Released youth vanguard of Kashmir struggle: Geelani
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 4: Describing, what he said, 25000 released youth as vanguard of ongoing movement, the Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Friday said whole Kashmiri nation recognized their sacrifices and holds them in high esteem.
“The released youth have not committed any crime by choosing the course of struggle. They have spent their precious part of life in jails for the honour of their nation,” Geelani said in a statement.
Geelani, alleged that the police was declaring the released youth as a threat to peace and order and was harassing them continuously. “They are summoned to police stations where they are meted out insulting treatment,” he said, adding that “Our youth have not found clue and inspiration from West Asia but they are the part of the struggle going on for the past 64 years in JK.”
“The mass movement started in West Asia in 2011 but the mass movements in JK have been on for past many decades. From holy relic movement to 1990s and then from 2008 to 2010, lakhs of people used to come on streets to express their wishes and aspiration,” Geelani said, expressing happiness and satisfaction over the observations made by the police officers that spirit of freedom has not died down in Kashmiri youth.
However, Geelani termed as wrong the analytical report of police officers that the released youth were now remorseful rather than feeling any pride. Geelani alleged that the released youth were facing problems from the police and other armed forces, not from the people.
Geelani rubbished the police claim as false that only former militants were being summoned to police stations and camps and not the common released youth.
Geelani alleged the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s claim that the cases against arrested youth would be withdrawn proved a hoax.
Geelani hailed the Amnesty International’s demand for revocation of Public Safety Act, urging it (AI) to take a serious note of the matter of released youth and impress upon the government to declare as null and void the cases registered against them (released youth).
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (G) spokesman said that Geelani has been under house arrest for past many days. “It’s a deplorable act and we condemn it,” the spokesman added.
