Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday called for an end to the hostility between India and Pakistan.
“The composite dialogue between all stakeholders will definitely make an end to hostility between two nuclear countries and will open avenues for peace and reconciliation in South Asia,” Geelani said in a statement.
Meanwhile, a Hurriyat (G) spokesperson strongly condemned NIA for not presenting detainees in court, saying they are prolonging their cases on one pretext or the other.
Reiterating concern over the plight of Kashmiri prisoners lodged in different jails particularly in Tihar jail, he said those arrested by NIA and ED are facing toughest times of their lives as they are not being presented on scheduled dates for hearing in respective courts.
“Indian judiciary has already succumbed before the NIA. It is evident by the fact that it is not passing a single bail order in favour of Kashmiri prisoners despite the fact that ED or NIA has completely failed in proving any charges against the accused including Shabir Shah, Peer Saif Ullah, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Raja Meraj u Din Kalwal, Shahid ul Islam, Nayiem Ahmad Khan, Shahid Yousuf, Mohd Aslam Wani, Zahoor Watali and Farooq Ahmad Dar,” the amalgam said in the statement.
“It is a murder of justice,” Hurriyat (G) spokesperson said adding “Indian authorities through frivolous charges and delaying tactics are denying justice. Those detained by NIA and ED are subjected to political vendetta”.
Hailing the sacrifices of detainees, he said: “they are being targeted psychologically to force them to submission, however, all these tactics won’t break their resolve”.
Meanwhile, Syed Ali Geelani expressed deep grief over the brutal and merciless killing of an innocent child Umar Farooq in Kupwara.
In a statement, Geelani said, “We are shocked over the death of a budding kid.” He prayed for the grieved family to bear this irreparable loss.
He also expressed grief over the death of Mohd Ismaeel Gilkar, brother-in-law of incarcerated leader Gh Mohammad Khan Sopori.
Extending his condolence to the grieved family, Geelani said that “his contribution for the ongoing freedom movement is praiseworthy and he throughout his life faced hardships because of his affiliation with resistance movement”. (GNS)
