Srinagar, Dec 17 : Terming the Enforcement Directorate Notice to Syed Ali Geelani as biased and unrealistic, Hurriyat Conference (G) said that Indian authorities have crossed all democratic, constitutional and moral limits to satisfy their hatred against Kashmiris in general and leadership in particular.
Hurriyat (G) has made it clear long ago that during 2002 Income Tax raid at the residences of Syed Ali Geelani and his close relatives, no currency or any objectionable material was recovered and it was conveyed to the concerned authorities through his council.
In a statement issued to KNS, Hurriyat Conference (G) said that Geelani and his party has a clear and open stand viz-a-viz Kashmir that this long standing dispute needs to be resolved peacefully in accordance with wishes and aspiration of its people. Harassing Hurriyat chairman through its agencies and putting him under the sponsored media trail, Indian autocracy will fail today as they have in the past.
Hurriyat said that knitting these imaginary and baseless stories and publicized through its arrogant media, is nothing but to pressurize Geelani to toe their line.
Hurriyat (G) further said that Geelani is not alien to jails, interrogations, tortures and solitary confinements and he has proved his mettle by his steadfastness and determination and he is not scared of such threats.
Hurriyat Conference (G) said, let the occupier and its local collaborators know that we will fight for our basic rights till the last breath and no power on earth can dare to stop us. Hurriyat further said circulating ED notice to media houses prior to our office, strengthens our belief that this is a frustrated move to tarnish the image of Geelani Sahab and force him to subjugation.
More than a decade old case is still pending in the Income Tax department and before their decision issuance of notice by ED amounts to arbitrariness.
Hurriyat (G) once again made it clear that paid media, ruthless agencies and inhuman armed forces along-with their local stooges may try whatever they can, but will never deter us from pursuing our right cause. We can never think of betraying or ignoring the countless sacrifices of our people and through every thick and thin we will stand by them. (KNS)
