Geelani pays tribute to slain militants

Paying tributes to five slain militants of Pakharpora Budgam and Saghipora Sopore encounters, Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani Thursday said that the youth lay down their lives “to end the age old slavery of their nation, putting a huge responsibility on our shoulders to honor these sacrifices and take the movement to its logical end.”

Criticizing the “criminal’ silence of the world community, Geelani in his statement said: “Their insensitivity and unconcern is the sole reason for this unabated bloodshed.”

“The world forums, who stand witness to our dispute, act as mute spectators, thereby legitimizing and legalizing the brutalities unleashed in this region for the last 70 years. Had these super powers acted on their tall claims, India could not have dared to continue its repression and peace would have been ensured since long,” he said.

Geelani said the youth are on the forefront of the movement whether laying down their precious lives, or livelihood, or facing the hardships in jails.
He said “They bravely and willingly offer their today for our tomorrow.”
