, but the so-called world’s largest democracy has responded with an iron fist to quell our just struggle leading to unabated cycle of death and destruction,” Hurriyat chairman said.
“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.
Geelani said “our land has become a testing lab for the latest and most lethal weaponry manufactured in the Indian factories, creating havoc in this peace loving population”.
It is surprising that UN’s silence encourages the perpetrators to violate and dishonour their own resolutions; the pro-freedom leader said adding that our well-wishers and sympathisers need to rise above the statements.
“Our continuous sufferings demand some practical and concrete steps if we are to be rescued,” Geelani said.
