Geelani, Mirwaiz call bandh on Monday

Srinagar, Dec 29: Chairmen of Hurriyat Conference (G) and Hurriyat Conference (M) have called for shutdown on Monday against the Friday’s firing on civilians by government forces in Pulwama.
“We have called for shutdown on December 31 against the indiscriminate firing by Indian forces in Pulwama. We extend wholehearted sympathy with injured persons in the incident. India has deployed trigger-happy forces in Kashmir who kill innocent Kashmiris at their will,” Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani said in a statement.
Terming the announcement of magisterial inquiry by the government as a cruel joke, Geelani said, “It is nothing but to deceive and pacify the rage of masses. State administration is not in a position to inquire against forces amid the application of AFSPA and other draconian laws.”
Taking to Greater Kashmir, Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said, “We have called for shutdown on Monday (31st December) against the brutal use of force on civilians in Pulwama. We have taken the decision after a Hurriyat delegation visited Pulwama. Hurriyat Conference reiterates its stand that black laws and militarization will only lead to human rights violations. The incident has aptly exposed the hollow and fabricated statements of the Government of India that things are peaceful in Kashmir.”
He also said that Government of India should take cue from the incident that emotions and aspirations of Kashmiri people can’t be suppressed on gunpoint.
