Hurriyat-G justifies MUF contesting polls in 1987
Takes on Omar for criticising Geelani
SRINAGAR, Nov 14: Hurriyat Conference (G) today justified the participation of Muslim United Front (MUF) in assembly elections in 1987 saying it was for “achieving freedom through civilised and democratic way.”

“However, through mass rigging, Indian authorities denied this democratic right. And with the full support and blessings of New Delhi, National Conference (NC) grabbed power, particularly for their folly and bullying,” said a statement by Hurriyat (G) in reaction to NC leader Omar Abdullah’s criticisim to Syed Ali Shah Geelani for contesting elections in past and advocating freedom now.

“The life and contribution of Geelani is an open book,” said Hurriyat (G) and asked all pro-Indian parties and their leadership to study entire record of state assembly and see that Geelani has never accepted the state as an integral part of India

Huriyat (G) asked Omar to explain about that “freedom mission”, his grandfather Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah followed and when did Geelani beg for a berth in power corridors.

“The two characters evidently differentiate the role played by Sheikh Abdullah and Syed Ali Geelani, as even on the floor of assembly while pronouncing his stand, Geelani always acknowledged Kashmir as a disputed territory. Geelani dedicated his entire life for the sacred cause of nation's freedom and even at ninety is pursuing this mission with full dedication, while as Sheikh Abdullah played with the sentiments of his nation to secure material gains for his dynasty,” the statement said.

Hurriyat (G) alleged that hypocrisy and treachery is the trait of National Conference. It strongly criticised Omar Abdullah for his statement. “People and particularly youth are fully aware about the treacherous role played by NC leadership,” the statement said.
