Govt trying to defame separatists: Geelani
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 16: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Thursday accused the state government of resorting cheap tactics to defame the separatist leadership and ongoing movement for right to self-determination.
In a statement Geelani strongly refuted the statement of Director General of Police Kuldeep Khoda that the conglomerate’s general secretary Masarat Alam Bhat had revealed during interrogation that he (Geelani) had given him Rs 40 lakh to finance stone pelting during the 2010- summer unrest.
“I challenge the DGP that if he has moral courage, Masarat Alam should be produced in an open court to let the truth prevail. By making such a big allegation without any investigation or evidence against me, the police have raised doubts over its credibility and image,” Geelani said.
Elaborating, Geelani said undoubtedly the conglomerate is spearheading the ongoing movement for right to self-determination. “But we ensure to respect the human values. By telling the lies, the DGP is trying to kill two birds by one stone. The spontaneous protests against the innocent killings during the past five months, has make it clear that our movement is indigenous. The DGP has tried to do character assassination of Kashmiris including 111 martyrs and defame our agitation by alleging outside hand in the ongoing agitation,” he said.
Geelani alleged that the Government had launched a propaganda campaign to malign the image of separatists. “For this purpose, the Government sometimes utilizes the services of Income Tax authorities and now the police Chief," he added.
