While terming the killing of two innocent students by the SOG forces in Kakpora Pulwama as most painful and heartbreaking incident, Chairman Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Geelani said that the situations in the state are becoming intolerable day by day and the value of human lives in this region have been reduced to ashes. He said that calling or observing of a one day shutdown after each innocent killing although does not meet the demands of the situation but there is no other option left by the government and after every bloodshed, the government impose curfew and come up with thousands of heavily armed undisciplined and inhuman forces on the roads to block the people’s protest. In a statement to KNS, Syed Ali Geelani said that many voices were heard with regarding to the finding alternatives of the strike calls but so far no concrete or practicable idea has come to fore from any quarter. He said that the discussions in news papers and on social media with regarding to the freedom struggle of Kashmir is a healthy sign and it indicates that our younger generation is showing a keen interest in their national issues. But where the worst kind of martial law is in force and the political struggle had been practically banned, how is it possible for anybody at such a place to perform his best and according to the expectations. Syed Ali Geelani said that we are facing a worst kind of imperialist power who knows very little about the human and moral values. This country is although claiming to be the largest democracy in the world but its policies with regarding to the Kashmir issue does not match to its democratic claims. They act here with such a blind and wild force that the human lives are like worms and insect in front of that. Hurriyat (G) Chairman said that a responsible leadership have to take every aspect and outcome in mind while taking any decision in this kind of situation. We consider this struggle as worship like the Nimaz (prayers) and Fasting and the decisions are taken after thorough discussion and deliberations. However whenever any solid and practicable alternative will come to fore from any quarter with regarding to the course of action, we will welcome that. Syed Ali Geelani said that I personally feel a deep pain in my heart for the killing of two innocent students in Pulwama and I wonder that for how long will our nation bear this worst kind of atrocities and autocracy from India. But in this situation we have to be firm and strong over our stand which is also an only option for us and our resolve is that we will never give up our rights and till India is forcibly occupying our land, we will continue our struggle in any way. Syed Ali Geelani said that the silence of the world community over the innocent killings in Kashmir at the hands of Indian occupational forces is not only a criminal silence but it is also a biased approach. World powers are following double standards and they ignore Kashmir issue because of the Muslim factor.
