Srinagar, Jun 19: Resistance leadership on Monday in a joint statement said that NIA is being used as a war weapon against leadership, with its main objective to harass leadership.
In a statement issued to KNS, Joint leadership said that they frame and raid residences of pro-freedom leaders and activists on the pre-planned psychological crackdown, so that they surrender and stop voicing the sentiments of their nation.
Referring to NIA, they said that although this agency is being projected as an autonomous body, however its services are being utilized to terrorize leadership and defame and discredit ongoing freedom movement.
They are trying to frame false cases against resistance camp and putting pressure on us to weaken the resistance movement,” they said.
All these state sponsored tactics and coercive measures won’t deter us from pursuing our mission, nor these coercions, suppressive and aggressive measures will make us to surrender, said leadership.
The resistance leadership while referring to famous religious scholar, Dr Zakir Naik, said that he too was forced to leave country after framing concocted stories against him and in a similar manner authorities to defame freedom movement are planning to frame fake cases against leadership.
Leadership warned Indian authorities of dire consequences If this is not stopped forthwith.
We are deliberating over this issue seriously and are in continuous consultations with all sections of society, said they and added that we will chalk out a policy to resist this move, added they.
Statement said that for past several days NIA is unnecessarily questioning Mohammad Altaf Shah and Shahid ul Islam and added that during NIA raids in Srinagar, hawala money or any objectionable material was not seized, however through their mischievous plans are trying to get hold of leadership on fictitious charges as was done in Dr Zakir Nayaks case, added leadership.
This has proved beyond doubt that NIA is not an autonomous agency, instead a tool in the hands of fanatical authorities in Delhi and they take undue advantage of this agency against its opponents or those pursuing freedom struggle in state.
Kashmir issue is a reality, added they and said that through these repressive measures they won’t be able to achieve any good and it is our sincere suggestion to authorities in Delhi that instead of meddling through these feverish means they should address the core issue and provide an opportunity to ascertain the aspirations of people about political destiny of state.
It will definitely make an end to prevailing political uncertainty in state and this step will also boost economy of Indian citizens.
Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz and Malik said that we are a peace-loving nation and are deeply enthusiastic for lasting peace, however Indian leadership need to take steps and play a key role.
Better for Indian leadership to shun its haughty and stubborn attitude, leadership said and added that India can play a leading role and can help in creating a peaceful atmosphere in subcontinent. (KNS)
