New Delhi trying to crush movement: Geelani
APPEALS ASPIRING HAJJIS TO PRAY FOR KASHMIR CAUSE
Srinagar, Oct 10: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Sunday accused New Delhi of trying to crush the movement before the visit of US president Barrack Obama to India.
“The Government of India is leaving no stone unturned to break the ongoing movement ahead of Obama’s visit to India. It is an attempt to hoodwink the international community about the situation in the Valley," Geelani said in a statement.
“At this crucial juncture Kashmiris have to be careful and foil any attempt to harm the movement. They have to apprise the world that peace will continue to elude south Asia till longstanding Kashmir dispute is resolved. I want to maintain that the pro-India political parties in Kashmir are hampering the resolution of the dispute. If these people (mainstream politicians) had any concern for the collective interests of the people, they would have resigned from the Assembly,” he said.
Geelani alleged that the ruling party had launched a "negative campaign" through its "paid agents" to defame the ongoing movement.
Geelani made a fervent appeal to the people to make the conglomerate’s programs successful. “We have only two options. It is a do or die situation for us. Kashmiris must keep the struggle on till they achieve the right to self-determination,” he said.
Geelani also criticized Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, saying, "On one hand he claims that those who were killed over the past 4-months were the pieces of his heart, but on the other he openly plays politics with their sacrifices by sticking to power."
Felicitating the aspiring Hajjis proceeding for holy pilgrimage, Geelani appealed them to pray for success of the ongoing movement of the right to self-determination.
“During the past 4-months, Kashmir has passed through trepidation. It is the responsibility of the aspiring Hajjis from Kashmir to pray for success of the ongoing movement and apprise the international community about our sufferings,” Geelani said.
