Srinagar: Strongly condemning the army firing during which four teenage girls were injured in Shopian, Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman, Syed Ali Geelani said that this is what the Indian Army means by the much hyped ‘ceasefire’.
Coming heavily on the army, Geelani said that they are the same people who “butchered and massacred” hundreds of youth irrespective of their being armed or un-armed, wounded, maimed and blinded thousands of innocents just for peaceful protests in demand of their basic rights.
“Now shamelessly, they arrange the ‘so-called Iftar Party’, to show their artificial love and affection with these bereaved families,” Geelani said.
He applauded and hailed the people of Shopian who opposed these fake gestures.
Hurriyat chairman said that when people of that area didn’t wanted such an event to happen, why the men in uniform forced their dictation on gunpoint.
“When people opposed they fired to silence them by bullets,” he said, adding, “their Army will continue to conduct such Iftar parties to mingle with the people so that they could wash off their hands drenched in our blood, but people are cautioned to behave like their Shopian brethren and not to participate in such activities.”
