Chairman, Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Geelani Saturday said after creating war hysteria, the “India political and armed elite” were forced to stage-manage “surgical strikes” to teach Pakistan a “lesson”.
Geelani in his statement said, “By doing so a lid has been put on the roaring voices of revenge and sarcastic reverberation of inaction; and to make the whole nation celebrate, especially biased media houses and their fascist and fanatic anchors.”
Geelani said that believing the media and army, they have not targeted Pakistan army installations or personnel, but have struck at the camp of “terrorists” and killed them. There is nothing new and extraordinary in this as Indian army has been doing so for the last 27 years, he said.
He said, “None of the countries can’t go to war as they all know fully well what the collision of the nuclear countries actually means.”
“Creating the war like situation, refusing to attaend the SAARC forum, threatening the water blockade, isolating Pakistan at global level are the cunning mechanics to hoodwink the world community and to divert their attention and focus from the root cause of all these evils,” Geelani said, adding, “ War has not yet started, but its ramification and repercussions are already being borne by the poor and innocent population on both sides of the fence, when they started the mass migration.”
God forbids, Geelani said, “If good sense fails to prevail and root causes of this standoff is left unattended then millions of people, their life and livelihood, habit and habitat are sure to vanish in a blink of an eye and there has to be a long wait for centuries to see a glimpse of life in this region again.”
Geelani said that only factor to ignite this human disaster is surely none other than the unresolved and unsettled issue of Kashmir.
Geelani said that “repression and uncivilized conduct of oppressor” is expected but more lethal and deadly weaponry used by the “collaborators and stooges of this oppression” is much more worrisome and distressing.
Geelani while referring to mainstream politicians said, “Whenever forced and unethical rule is threatened, these stooges come to their rescue and they shamelessly bargain, not only on their dignity, honor and conscience for petty and trivial interests and lust of power, but also the sentiments and emotions of the population.”
Geelani said: “Had they cared, represented and stood for the genuine rights of people, India would have been forced into subjugation. But they wickedly played the sentiment card for their own bargains, conveying and convincing the oppressor to accommodate only them, lest the voice for right to self determination is sure to reverberate and resound. History provided them ample chances to rectify their misdeeds and today also they have got this opportunity once again to side with their bruised nation and minimize their miseries.”
Geelani said that international community, especially UN will also equally be responsible “for the catastrophe of this conflict”, if any, “as it too failed to live up to the expectations of the nations”.
