Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Saturday said that an extraordinary meeting of the amalgam’s Majlis-e-Shoora (consultative body) was held at Hyderpora which was convened by chairman Syed Ali Geelani.
The meet discussed at length the prevailing political situation of Jammu and Kashmir, with reference to the ongoing movement for right to self-determination.
Hurriyat (G) chief spokesperson in a statement said: “After taking a serious note of the broad discussion, opinions and proposals put forward by Shoora members, Hurriyat chairman in his presidential address said that the people of Kashmir are engaged in a legitimate democratic and political movement of right to self-determination.”
“We have been subjugated and victimized for our genuine political beliefs,” the spokesperson quoted Geelani as saying.
Geelani also condemning the use of “brute” force and military might to “suppress the freedom sentiments of the people”. He advised Majlis-e-Shoora not to succumb to the “repression and suppression” by authorities.
The meeting reiterated the Hurriyat’s stand that Kashmir is a political and human issue which needs an early resolution according to the wishes and aspirations of the people, for a prosperous subcontinent, the spokesperson said.
He said Geelani urged the United Nations to use its official position and prevail upon India to show willingness to resolve this long pending issue in the larger interests of permanent peace and progress of the whole South Asia.
The meeting paid rich tributes to the militants killed in Pulwama, Shopian and others. It also hailed the steadfastness and commitment shown by the “prisoners of conscience” languishing in and outside jails.
The meeting also strongly condemned the “vile action” of banning Jamaat-e-Islami, a purely religious organization and pro-freedom political party JKLF.
The meeting decided to organize a seminar in relation to “Message of Ramadan” at Hyderpora on May 26, 2019.
