Chairman of  Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday said that state authorities are denying political space to pro-resistance leadership and caging Kashmir youth and their leaders on ‘frivolous’ charges.

“The Kashmiri political detainees, lodged in different jails, are subjected to extreme political vengeance,” a Hurriyat (G) spokesman quoted Geelani as having said while addressing  a meeting of Hurriyat executive council members at Hyderpora here.

He stressed upon the participants to pursue mission with persistence and steadfastness, urging them to reach the grass root level.

Blaming forces for increased ‘waywardness’ among youth, Geelani said, “The forces are involved in liquor trade and supply. They are scandalously supplying drugs in nook and corner of the state to entrap the youth in this menace.” 

“Forced control is the root cause of all evils. We need to build our character as per guidelines laid by Islam,” he said, “The people should follow the teachings of Quran and Sunnah. They should repose faith in Almighty Allah and seek refuge in him as this will infuse spirit and will power to withstand the brutalities and hardships the people face while pursuing the pious and sacred mission of martyrs.”

Meanwhile, Geelani condemned forces action in Jamia Masjid, saying the authorities are hell-bent to carry on bloodshed. “I strongly condemn the police excesses in Jamia Masjid and surrounding areas,’ he added.
