Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani Saturday paid tributes to slain militant Mugees Mir, saying that “more than six lakh people have been killed during forced rule and Mugees too was bestowed with an eternal life by Almighty Allah”..
Geelani in statement said: “As a true Muslim, we believe that martyrs never die instead are alive”.
Geelani said Allah says in Holy Quran, “And do not think of those killed in Allah's path as dead, indeed they are alive they rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah.”
Geelani added “That is the reason that every true believer derives satisfaction and never regrets, however it is very unfortunate that Indian authorities have crossed all limits and are inflicting atrocities and killing innocents.”
Geelani expressed dismay over what he called the silence maintained by sensible people in India, saying that “they should ask their rulers to fulfill their pledge and ascertain the aspiration of people in Jammu and Kashmir.”
Referring to slain police personnel, Geelani said that “we equally feel for him and it is quite sad” and added that prevailing bloodshed is the outcome of forced rule.
Geelani said” “they are desperate to evolve a civil war like situation in Kashmir. People are well aware about the follies being played by them.”
Geelani said that “we are hopeful and believe that this era will come to an end soon.”
Geelani condemning the unabated detentions, curbs and bullying by authorities, said: “Despite their tall claims and parroting about upholding the democratic norms, they don’t even allow us to participate in funerals of our slain youth.”
He condemned the house detention of Hurriyat General Secretary Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Hurriyat spokesperson Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar, Muhammad Ashraf Laya, Mohammad Yasin Ataie, Omar Adil Dar and Syed Imtiaz Haider and added that since past seven years he has been in continuous house detention and “police authorities don’t allow him to venture out or participate in funerals”.
Appealing international organization for human rights, Geelani impressed upon them to take cognizance of this “forced rule and worsening situations in State”.
Meanwhile, a separate Hurriyat (G) statement said on the directions of Geelani, a deputation comprising of Mudasir Nadvi, Mustafa Sultan, led by Bashir Ahmad Qureshi, visited Parimpora Srinagar and participated in funeral prayers of Mugees Mir.
