Srinagar,18 April-2014(GNS): The Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Thursday paid rich tributes to the militants killed in Khrew and Ahmad Nagar encounters with forces.
In a statement issued to GNS, Geelani said: “these youth are not sacrificing their lives for any property, benefits or status but they are fighting for the freedom of Kashmiri Nation from the forced occupation of India and the people who are supporting the pro-Indian politicians for little and meager benefits, are not only forgetting the favors of these bold and brave youth but they are making sellout with the hot blood of the martyrs.”
Reiterating boycott call, he said “the participation in the election ‘drama’ is equal to fastening the collar of slavery around the necks of their children and future generations of Kashmir, which lengthens our path to freedom.”
The octogenarian leader addressed a condolence meeting over telephone in Khrew area of Pulwama district which was held in the remembrance of slain militants by the Tehreek-i-Hurriyat.
“We have sacrificed about 6 lakh lives so far and this process of killings is continuing and is happening every day. These youths are sacrificing themselves for the freedom of Kashmiri nation which have been forcibly snatched by India and they are not fighting for wealth, property or any post or status but they want a prosperous and free Kashmir,” he said.
“The Kashmiri nation is duty bound to protect these precious sacrifices and they should not indulge in any such activity which will harm this sacred cause for which these youth gave sacrifices,” Geelani said.
While terming all pro-India political parties including National Conference, PDP, State Congress, BJP, Peoples Conference, CPI (M) and other independent candidates who are ‘taking part in the election drama’ as ‘criminals of the nation’, the pro-freedom leader said: “none of them are beneficial for the Kashmir people and whoever reaches the chair of power, left no stone unturned to harm our collective and national cause for their petty and personal benefits.”
“ Today, these politicians are begging for votes in the name of water, electricity and roads, but later on this exercise is sold as a justification for the forced occupation of India and India is projecting this election drama as a referendum in its favour in the international forum,” he said.
