Geelani, Malik appeal ‘rights’ groups to take note of ‘Indian atrocities’
Sehrai pays tributes to slain militants
Srinagar, Jan 23: Chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Shah Geelani and JKLF chairman, Yaseen Malik have condemned the use of ‘brute force’ on ‘innocent’ Kashmiris alleging that a spree of death and destruction was unleashed by the forces that had resulted in numerous deaths, arrests and damage to property.
In separate press releases, the senior leaders asked the human rights groups to take note of the situation of Kashmir and condemned Indian forces of using excessive force against the people of Kashmir. “Our young generation is determined to get out of the unholy yolk of slavery at any cost and when young blood is so enthusiastic to achieve their goal, no power on earth can force them to subjugation,” Geelani said in a telephonic address to the mourners of Dr. Shams-ul-Haq at Soghan Shopian. Geelani also reiterated his pledge to take the ‘movement’ to its logical end stating that nobody will be allowed to ‘barter’ the ‘precious blood of martyrs’.
Terming slogans of development, prosperity or material gains as ‘deceitful’, Geelani further said that these slogans could never be substitute for ‘freedom’. “Pro-Indian politicians have turned into political leaches, sucking every drop of our blood to satisfy their masters in Delhi,” Geelani added.
Muhammad Yasin Malik while condemning the use of ‘brute force’ said that ‘martyrdom’ of many Kashmiris at Budgam, Shopian and in Baramulla during last few days and also the assault on a civilian at Haba-Kadal were indicative of the colonial mindset of Indian forces. “The unabated genocide of Kashmiri youth in nooks and corners of Kashmir and subsequent silence of human rights groups amounts to its abetting and patronage of such acts,” Malik said adding that people of Kashmir shall never compromise and shall continue to ‘peaceful struggle’.
JKLF chairman also said that forces and agencies torture, torment, humiliate Kashmiri youth and leave no place for them to pursue peaceful path and then eliminate them during ‘CASO’s’ and crackdowns.
Meanwhile, in a separate press release, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman, Mohd Ashraf Sehrai, while paying tributes to militants killed at Binner, Bramulla, has said that it was painful to see how ‘uninterrupted and relentless genocide’ was going on against the ‘defenseless Kashmirs’ while ‘collaborators’ had maintaining shameful silence. “Nearly a dozen budding youth brutalized within 72 hours and human rights champions not even uttered a word. This is shameful,” Sehrai was quoted as saying.
Sehrai also blaming India for carrying out ‘planned massacre’ in the state stating that forces, in the absence of any accountability, had waged a full-fledged war against people of Kashmir.
