Celebrate Eid with utmost austerity: Geelani

Srinagar: Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday said that uprising has entered into the third month, but the ‘brute force of Indian armed forces’ seems to have no end, its gravity and intensity increases with each passing day.

He said that no place is devoid of these atrocities. People are subjected to the worst kind of treatment by the forces who try and test their all kinds of weaponry on the non-violent demonstrations and peaceful programs. People are ruthlessly tortured irrespective of their age and sex. Police continue their habit of gate crashing and nocturnal raids thereby terrorizing the whole populace, but our people courageously and bravely face all the odds, even during the harshest days of their life.

According to a statement issued to KNS, Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani while telephonically addressing people at Dargah and Noorbagh Srinagar said that people in general and youth in particular need to be vigilant as a small and minor lapse might lead to a massive disaster as for as the movement is concerned.

Syed Ali Geelani said that Eid-ul-Azha should be celebrated with utmost austerity and we should not forget the needy people in our vicinity as this is not only our moral duty but religious and social as well. He appealed all those who have any problem or need some help to contact the in-charge of local Baitul Maal as they being locals can be more aware of their issues.

Syed Ali Geelani further said that we have a clear and simple stand that unless the gravity and intensity of the Kashmir issue is not agreed upon, any negotiations or talks are bound to fail. He further said that my 50 years political experience and 150 rounds of talks stand testimony to it that people met, had photo shoot, then a cup of tea for so many decades but our bloodshed didn’t stop. Our fourth generation is bound to live under the dark and obnoxious shadow of Indian thrall. Our kids are living under the threat of forced armed occupation with its all repercussions.

He further said that our culture, faith and economy are at stake as we always are forced to keep the account of our dead ones.

Syed Ali Geelani said that only a bunch of collaborators which India has cultivated for the last 7 decades enjoy the luxuries of life as they have bargained on their moral ethos. They are main culprits of the ongoing genocide and deserve the punishment for their ill deeds. (KNS)
