Delhi can never deter us from achieving our goal: Geelani

Srinagar: May 29:  Paying rich tributes to militants killed in Kulgam and Kukarnag encounters, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday said that “everyday our youth are sacrificing their precious lives for the sacred cause of freedom from Indian clutches, making all of us duty bound to safeguard these sacrifices with utmost commitment and dedication”.

“India is suffering from arrogance of power and has tried its best to muzzle our voice but has utterly failed to do so, and its military might or brutality can never deter us from achieving our much cherished goal of right to self-determination,” Hurriyat (G) chairman said in a statement issued.

He said that situation in the valley is worsening with each passing day and that Indian authorities rely on their military might to suppress people’s aspirations and muzzle their legitimate demand for right to self-determination.

Geelani regretted that “the stubborn attitude of India regarding this globally accepted political dispute and adoption of any military solution can bring in its wake widespread death and destruction in the whole subcontinent and make vulnerable peace and harmony of the whole region as well”.

He said that with the resolution of this issue a new era of peace, stability and development will prevail not only in Indo-Pak subcontinent but in whole South Asia.

Meanwhile, a Hurriyat (G) spokesperson has condemned the government forces for “letting loose a reign of terror” against people.

“Use of brute force has become a routine matter. Frequent search operations are conducted to display military might and suppress the common people to keep them under a permanent fear psychosis,” he said in the statement.

“On the basis of information received by the Hurriyat Office, hundreds of common masses hailing from Kulgam, Kokernag, Soibugh Budgam, Sopore, Pulwama and other areas have been critically injured, ruthlessly beaten and taken into custody on flimsy and baseless grounds,” the spokesperson said.

He cited the example of Shehnawaz, “who is not affiliated with any organization, has been incarcerated and lodged in Kathua jail. The said person is a civilian and father of 3 kids. Fayaz Ahmad of Soibugh Budgam is striving between life and death at Soura hospital”.

Similarly hundreds of youth including the teenaged students get showers of bullets and pellets without any provocation, Hurriyat (G) said.
