Hurriyat (G) executive meets, appeals UN to intervene
Srinagar, March 28: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday blamed mainstream parties in Jammu and Kashmir for the “prevailing confusion and chaos” in the state, saying “history stands witness to the fact that rightful movements never fail, however, tyrant forces vanish and stand nowhere.
“It is unfortunate that the leadership failed to deliver and even at crucial juncture when we were about to realize and attain our destination, they succumbed to pressure and allied with occupant forces,” said Geelani in his presidential address to the executive body meeting of Hurriyat at Hyderpora here.
“The participants reviewed and discussed the prevailing grim situation in the state and it was observed that Kashmir is a political issue and Hurriyat as representative forum of people will pursue its mission of freedom,” a statement issued said.
The executive council stressed United Nations to realize the sacrifices being presented by the people for right to self-determination and help and mediate in getting this right fulfilled without any more delay and bloodshed, said the statement.
The meeting expressed serious concern over the plight of hundreds of Kashmiri prisoners lodged in various jails in and outside the state, including those arrested by the NIA and lodged in Tihar jail.
The meeting also discussed ways to make the Hurriyat Conference more vibrant and active on social and political fronts and certain important resolutions were accepted and decisions were taken in this regard.
Hurriyat executive council authorised its chairman to reconstitute and re-order the Hurriyat conference and appoint its office bearers.
