Human race is threatened on both sides: Geelani
Srinagar, February 28, 2019: All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani has expressed his serious concern and anguish on the escalating tension between India and Pakistan.
In a statement issued today, Geelani said that although borders were never calm, but for the last couple of days they are roaring with thunders of bombs and guns threatening the whole population and if it continues, a full-fledged war is knocking the doors of sub-continent.
“One gunned down the war planes, other claiming to have killed more than 300 people. The claims and counter claims will have no end and it is immaterial who kills how many and who bleeds more. One thing is sure that humanity and human race is threatened on both sides,” he said.
Hurriyat chairman hailed the mature and repeated peace appeals by Pakistan premier and said that such statements can only come through a person with human heart.
He hailed the free accommodation offer of the Kashmiri Hoteliers for the stranded passengers and tourists because of prevailing circumstances.
Condemning the recent NIA raids on scores of common people including pro-freedom leaders, Hurriyat chairman said that these coercive measures have never succeeded in curbing the freedom sentiments of people.
