Terms NIA raids in JK as ‘an exercise in futility’
Srinagar, Jun 05: Senior Hurriyat (G) leader and JK Insaf Party chairman, G A Gulzar Monday said that all the Indian institutions, whether political, judicial or intelligence agencies including NIA have lost their credibility before the people of Kashmir.
Terming the fresh storm of NIA in JK as ‘an exercise in futility’ regarding the character assassination of the pro movement leadership, Gulzar said that “the people of Kashmir are well aware about the track record of the Indian agencies since 1947. The people of Kashmir also stand witness to the victimization of the great sons of the soil at the hands of such agencies, including Mohammad Maqbool Bhat, Shiek Abdul Aziz, M. Afzal Guru, Prof. Sheik Gulam Mohammad, Advocate Zamrooda Habib, Ad.G M Bhat, Shabir Ahmad Dar, Mushtaq Ajmal, Jouranalist Iftikhar Gilani, Maqbol sahil, Human Rights Activists M Ahsan Untoo, Khrum Parvez, Engineer Farooq Ahmad, Gulzar Ahmad Wani, Tariq Ahmad Dar and Muzaffer Ahmad Dar, who were either martyred or bailed out from all the fabricated charges after rigorous imprisonment of 15 to 20 yrs in various jails of India.”
He expressed hope that the people of Kashmir shall stand united and well disciplined against all such ‘ill designs of Indian intelligence agencies’ as they did during the exemplary political uprising of 2016 and the recent complete election boycott.
Gulzar also appealed the pro freedom leadership not to beg for cheap publicity before the biased Indian media.
Meanwhile, the party spokesman said that two high level delegations led by General Secretary, Ali Mohammad Lone and District president Kupwara, Gh Qadir Kashmiri visited Brath Kalan and Bomay Sopore and participated in the condolence congregation to pay tributes to martyrs Ajaz Ahmad Mir and Basharat Ahmad Sheikh.
“Both the leaders reiterated the commitment to remain indebted to these precious sacrifices till the logical conclusion of the freedom movement,” the statement added. (KNS)
