After police move, Hurriyat (G) to reach out to people

Will Build Consensus On Issue, Go Door-To-Door: Geelani



Srinagar, Nov 12: The Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Geelani has now decided to ‘reach out’ to people on the issue of Amarnath yatra and the Shrine Board’s management of the annual pilgrimage. This comes barely a few days after police foiled the Hurriyat’s seminar on “Shrine Board’s Role” on past Saturday.
 Taking to Greater Kashmir, Geelani said the amalgam will reach out to various sections of the society to build consensus over the Amarnath Shrine Board issue. “We will organize our agitation and mobilize public against the evil designs of Amarnath Shrine Board. We will continue to reach out to various sections of society including intellectuals, Kashmiri pandits, lawyers, traders, transporters and students from Tuesday,” he said. “We may even go for a door to door campaign. The government did not allow people to reach to the leadership but that does not mean we will stop raising our voice against the Shrine Board.”
 Asked how he would go about meeting different sections of the society, Geelani said: “It is the mandate of the committee constituted on the issue which is headed by General Secretary of the amalgam, Ghulam Nabi Sumji. The panel will decide how to go about it.”
 Geelani said the decision to reach out to people was taken at an executive committee meeting chaired by Geelani at his Hydepora residence. It was attended by representatives from all the allied parties of the amalgam.
 Calling Chief Minister Omer Abdullah a “weak Chief Minister”, Geelani said: “He is waging a war against people of Jammu and Kashmir on the directions of New Delhi. I want to make it clear to him that these suppressive measures will not deter us from our duty. We are not afraid and we have decided to go ahead with our programme, come what may.” 
 “The main motive of the government to foil our seminars and arrest Hurriyat leadership is to create political vacuum and then fill it with puppets. Government is hell-bent to disturb the system and is using every tactic to keep pro-freedom parties and their policies at bay,” the Hurriyat said in a statement today. 
 Geelani had on past Saturday called a seminar on “Shrine Board’s role” which was foiled by police.
