Geelani calls for total shutdown on Dec 11
UMER MAQBOOL DAR
Srinagar, Dec 3: Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Friday called for complete shutdown on December 11 against human rights violations in the state.
Reiterating call for complete strike on December 4 against the killings of three youth in Qamarwari, Geelani called for complete shutdown on December 11 against the rights violations in Valley.
International human rights day is being observed on December 10.
“The people should stage protest on December 10 for an hour after prayers,” he said.
The veteran leader said that once again Kashmir issue is being talked about at international fora after five months of ‘Quit Jammu and Kashmir campaign’.
“Kashmir issue is an international dispute. The five-month Quit Kashmir Movement has shaken the world and conscious people of India. Due to sacrifices, public opinion is building that Kashmir issue is different from what is being portrayed by the Indian media,” he said.
About the statement of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah that United States president Barack Obama was not impressed by unrest, Geelani said: “If US president Barack Obama having regard for the host country has given a cautious statement, it doesn’t change the ground realities in Kashmir,” he said.
“Kashmir issue proved bigger than Omar’s grandfather Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah who failed to bury the issue. It is better for him (Omar) to follow the orders of New Delhi and leave Kashmir issue to its people who are fighting for the freedom,” he said.
