Taking strong exception to the statement of Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani that mainstream politicians are the reason for current unrest, death and destruction, the General Secretary of National Conference Dr Mustafa Kamaal on Tuesday said the veteran leader would be well advised to recollect his role in JK politics.
In a statement Kamaal said, " In 1972 Assembly elections his (Geelani's) party Jamat-i- Islami was made to win six seats unopposed to 5th Legislative Assembly from Anantnag district. Four seats (Three from Anantnag district and one from Sopore his own) in the 8th Legislative Assembly again his victory from Sopore in the 6th Legislative Assembly."
He said, "Anger, hate, malice, jealousy, ill – will back biting are negative human traits which cloud the intellect and God Almighty has expressed his displeasure of these traits in the Holy Quran and that jealously eats away good deeds." "My appeal to Geelani Sahab is to shun his misplaced and false notions of National Conference and its founder of which he has been a part once and use his influence in cooling tempers and correcting the waywardness of youth which is jeopardizing their future instead of wasting time on egoism before it is too late and everything goes up in smoke."
