Srinagar: Hurriyat patriarch Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday paid rich tributes to the two armed youth killed in Kreeri Pattan.
Geelani, in a statement, said that “blood-bath, death and destruction all around the valley is only because of Indian rulers”, who very cunningly are still in denial mode.
He said that even after “massacres on daily basis”, men in uniform are not satisfied, they kill youth in broad-day-light and in the dead of night raid their houses to pick them up and subject them to “ruthless treatment” in police stations and other interrogation centers.
Strongly condemning the police raid in Shopian and arresting more than a dozen youth, octogenarian leader said that local police and forces feel it hard to tolerate a conscious, freedom loving youth especially if he dares to narrate “brutality and atrocities”.
He said that agencies push our youth to wall where they leave no other way for them than to take an extreme step, so that the occupation forces have a reason to eliminate them.
