Kashmir situation: Geelani slams OIC

Srinagar, Mar 25: Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani Monday urged the the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) to move “beyond passing resolutions” and do something solid to highlight the oppression in Kashmir. Geelani also condemned the “genocide” of Mulims in Burma.
 According to a statement issued here, Geelani said the OIC is a forum comprising 57 Islamic countries and Muslims across the globe have high expectations from it. “We appeal the OIC to move beyond the rhetoric of passing resolutions in favour of Muslims who are facing oppression across the world and do some practical work on ground. The resolutions passed by OIC so far in favour of Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine, Iraq and J&K have not changed anything on ground,” Geelani said.
 He said OIC should take serious note human rights violations in Kashmir and use of pepper gas on protesters. “The OIC should take note of arrests of youth, children and leaders who have been languishing in jails for many years,” Geelani said.  “The OIC should also look into the genocide of Muslims by Buddhists in Burma. It should build pressure on India to ensure that Kashmirs are not arrested on different pretexts.”
