Geelani repeats shutdown call for Monday
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 4: Repeating his shutdown call for June 7, on the arrival of Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to Srinagar, veteran pro-freedom leader and Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) on Friday said instead of talking development Dr Singh should take effective steps to fulfill the commitments of his predecessors made with Kashmiris.
Geelani was addressing a public meeting at Nowshahara in the City after Friday prayers during protest demonstrations against Israeli aggression.
He said: “Kashmiris are not begging for developmental works like construction of roads and bridges but are demanding birth right of freedom. Dr Singh should therefore extend support and cooperation for the implementation of the United Nations Resolution to resolve Kashmir issue. We want to bring home the message to him that his troops are committing worst kind of war crimes in Kashmir by killing innocent civilians in fake encounters and burying them together in mass graves which are being discovered at several places in border areas.”
Rejecting autonomy, self-rule, soft borders or four-point formula as solutions to Kashmir issue, Geelani said Kashmir issue could only be resolved through plebiscite. He announced to continue his campaign for demilitarization, saying that “We will also visit Jammu and Ladakh regions to launch a public awareness campaign there.”
Geelani strongly condemned the filming and blackmailing of girls by a photographer in district Islamabad of south Kashmir.
