Hurriyat (G) warns against Guru’s execution Threatens devastating consequences
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 20: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Thursday warned the government of India against execution of Parliament attack accused Afzal Guru, threatening serious and devastating consequences.
“Afzal Guru is our national hero who has been implicated in a baseless case. If he is executed, it will have devastating consequences and it will be beyond the power of New Delhi to control the emerging storm,” said the Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar in a statement today.
Commenting on the New Delhi and Omar Abdullah’s statements regarding Afzal Guru, the spokesman said it seemed that preparations were underway to execute him. “New Delhi knows that ruling Sheikh family can go to the extent of killing whole Kashmiri nation to save its power. This family has set a scandalous example in case of Shaheed Maqbool Bhat. But they should know it is not 1984 but 2010,” he said.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat has strongly condemned the re-arrest of Masarat Alam Bhat and his shifting to Srinagar Central Jail despite court orders for his release, terming it the worst example of ‘state terrorism’ and political vendetta. “Such steps are taken at the time when Amnesty International team is on a visit to the Valley. This clearly shows that Jammu and Kashmir is virtually a police state where implementation of constitution and law has been put to suspension and the state administration with the support pf army and police has gone at war with the civilians,” he said.
“Masarat Alam was arrested during Shrine Board agitation and till date the court has acquitted him seven times and issued clear orders for his release. But each time the government defied the court order,” said the spokesman, exhorting the NC leadership to deal political opponents politically and desist from suppressing political leaders with the help of police force as otherwise it will have serious ramifications like in the past.
The spokesman also expressed serious concern over the continued detention of pro-freedom leaders including Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Gen Musa, Mir Hafizullah, Shabir Ahmad Shah, Bilal Ahmad, Zaffar Habib, Muhammad Yousuf Mir, Manzoor Ahmad and Sonaullah. He appealed to visiting Amnesty International team to use its influence for the release of these detainees.
