SRINAGAR : Chairman Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Friday paid glorious tributes to Maqbool Bhat on his 33rd death anniversary, said, “We are duty bound to safeguard these sacrifices”.
While reiterating his demand for the return of the mortal remains of Mohammad Maqbool Bhat and Mohammad Afzal Guru, he said that although it is purely a human issue, instead India refused to return their mortal remains.
Geelani while ridiculing Indian authorities for their reluctance said no country other than India set this wrong precedence and in this way its claim of a largest democracy in the world is getting badly exposed.
Reiterating joint leadership’s call for complete and state-wide shut down on 11th February, Geelani said that nations never forget their heroes. He said that they are source of inspiration for us and the best way of paying tributes to them is that the nation should not forget these brave sons of the soil, who had sacrificed their “present” for the “future” of the nation.
“We have presented unparalleled sacrifice and now it is very imperative and obligatory to safeguard them, said Geelani. We need to check loopholes & control our feeble points as all these weaknesses harm cherished mission of our martyrs”, he said.
Syed Ali Geelani called nation to exhibit steadfastness and unanimity, and keep aloof from India and its local stooges. Don’t support them as all these activities prove detrimental for our freedom movement, added Geelani.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat Chairman Syed Ali Geelani condemned the arrest of the JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik and others, said that this is the highhandedness of the puppet regime to suppress the voice of the pro-freedom people and further said that all these arbitrary measures won’t deter us from pursuing our cherished goal.
