Srinagar, May 15: Not “ISIS or Kashmiriyat’’, instead it is freedom or slavery, and people ones for all have made their mind & since last seventy years are pursuing their cherished goal, said Hurriyat Conference (G).
While reacting to the statement of Mehbooba Mufti, wherein she had said that “People have to choose between ISIS and Kashmiriyat” Hurriyat (G) categorically denounced statement, saying people have opted for freedom and rejected slavery, so no question arises to ask people about their choice.
People of different faith are living in complete harmony and there is no threat for mutual brotherhood and accord between the followers of different religions, said Hurriyat. However Indian forces under well thought plan are carrying genocide in state, said Hurriyat.
In a statement issued to KNS, Hurriyat (G) spokesman Ayaz Akbar while reacting to the statement, said, it is a deliberate attempt to cover up wrongdoing & atrocities inflicted by Indian forces. They are desperate to discredit & malign ongoing freedom struggle and as such giving unnecessary hype to’’ ISIS’’ threat, said spokesman.
Commenting over the communal harmony between followers of different faiths in state, spokesman said that Muslim, despite in majority, have always respected and remained generous towards minority communities.
While referring to statement of Mehbooba Mufti for her “Masjid, temple & Gurdwara” remarks, spokesman said that these places of worships are safe because we have no “Yogi Aditya Nath, Praveen Togadiya ‘’ like person nor it is Narinder Modi’s Gujrat.
Indian forces are responsible for the continued violence and killings in Kashmir, said spokesman while commenting over her statement wherein she said that “violence has yielded nothing, and brought only destruction”. Spokesman said that innocent people are being killed, maimed and blinded. Thousands are languishing in jails and police lock ups and illtreated and humiliated, added spokesman.
It is the outcome and resentment against atrocities and rigid approach of Indian authorities that our youngsters are daring to challenge Indian hegemony.
Hurriyat spokesman while referring to Zubair Ahmad Turey (Shopian), said that since last several years police chased, haunted and humiliated him. During this period, more than eight Public Safety Act were slapped against him. Statement said, even though court quashed his case and bailed him out, however instead of honoring court orders, police were continuously shifting him to different jails.
Let Mehbooba come with explanation as what was the option left for said youth, other than to join brave hearts & in such circumstances even her son would have made similar choice, said spokesman. It is a universal truth and nobody can deny veracity of this hash truth, added spokesman.
India continuous its forced occupation with its military might and has no moral or constitutional right over state, Hurriyat spokesman said and added that fanatical mindset and autocratic approach of India has taken a heavy toll of precious lives in this beautiful place of world.
People prefer freedom over slavery while as Mehbooba Mufti and likeminded people have no choice but to bow their head.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat Conference (G) while referring to DG police Sheesh Pal’s statement wherein he has said that no pro-freedom leader is detained and are free, said that its chairman Syed Ali Geelani is continuously under house arrest and heavy contingent of police & CRPF is camped outside his Hyderpora residence.
There is strict vigil and nobody can meet Syed Ali Geelani, said spokesman. People are stopped and he is not even allowed to offer prayers, Hurriyat (G) said.
Spokesman said he cannot substantiate his claim & it is far from reality while referring to DG police’s statement.
Meanwhile Hurriyat in its statement while criticizing police authorities for their denial to furnish reasons and grounds of detention to family of incarcerated leader Masarat Aalam Bhat, said that it is unjustified and unconstitutional. Hurriyat said that his family while pursuing his case approached authorities in DC office Baramulla, however they denied to furnish the necessary detail and documents. Quoting his family, spokesman said that PA in DC office Baramulla denied submitting any report, saying he is following orders of his higher ups.
Hurriyat while terming it state terrorism, said that every prisoner has right to pursue his case and denial from authorities proves beyond doubt that even civil administration is acting subservient and submissive to police hierarchy. (KNS)
