Srinagar, Nov 6: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Saturday condemned the harassment of members of Sikh community at Hutmura village in south Kashmir’s Islamabad (Anantnag) district allegedly by the troopers. He termed it as an attempt to repeat the Chattisinghpora massacre.
Geelani also urged the Muslims to undertake patrolling of the Sikh dominated areas across the Valley to thwart any conspiracy against them.
“New Delhi is leaving no stone unturned to defame the sacred cause of Kashmiris. In 2000, during the visit of then US president Bill Clinton, 35 sikhs were massacred. The communal forces have been always targeting the minorities. The killings of Sikhs after the killing of Indira Gandhi in 1984 clearly establishes that the minorities including Muslims and Christians are not safe in India,” he said.
Geelani maintained the minorities communities including Sikhs are part and parcel of Kashmiri society. “I appeal the Kashmiri Muslims to undertake patrolling of the Sikh dominated areas along with the members of the minority community till US president Obama stays in India to thwart conspiracy against them,” he added.
