Geelani criticizes Union Home Minister for his statements on Kashmir issue, Pakistan

Expresses gratitude to entire Pakistan for their unflinching support to people of J&K


Srinagar, Feb 05 (KNS): Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Monday criticized Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh for his statements on the Kashmir issue and Pakistan, alleging that their “narratives” reflect “negative and egoistic approach”. They are following their bigoted dogma and as such creating war euphoria in region, added Geelani. No sane person can say like this, said Geelani while referring to his statement wherein he has said that they have directed their forces to ‘’shoot limitless bullets to retaliate a single fire on our territory by the Pakistani forces.’’
Such rhetoric’s and senseless statements instead of solving the issues will multiply the problems and any flare can lead to a full-fledged nuclear war between two countries, said Syed Ali Geelani.
Commenting over the statement, Syed Ali Geelani said this will only add fuel to fire and advised Indian leaders to shun their “stubborn attitude and accept ground reality”.
Geelani said that he Kashmir issue is serious and cannot be resolved through rhetoric or provocative statements and while blaming Indian leadership for their haughty egoistic approach.
Despite India utilizing all its resources and military might during the last 70 years, the issue is there and not an iota of change seems (to have happened) on the ground, said Geelani and added that instead we are counting and carrying the dead bodies on both sides of borders and with each passing day, the situation turns from bad to worse and even Singh is aware of this fact that continuous bloodshed on both sides has created catastrophe.
Threats by Indian leadership won’t force us into submission, said Geelani and the fact remains that our struggle will continue on all fronts and added that we have decided that 'no matter how much pressure Delhi builds on them" we will never surrender. We are committed with our mission that we won’t surrender or succumb to pressure said Syed Ali Geelani.
The valiant people of Kashmir have proved, time and again, that no amount of incarcerations and torture could dissuade them from pursuing their legitimate and inalienable right to self-determination, said Geelani.
Geelani in his message to UN general Secretary appealed to take notice of provocative statement of Indian home minister and use its influence for halting the bloodshed in Indian occupied state and take steps for its resolution as per resolutions accepted in United Nation Organization.
We urge the international community to take cognizance of the gross and systematic violations of human rights taking place in Jammu and Kashmir and use its influence with India to bring an end to brutal killings and strangulating the genuine voices.
The world community must also play its rightful role in facilitating a just and lasting solution of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people, said Geelani.
Meanwhile, Syed Ali Geelani on Monday expressed gratitude for government and people of Pakistan, its army for their political, moral and for their unflinching support to people of J&K, who are carrying on just struggle to achieve their inalienable right to self-determination.
While paying his glorious tributes to ex Jamaat-e-Islami Chief, late Qazi Husain Ahmad for his supreme services for Kashmir cause, said that he was instrumental in celebrating this day in 1990 in solidarity with people of Kashmir and their freedom movement. He felicitated Pakistan establishment and influenced people of Pakistan for their active role for Kashmir freedom movement.
Geelani said that people in Jammu and Kashmir are challenging a big power and Pakistan is the only country that acknowledges our right to self-determination and extends its persistent support.
Geelani in his video message said that we are highly thankful to Pakistan for their categorical support, & we hope Pakistan will play more effective and active role in this regard. Pakistan should activate all its embassies, said Syed Ali Geelani and we hope Pakistan establishment would allocate the task to highlight Kashmir issue & human rights violations in an operative method.
Pro-freedom leader in his statement said that Kashmir is internationally accepted issue and laid his stress that Pakistan establishment should exhibit persistence and endurance. Pakistan is prime party to the issue & no lasting solution is possible without its active involvement, added Geelani.

Syed Ali Geelani also applauded the commitment and dedication of Dr Mohammad Qasim Faktoo. Qasim completed his 25 years in jail and we pay tributes for his sacrifices, dedication and commitment, said Syed Ali Geelani.

He is an icon for ongoing freedom movement, said Geelani and added hailed the services of his dynasty for their unapparelled services for movement.
