Geelani gives slip to cops, addresses public at mosque
SRINAGAR, July 28: Syed Ali Shah Geelani, chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) today gave a slip to cops at his Hyderpora residence and addressed the people at local Jamia Masjid there.

Geelani, who was under house arrest, moved out and boarded a vehicle outside his residence to reach Jamia Majid. Earlier, Geelani’s party Tehreek-e-Hurriyat was to hold “Nazool Quran Conference” at his residence but police disallowed it. The people, who had come from different areas, had to return as the cops did not allow them to enter the residence of Hurriyat (G) chairman.

Later, when everything seemed settled, Geelani left his residence and a waiting car drove him to the mosque. The cops, who were taken by surprise, could not do anything. As the senior separatist leader reached the Jami Masjid, strong protest demonstrations against the atrocities by government on people were held. Pro freedom slogans were raised during the protests.

Geelani addressed the “Nazool Quran Conference” at the mosque and spoke about various issues related to Kashmir. He strongly condemned the state government for his house arrest and disallowing the conference at his residence. “The government has not only imposed restrictions on my political activities but to religious activities also. On one side the sacrelige of holy Quran happens in Gool and on the other side a conference on Quran is banned here. This is suppression,” he said.

Geelani warned the government to desist from such acts or be ready for serious consequences.

He appealed the people not to cast their votes in assembly elections as doing so is against the ongoing movement. “They tell you that these elections are for administrative matters but government of India uses these elections at international level against our freedom struggle. The Indian leaders claim that Kashmiris are fed up with their struggle and have joined Indian mainstream and taking part in large numbers in the elections,” he said.

Hurriyat (G) chairman lashed out at the state government and New Delhi for large scale human rights violation and suppression to crush the movement. “The state government is shedding crocodile tears on the killings in Kashmir and its helplessness in revoking AFSPA. They are equally responsible for what is happening in Kashmir. Even the role of other pro India parties is same that of National Conference. They strengthen Indian interests in Kashmir,” he said.

Geelani claimed that government of India is hatching up a conspiracy to divide Jammu and Kashmir. “They want to take away Jammu and give a union territory status to Ladakh. We will not allow this thing to happen. Jammu and Kashmir is a single unit, consisting of Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh and Azad Kashmir,” he said.

Referring to Gool incident, he said Muslims in Jammu are being targeted again. “Muslims were massacred in 1947 in Jammu and similar moves are again being made there,” he said.

Geelani claimed that more and more non state subject labourers are being pushed into Kashmir for their permanent settlement. “New Delhi wants to change the demographic character of Kashmir by settling these non stat subject labourers. Do not provide rented accommodation in your homes to these labourers,” he said.

The Hurriyat (G) chairman alleged that government of India is looting the natural resources of the state.
