Geelani reiterates 3-day civil curfew call
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Nov 5: Reiterating his call for civil curfew on November 6, November 7 and November 8, the chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) has appealed the people to strictly adhere to it.
“The human tragedy of November 6, 1947, demands that we should highlight the forgotten and painful chapters of our history and make the world aware that Kashmir issue is not the creation of Hurriyat Conference or any armed struggle, but its roots are linked with the partition of subcontinent. Had the Britishers and India acted according to the principles of justice and equity, lakhs of Kashmiris would not have been killed so far nor would lakhs of them have taken recourse to migration? Had they not violated the fundamentals of partition, the history of south Asia would have been quite different today and the tremendous devastation and loss of human life in the subcontinent would not have taken place due to three full scale wars between India and Pakistan,” Geelani said.
He alleged that the former prime ministers of India like late Pandit Jawahir Lal Nehru, late Lal Bahadur Shahstri and late Indra Gandhi tried their best to bury the Kashmir issue but the history is witness to the fact that they miserably failed to do it. “Today we are remembering lakhs of innocent Muslims who were martyred in Jammu in 1947. We need to make it clear to the world that the Kashmir issue is becoming more serious with every passing day. For, the loss of human life and property in the region will continue till its final settlement,” he said.
Geelani has said Kashmiris should understand that they are fighting for their genuine right and noble cause. “So they should not worry about whether somebody supports them or not. We need to continue our just struggle without feeling disappointed about its vicissitudes as the situation in the world never remains the same,” he said.
Meanwhile, Geelani expressed happiness over the release of senior separatist leader Shabir Ahmad Shah and strongly condemned the assault on him at Jammu by extremists during a press conference.
