While expressing his deep grief and shock over the another civilian killing Mehraj-ud-din Dar in Sopore area in the broad day light on Sunday, Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani today said the killings of the civilians by the government gunmen has took a very ugly turn. 

He said the Hurriyat Conference after holding detailed deliberations over this issue would inform the general public about how should they deal with this serious situation. "The common people are brutally killed in a broad day light and the government is acting as a mute spectator," Geelani said in a statement. 

"Mufti Muhammad Sayeed has failed to protect the lives of the common people there is no moral justification for him to remain in power. He should step down," Geelani added.

"If he will not do that then the people will be rightful in understanding that the secret agencies have got full support of Mufti Sayeed for the bloodshed of the common Kashmiri's and he is playing the role of a facilitator in implementing this plot." 

Hurriyat Conference expressed its heartfelt sympathy with the families of the killed civilians and said that we equally share their grief.
