No civilian safe in JK: Geelani
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 31: Strongly condemning the alleged killing of a youth in Shopian, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani today alleged that no civilian in Jammu Kashmir was safe and that armed forces were killing them brazenly. “Yesterday Bandipora and today Shopian, there is no let up in the civilian killings at the hands of armed forces,” said Geelani in a statement today, demanding impartial probe into the killing.
“These killings will continue to take place in the Valley until complete demilitarization of whole state,” Geelani said.
Geelani said Kashmir issue could neither be solved through self-rule nor through autonomy. “Both autonomy and self-rule are hollow slogans raised by National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party respectively, ” he said, terming as poetic imagination the PDP leader Mufti Muhammad Sayeed’s statement that Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh’s proposed visit to Pakistan would determine the way for resolving Kashmir issue.
Geelani alleged that New Delhi’s ‘stubbornness’ was the biggest hurdle in resolving Kashmir issue. He said the leaders of NC and PDP were the paid loyalists of New Delhi and they were least concerned about the resolution of Kashmir issue. “They are talking of Kashmir issue at public meetings only to garner votes from the people. They should desist from pursuing the politics of deceit and double standards and keep their politics limited to grabbing power. The people of state have suffered a lot in the past due to cunning politics,” he said.
