Srinagar, Mar 14: Paying tribute to Mohammad Eissa Fazili, Syed Owais Shafi and Sabzaar Ahmad, slain in Hakura, Islamabad gunfight, Syed Ali Geelani said that our youth lay their lives to end the age-old slavery of their nation, putting huge responsibility on our shoulders to honour these sacrifices and take mission to its logical end”.
Addressing a gathering of mourners, on telephone, Geelani as per the statement issued to KNS said that Eissa Fazili was very close to me, a passionate warrior and often visited my residence. “His commitment with freedom mission was exemplary and served as moral precedence, said Geelani, saying he was very thoughtful about the prevailing situation and commitment with his mission was praiseworthy,” Geelani added.
Recalling his meetings with Fazili, Geelani said that he often discussed the post Burhan scenario and continuous blood-shed, plight of maimed, pellet victims, ransacking of properties, detention of youth in torture centres and excesses perpetrated by forces gave him sleepless nights. This proved a turning point for him, joined resistance movement and embraced martyrdom, added Geelani.
Quoting Holy Quran Geelani said that these martyrs are alive,” And do not think of those killed in Allah’s path as dead: indeed, they are alive and receive their sustenance from their Lord. They rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah’’.
“We are duty bound to disassociate from those who since past seven decades are involved in genocide, said Geelani and added that we should boycott these chameleons and turn coats, as they for the lust of power are bartering the blood of our budding youth,” Geelani said.
Commenting over the prevailing appalling situations, Geelani said that “authorities in New Delhi are desperate to enforce their will and weaken our just and genuine freedom movement and as such we have to be cautious, remain united and adopt the spirit of persistence in pursuit of cherished goal.”
Geelani in his telephonic address to mourners said that Kashmir is a disputed state and, saying the people of Kashmir are getting killed only because they are asking for their right to self-determination and added that we do not want to snatch any legal part of India, and added that we will pursue our mission till its logical conclusion.
He cautioned people about the deceit being played by India and its agencies saying, “pro-freedom leaders are being denied their political space and accused forces of “mercilessly killing innocent and added that Indian authorities are once again raising Ikhwan like renegade groups to harass pro-freedom leadership, said Syed Ali Geelani.
“These youths spilled their hot blood for the great and sacred cause of Kashmir and the entire nation of Kashmir is indebted to these martyrs for their ultimate sacrifice. It is the collective responsibility of the people of Kashmir and the leadership to take the ongoing movement to its ultimate realization,” Geelani said.
Besides Geelani, the other leaders including Hakim Ab Rashid, Mohammad Yusuf Naqash, Yasmeen Raja, Farooq Ahmad Gotapori, Kh Firdous Wani and Sheikh Musaib addressed mourners and while paying tributes to martyrs pledged to carry their mission till the freedom mission is realized in reality and taken to its logical end.
