TeH passing through trying times: Geelani
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 27: Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Monday said the party was passing through an extremely trying phase.
Geelani, who continues to be under house arrest for the past over three months, while addressing a meeting of Tehreek members of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district at Koil said, “The dozens of frontline leaders and sympathizers of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat have been put behind bars under PSA and those outside jails are being hunted by the police. Everyday leaders or members of the party are arrested,” said Geelani.
“We are continuing our struggle peacefully for the right to self-determination for Kashmiris. The successful role played by the Tehreek in past 6-months has frustrated New Delhi and all regional mainstream parties. As a result of this frustration, the rulers are using the police, CRPF and army and giving them a freehand to arrest and detain the Tehreek leaders and activists in jails under PSA.”
Geelani called upon the leaders and members of Tehreek not to give in to the pressure tactics employed against them by the rulers and continue their struggle peacefully till the goal is achieved.
He asked them to visit the families of the martyrs, arrested people and other victims of repression in every village and mohalla and demonstrate solidarity with them. “Besides, extend whole hearted help to the poor, orphan, widows and other needy,” he said.
