Geelani, Sehrai pay tribute to Morsi

SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani and Tehreek-e-Hurriyat chief Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai on Tuesday paid tribute to former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi who died after court appearance.
In a statement, Geelani said he is saddened by his death and added every living creature has to taste the death, but some personalities due to their dedication, hard work, truthfulness and high moral values rule and conquer the hearts of countless people, not only who are near them, but even those who have only heard about them and their demise creates such a vacuum which for long, makes its well-wishers feel.
Hurriyat chairman said that when the dark clouds of death and destruction are seen everywhere particularly in Muslim nations, when blood of innocents is made inferior and even to water, when high headedness and autocratic rule suffocated every conscious individual, especially people of Egypt, leaders like Mohamed Morsi emerged as visionary and a torch bearer.
“His thunder and truthful roar threatened every bad soul, who started to halt his progressive actions using every weapon in their arsenal,” he said.
He said through the globally accepted and authenticated system, Morsi was elected to lead the nation, but not only anti-Muslim forces, but so-called custodians of Islamic heritage opened their treasures to pump in trillions of dollars to help the anti-social, anti-revolutionary and anti-democratic forces to wage a bloody war against the Egyptian population.
“The rulers of neighbouring countries crushed every fabric of democratic and moral values and acted as pawns of world powers to kill, maim, arrest and torture those who stood by their faith and commitment,” he added.
Condoling and consoling the people of Egypt and the family of deceased, the pro-freedom leader said that the vacuum created by Morsi’s death should not let the cruel and barbaric forces to get encouraged.
He prayed for his eternal peace.
Sehrai while expressing shock over the death of Morsi said that his death was an international conspiracy given the lack of health care he was provided.
He called treatment of former Egyptian President inhuman and said that President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi “could in principle be responsible for his death”.
“Morsi was an eye sore for anti-Islamic lobbies and their stooges were scared of revolution,” he said.
“Morsi was a great advocate and votary of justice and development and Noble Islamic leader of the present era.
“The brutal crackdown on mainstream political dissent particularly against the Muslim Brotherhood and its mass supporters was fully backed by western powers and many Arab nations,” Sehrai said.
