Expresses dismay over silence maintained by sensible people in India
Srinagar, Nov 18: Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani Saturday paid tributes to slain youth Mugais Mir, saying that more than six lakh people were killed during forced occupation and Mugais too was bestowed with an eternal life by Almighty Allah.
According to the statement issued to KNS, Geelani said that “as a true Muslim, we believe that martyrs never die instead are alive” and while quoting Holy Quran said that Allah states that, “And do not think of those killed in Allah’s path as dead, indeed they are alive they rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah”.
Geelani added that is the reason that every true believer derives satisfaction and never regrets, however it is very unfortunate that Indian authorities have crossed all limits and are inflicting atrocities and killing innocents.
Geelani expressed his dismay over the silence maintained by sensible people in India, saying that they should ask their rulers to fulfill their pledge and ascertain the aspiration of people in Jammu and Kashmir.
Referring to slain police personnel, Geelani said that “we equally feel for him and it is quite sad” and added that prevailing bloodshed is the outcome of forced occupation.
Blaming Indian authorities for their deceit, Geelani said that they are desperate to evolve a civil war like situation in Kashmir, saying that people are well aware about the folly’s being played by them.
Geelani said that “we are hopeful and believe that this era will come to an end soon.”
Geelani condemning the unabated detentions, curbs and bullying by authorities, said “despite their tall claims and parroting about upholding the democratic norms, they don’t even allow us to participate in funerals of our slain youth.”
He condemned the house detention of Hurriyat General Secretary Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Hurriyat spokesperson Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar, Muhammad Ashraf Laya, Mohammad Yasin Ataie, Omar Adil Dar and Syed Imtiaz Haider and added that since past seven years he has been in continuous house detention and police authorities don’t allow him to venture out or participate in funerals.
Appealing international organisation for human rights, Geelani impressed to take cognizance of this forced occupation and worsening situations in state.
Meanwhile, on the directions of Geelani, a deputation comprising of Mudasir Nadvi, Mustafa Sultan, led by Bashir Ahmad Qureshi, visited Parimpora Srinagar and participated in funeral prayers of Mugais Mir.
Addressing mourners, Bashir Ahmad Qureshi said that “these youths are laying their precious lives for Islam and freedom and we are duty bound to carry their mission to its logical end.” (KNS)
