NF censures ‘anti-hartal rally’
Srinagar, Nov 8: The chairman of National Front (NF), Nayeem Ahmad Khan, today took strong exception of “some NGO” holding an “anti-hartal rally” here on Sunday.
Khan questioned how the NGO activists were allowed to hold the protest in heart of the city when the state government claimed that it had imposed prohibitory orders under section 144 of the CrPc, which bars assembly of more than four persons at one place. “It seems that the rally was deliberately organized by some elements to disrupt peace in Srinagar and vitiate the atmosphere,” he said.
Khan said such rallies were not possible “without the patronage of the government.”
“Separatist leaders are placed under house arrest and prayers are disallowed on every Friday at the historic Jamia Masjid. But it is very striking to note that the state is allowing a rally by some NGO and police is giving a safe passing to them,” Khan said.
He questioned the “validity” of the “Jammu and Kashmir NGO Forum”, which organized the protest march.
“To say that these activists were the common people is just ridiculous. People have been supporting the ongoing movement in whatever way they can. They have followed the Hurriyat calendar in letter and spirit. Such rallies are organized just to defame the movement and Kashmiris, who have rendered unflinching sacrifices for the Kashmir case,” he added.
