Srinagar, May 20: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday suspended one of its constituent party, National Front from basic membership of Hurriyat Conference. The suspension will come into force with immediate effect in Srinagar and Hurriyat chapter of Azad Kashmir.
People in occupied Jammu & Kashmir are following movement likewise they are performing their other religious obligations, said Geelani & while referring to a video clip telecasted by an Indian TV Chanel, said that they are attempting to defame our cherished movement.
We summoned all constituent members including Nayeem Ahmad Khan to facilitate him to keep his view point before executive body, however police authorities did not allow leaders to hold a meeting at his residence in Hyderpora.
In a statement issued to KNS, Syed Ali Geelani said that though Nayeem Ahmad Khan in a press conference has raised questions over the veracity of said clip & added that in pursuance of special power vested in me as chairman and until the clarification of all related issues come to fore, the membership will remain suspended. It is my moral duty and as a supreme head of forum I am obliged to fulfill assigned duties.
However, it is my duty to aware my nation that Indian media is a biased and not trustworthy. They are working for Indian agencies and as mouthpiece for fanatical forces.
Syed Ali Geelani ridiculing India media for their partial and biased reporting said, they are promoting colonial mindset & added that Indian media is hellbent to bring bad name to leadership and defame ongoing freedom struggle.
Indian media is relying on lies and concocted & sensational stories about money transactions are being telecasted, said Geelani and added that these baseless stories are far from realities.
They are desperate to defame our righteous movement, said Geelani and added that it is a deliberate attempt to mislead international community and a part of their frivolous game to involve Pakistan.
Syed Ali Geelani admitted that no doubt Pakistan is a prime party to the issue and supports us on political and moral grounds. It is not possible for India to implicate us as ours is an indigenous movement and damaging propaganda won’t have any adverse effect over its credibility, said Geelani.
Syed Ali Geelani said that uprising in 2016 was not preplanned and nor instigated by Pakistan.
Syed Ali Geelani said that it was a spontaneous reaction from people after the martyrdom of commander Burhan and during five months long uprising, people braved pellets and bullets. They were massacred and even scores of youth sacrificed their eyesight. Our people are not doing all this just for fun but it is a sacred sentiment and passion that people follow, said Geelani.
Blaming India for continuous bloodshed, Geelani said that their stubborn attitude is root cause for prevailing mayhem.
We need resources to combat military might of India and mostly we raise all funds from local sources to pursue our movement.
Geelani while referring to his organization Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, said that it is strong and cadre based party. People with generous heart help us through every possible means & mostly people in month of Ramadan, do offer their alms and charity, said Geelani. We are enough self-sufficient and as such our movement is indigenous, he added.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat Conference (G) said that police on Saturday foiled scheduled meeting of pro-freedom leaders at Hyderpora. The statement issued said that state authorities are not even allowing resistance leaders to have a formal meet and while terming it vandalism and bullying, spokesman said that a meeting was called to consider the situations erupted after a video clip was telecasted by an Indian TV channels.
All constituent members were formally summoned, however police in large contingents blocked all roads leading to office and sealed office. No one including executive members and even office bearers were allowed to move forward and turned back.
Spokesman while strongly condemning authorities, said that their approach against pro-freedom would further elevate the level of uncertainty in state. Uncalled restrictions against leadership is creating chaos, said spokesman and it has deflated the claims of so-called democracy of India and its henchmen in state. India despite all its claims is following fascist dogma and trampling all ethics, said spokesman. (KNS)
