Shun rigidity, adopt civilized attitude: Geelani to New Delhi
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 5: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Saturday said the armed rebellion breaking out in 1989 was the fallout of curbs on Kashmiris’ political struggle for freedom.
“New Delhi never allowed any peaceful political struggle to get nourished. Instead of finding a peaceful political solution to Kashmir issue, it always pursued the policy of repression and suppression,” Geelani said, while addressing a condolence meeting here.
He expressed serious concern over the continued detention of pro-freedom leaders and activists, including Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Shabir Ahmad Shah, General Musa, Firdous Ahmad Shah, Dr Muhammad Qasim, Mir Hafizullah, Masrat Alam Bhat, Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem, Muhammad Rafiq Ganai, Shakeel Ahmad Bhat, Zaffar Habib, Sonaullah Mir, Bashir Ahmad Dar, Muhammad Yousuf Mir, Ashiq sofi, Manzoor Ahmad khan, Bilal Badiyari and Javid Ahmad.
“New Delhi is trying to create an impression that forthcoming Kashmir visit of Dr Manmohan Singh is the part of the political process, but the fact is that his visit has got no political significance,” he said.
“New Delhi has so far tried all tactics, including inflicting atrocities offering allurements and other benefits, but Kashmiris have remained firm on their stand and have rejected all the offers till date,” Geelani added.
He asked New Delhi to give up its “unsuccessful traditional policy” on Kashmir, adopt a “civilized attitude,” declare Jammu Kashmir as a dispute, release all pro-freedom detainees, revoke all black laws and start complete demilitarization. “India has no option but to resolve Kashmir issue,” he added.
Geelani appealed the functionaries of International Red Cross in Jammu Kashmir to take up the matter of detainees’ release with Dr Manmohan Singh and highlight their plight.
