Govt shielding miscreants in Zanskar: Geelani
Srinagar, Oct 30: The chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani has expressed deep anguish and concern over, what he said, the continued pre-planned violence against Muslims in Zanaskar, Kargil, and the blasphemous remarks against Islam uploaded on Facebook at Doda, Jammu.
Geelani, according to a Hurriyat statement, alleged that Government was deliberately shielding miscreants and maintaining criminal silence over their acts. “As a result, the situation in Jammu and Kashmir has turned very tense and alarming,” he said, demanding that the administration should take measures to protect the property and lives in Zanaskar.
Geelani alleged that New Delhi and its various agencies were bent upon creating wedge among separatist groups. “It is also trying to divert the attention of masses from the freedom struggle by whipping up sectarian clashes,” he said.
Hailing the people of Doda for their courage against ‘fascist’ forces, Geelani said, “We salute them for their true faith. We assure them that they are not alone.”
Geelani paid rich tributes to Muhammad Yousuf Ganai alias Pallay Khan of Pampore, who recently died in a road accident on Srinagar-Jammu highway. Paying rich tributes to Ganai, Geelani hailed his role during the on-going movement. “He remained in jail for a long period and during this he remained persistent and exhibited his commitment with the movement,” he said, expressing sympathy with the bereaved family and praying for the departed soul.
Meanwhile, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat is organizing an Eid Milan party on Wednesday, October 31, at its head office in Hyderpora here. Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai and other leaders are scheduled to address the gathering.
In today’s statement, Geelani has also issued a corrigendum. “The book published on Eid needs some rectification on page 44. The readers should read ‘R P School in the outskirts of Kukar Nag’ instead of ‘Army School in the outskirts of Kukernag’,” the statement said.
