While terming the complete shutdown in the entire state on the appeal of Hurriyat (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani as a clear referendum in favour of disbanding the terrorist force of VDC, Hurriyat Conference (G) thanked the people that they are understanding the seriousness of the issues and their political maturity is growing day by day. Terming the silence of the Mufti Mohammad Sayeed over the public pressure of disbanding the VDCs as mysterious and criminal, Hurriyat (G) said that we will continue our public awareness campaign in this regard and we will do everything to highlight the terrorism of the VDCs. In a statement to KNS, Hurriyat (G) Spokesman Ayaz Akbar said that the way people protested in the entire state on the appeal of Syed Ali Geelani proves that all the people are against the existence of the VDC terrorist force and they are united in the demand for disbanding this terrorist force. The people want that all the terrorist activities of the VDC members should be investigated by some independent agency and all the involved persons should be brought to books. Hurriyat (G) Spokesman expressed his surprise that on the one hand Nirmal Singh and other BJP people are openly defending the communal and terrorist VDC force and on the other hand Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and his daughter are silent over this serious issue and they don’t even talk about it. The spokesman said that Mufti Sayeed actually does not want to upset his partners. He although want to transfer the Chief Ministership to his daughter and he is apprehensive that upsetting BJP will hamper that proposal. Hurriyat (G) spokesman said that it is the serious situation that the state head is silent over the terrorist activities of the armed communal forces. This situation has terrorized the Muslims of Pir Panjal and Chenab Valley and they are very much concerned with the protection of their lives, property and their dignity. Hurriyat (G) said that the Muslims of the Jammu division will not be left on the mercy of the VDC terrorists and we will continue our campaign for demanding the disbanding of this criminal force. Hurriyat (G) expressed its deep concern that the police in Doda district have started to harass the people who are raising their voices against the VDC terrorists. According to the reports, SHO Doda police station has threatened to kill a Muslim youth Ayaz Ahmad Wani. Hurriyat (G) cautioned that if anything untoward happened with the said youth, that will have serious consequences and all its responsibility will be on police and the civil administration.
