NC government at war with pro-freedom leaders: Geelani
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Mar 7: The Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu & Kashmir Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani Wednesday said the National Conference government was at war with pro-freedom leadership.
“Instead of fighting politically the political battles, the NC is playing a dangerous game of using government gun against the pro-freedom political leaders,” said Geelani, condemning strongly the alleged frequent police raids on the residence of Tehreek leader Raja Meraj-ud-Din.
Geelani, according to a Tehreek statement, said ‘NC’s hooliganism’ was much more responsible for the revolution in Kashmir than New Delhi’s stubbornness. “These people are once again committing folly and its negative fallout is inevitable,” he said, adding that since Shrine Board controversy, Raja Meraj-ud-Din was slapped PSA in three ‘false’ cases and he was released after serving a long detention.
“Now again police are raiding his residence and harassing his family members including children. His two brothers, who are putting up separately, were placed under police custody for two hours during which they were subjected to tremendous harassment,” he said.
Geelani asked Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to treat political leaders politically if he had, what he said, a little moral courage in him. “Getting political leaders harassed by the police and other armed forces will only promote anarchy,” he said, adding, “We are running a peaceful movement and we do not use any violent means in our programmes. The government should therefore fight us politically instead of using force.”
Geelani has appealed the functionaries of human rights organizations and Bar Association to take a serious note of the police raids on Raja Meraj-ud-Din’s residence.
