All mainstream parties responsible for hanging Afzal: Geelani

The apology of the five Congress MLAs in connection with Afzal’s hanging is nothing but a farce. National Conference, PDP and state Congress are equally responsible for hanging of him.

Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Sunday alleged that all mainstream parties, including National Conference, Peoples Democratic Party and Congress are involved in Muhammad Afzal Guru’s hanging and are now playing “wicked politics” for their electoral gains. 

Geelani said, “The apology of the five Congress MLAs in connection with Afzal’s hanging is nothing but a farce.  National Conference, PDP and state Congress are equally responsible for hanging of him. They seeking forgiveness for this crime is a proof of their wicked politics,” Geelani said.

“Afzal Guru being hanged in Tihar jail two years ago was a political murder and it was a murder of the justice,” he said adding that by not allowing him to meet his family members before his hanging and denying his mortal remains to his family is a blot on New Delhi’s face.

 

“After hanging Afzal Guru, the pro-Indian politicians of Kashmir held a drama in the State Assembly with regarding to the issue. Let it be Omar Abdullah, Mufti Sayeed or any other leader of the state Congress, they all have a single point demand and goal. Chair of power and for this they can go to any extent,” he added.
