Hurriyat (G) refutes police claim
‘NEW DELHI, NC MALIGNING MOVEMENT’
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 28: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Tuesday refuted the police claim that the conglomerate was fomenting trouble and instigating stone pelting.
In a statement the spokesman of the amalgam Ayaz Akbar termed the allegations as cheap tactics to suppress and malign the movement and challenged the police to come up with the evidence.
“By such tactics police are justifying the detention of the pro-freedom leaders and activists. The conspiracy to malign our sacred cause for the right to self-determination has been hatched by New Delhi and the National Conference. It is being executed by some officers of the Police department,” the statement said.
Pertinently, the DIG north Kashmir Munir Ahmad Khan on Monday during a press conference in Sopore had claimed that there was a nexus between stones pelters and Hurriyat (G).
Akbar said it has been the conglomerate’s standing policy to peacefully carry on the ongoing movement. “We do what we say. We don’t allow the people even to chant provocative slogans not to talk about instigating them. It was Geelani Sahib who urged the youth not to pelt stones and stage peaceful protests. Only an insane person can agree to sacrifice his life for Rs 400” he said.
The Hurriyat spokesman said the summer unrest had unnerved leaders in New Delhi. “They are trying to defame our movement by linking it with violence. New Delhi wants Kashmiris to surrender at gunpoint. The pro-freedom leadership and activists and thousands of youth have been arrested to weaken our cause,”
Leaders of the conglomerate named by the police are respected people in their respective localities. “They are not extremists or had gone underground. Geelani is the name of a movement not a person. Whoever is fighting against the oppression and right to self-determination is Geelani,” he added.
