Counter us politically, not through military might: Geelani to NC
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 13: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Monday came down heavily on the ruling National Conference accusing it of using Army and Police for its interests and to suppress the ongoing movement.
The veteran leader maintained that being a political party, the NC should fight the conglomerate’s peaceful programs "politically and not through military might."
Geelani who is spearheading the ongoing ‘Quit Jammu and Kashmir Movement’ also urged the people to stage peaceful protests from Maghrib to Isha prayers on Thursday December 16 and for one hour after the congregational prayers on Friday December 17 respectively.
In a statement, Geelani castigated New Delhi for what he said illegally using state power to suppress the peaceful agitation of Kashmiris. “For this purpose, the NC has been directed to help the police and Army. The NC leaders in collusion with the concerned station house officers prepare the list of youth, who have taken more or less part in the agitation since June this year. These youth are asked to report to the Police Stations and then arrested or their houses are raided,” Geelani said.
Elaborating Geelani alleged that frivilious cases were being registered against most of the arrested youth. “And those arrested youth who get recommendation from the NC activists, are forced to pay ransom in lieu of their release. This is a dangerous campaign by virtue of which the career of our younger generation is being ruined. The FIRs become a life-long problem for youth,” he said.
Geelani stated that that the campaign launched by the NC and New Delhi is wrong in all respects. “Kashmiris have been successful to give a pure peaceful direction to the movement. Instead of respecting the transition of our movement, New Delhi and its agents in Kashmir are adamant on their policy which has categorically failed in past 63 years,” he said.
“By using the Army and police to satiate its party interests, the NC is displaying its sheer shortsightedness. As a political party, the NC should fight Hurriyat’s peaceful programs at the political level only,” he maintained.
Geelani said that the Government’s silence over the excesses on the people tantamounts to crime against the nation. For highlighting the excesses, Geelani said the conglomerate is left with no option but to stage protests.
“The protests have many forms but all of them have been barred in the Valley. This is totally undemocratic. Taking all the aspects into consideration, we can only use hartal to register our protest against the atrocities. We have kept this option reserved and whenever situation demands we will use this birth and democratic right,” Geelani maintained.
