Khan flays police ‘threat’ to dislodge Sopori
‘Step fraught with dangerous consequences’
Srinagar, June 24: Senior pro-freedom leader and National Front Chairman Nayeem Ahmad Khan Sunday voiced concern over the reported police action asking Peoples League leader GM Sopori to vacate from his Srinagar residence, describing it as a “step fraught with dangerous consequences.”
In a statement here, Khan warned Government of India that “this move will have serious repercussions and would be resisted tooth and nail.”
“Sopori has been told by Police to leave his residence which is his legal property. This is a shameful incident, reminiscent of Israeli history. Now Government of India has also adopted the same policy so that Kashmiris are left alone without any leader. Dislodging Sopori is a first step in that direction,” Khan alleged.
Nayeem Khan assured Sopori that he “should not feel alone but the entire pro-freedom leadership and people are with him.”
“Pro-freedom leadership is facing every sort of oppression at the hands of India and its local collaborators for more than six decades. But by the cooperation of common people on ground, the leadership has always proved itself firm on its political stand,” Khan said.
Khan said “men in uniform have been left unaccountable and they are doing every sort of Gundagari in the name of law and order.”
He said “People have not forgotten their unarmed youth massacred from 2008 to 2010.”
“India can weaken the resistance movement for the time being by suppression and oppression but it can’t kill the sentiment,” Khan said.
