“Won’t allow anybody to play with sentiments of people’
Hurriyat (G) on Tuesday hit out at National Conference accusing it of playing “deceitful politics.”
Referring to ongoing movement and sacrifices presented by people, Hurriyat spokesperson said that, “since 1931, six lakh people were massacred, properties worth billions destroyed and added that these sacrifices were not offered to support any particular party or dynasty.”
“Hypocrisy and treachery is the trait of National conference,” the spokesperson said strongly criticizing NC working president Omar Abdullah for his statement wherein he has criticised Geelani.
“People and particularly youth are fully aware about the treacherous role played by NC leadership. NC since its inception has been playing deceit and folly and people in state are fully aware about their role,” the spokesperson said.
The spokesperson said the life and contribution of Geelani is an open book. “All pro-Indian parties and their leadership should study entire record of state assembly and see that Geelani has never accepted the state as an integral part of India,” he said.
Defining the role played by Muslim United Front and its participation in elections held in 1987, Hurriyat said that Front, “in a civilised and democratic way of achieving freedom, participated in those elections.” “However, through mass rigging, Indian authorities denied this democratic right and with the full support and blessings of New Delhi, NC grabbed power, particularly for their folly and bullying,” he said.
“Freedom movements are a sacred mission for legends and brave hearts, hence they face hardships and suffer almost all their life. While as PDP and NC like parties follow power politics. Omer Abdullah should explain about ‘freedom mission’ that his grandfather followed and when did Geelani begged for a berth in power corridors?,” the spokesperson asked.
“The two characters evidently differentiates the role played by Sheikh Abdullah and Syed Ali Geelani, as even on the floor of assembly while pronouncing his stand, Geelani always acknowledged Kashmir as a disputed territory.
Geelani dedicated his entire life for the sacred cause of nation’s freedom and even at ninety is pursuing this mission with full dedication. While as Sheikh Abdullah played with the sentiments of his nation to secure material gains for his dynasty,” he said.
“We will never allow anybody to play with the sentiments of people. The nation should boycott all upcoming elections and reject all these politicians and their deceitful and treacherous politics,” he said.
Meanwhile, Geelani paid glorious tributes to slain youth Tyeb Majeed and Ashiq Hussain, saying that “youth are laying their precious lives for a sacred cause and reiterated his pledge to carry their mission to its logical end.”
Geelani also expressed his deep grief over the demise of father of senior journalist, Shabir ibn Yusuf. He prayed for departed soul and forbiddance to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss.
