“Our youth lay their lives to end the age-old slavery of their nation and for right to self-determination and I reiterate my pledge to take the ongoing movement to its logical end. We will never allow any body to barter with the precious blood of martyrs. We need to be aware of this and we are duty bound to safe guard their sacrifices and should desist from such activities which prove harmful for our movement,” the Hurriyat-G spokesman quoted Syed Ali Geelani as saying.
Hurriyat chairman said, “India is suffering from arrogance of power and has tried its best to muzzle our voice—but has utterly failed to do so, and no power on earth particularly the Indian might, its brutality can never deter us from our much cherished goal of right to self-determination.”
Stressing upon people in general and youth in particular, Geelani said, “We need to strengthen our faith and as a nation we need to the optimistic and by the grace of Almighty Allah the Indian brute force will come to an end and we will InshaAllah get rid of this forceful military occupation.”
