Geelani pays tribute to slain militants


Srinagar | (PTK): Paying rich tributes to the slain militants of Hajan encounter and a militant Rayees Ahmad Dar of Kakpora, chairman Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani today said that the youth lay their lives to end the age old slavery of their nation, putting a huge responsibility on our shoulders to honor these sacrifices and take the movement to its logical end.

Criticizing the criminal silence of the world community, Geelani said that their insensitivity and unconcern is the sole reason for this unabated bloodshed.

The pro-freedom leader said that the world forums, who stand witness to our dispute, act as mute spectators, thereby legitimizing and legalizing the brutalities unleashed in this region for the last 70 years.

“These super powers acted to their tall claims, India could not have dared to continue its repression and peace would have been ensured since long. Paying glorious tributes to the martyrs,” Geelani said in a statement.

He said the youth are on the forefront of the movement whether laying their precious lives, or livelihood, or facing the hardships in jails.

“They bravely and willingly offer their today for our tomorrow. Our nation has used every democratic and peaceful means for about 40 years to fight this aggression—but India has responded ruthlessly and beastly without giving an ear to the aspirations and just voices, negating the historical legitimacy of this dispute. This arrogance, haughtiness and persistent denial can’t hold water for long and India has to come to terms with the writing on the wall, lest this unresolved and unaddressed volcano can erupt and burst anytime—engulfing millions of people in this region,” Geelani said.

He said that it is the 4th generation which is daring Indian autocratic, illegal and forced occupation and warned that the tsunami of human heads especially youth is always uncontrollable and unstoppable. (PTK)
