Srinagar: Deeply concerned over the continued crackdown on pro-freedom leaders, their relatives, activists particularly youth, Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani has said that the “rhetoric” of India being the world’s largest democracy is “mere hoax and deceit”.
He said Government of India’s “highhandedness and brutality, aggressive military and coercive measures” have tarnished every fabric of democratic norm, if any, in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Geelani while condemning the shifting of Amir Jamaat-e-Islami Dr. Hamid Fayaz to Kathua and crackdown on Jamaat-e-Islami, JKLF and other pro-freedom leaders and activists, said that every political event in India brings worries and miseries for the helpless inmates of Jammu and Kashmir.
“As now the election activities are on peak in whole of India, in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, it opens the doors of prisons, interrogation centers and police stations,” he said.
“To make this militarized election drama a success every sane voice for basic and fundamental rights is strangulated through the barrel of gun and by the blunt sword of investigative institutions,” he added.
Hurriyat (G) chairman said that suppressing genuine aspiration of people through unparalleled force and might has always catastrophic ramifications and non resolution of this nuclear flashpoint has proved it many times.
He said that nobody on earth has ever succeeded in curbing the freedom sentiment and India stands as an example itself.
So early it understands the reality, better it will be for the world in general and sub-continent in particular, Geelani said.
