Geelani reiterates shutdown call in poll bound areas on May 06 in Pulwama, Shopian
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani reiterated the call for complete election boycott and shutdown on Monday May 06 in Pulwama and Shopian districts and said that by observing a boycott we can peacefully and meaningfully once again highlight the Kashmir issue in international level that the people of Jammu & Kashmir wants get rid of the Indian forcible occupation and wants settlement of this long pending dispute in accordance to the wishes and aspirations of the people of the state.
Terming the election process as a purely military operation, pro-freedom leader castigated the Indian attitude to create a war like situation in the grab of so-called elections.
“People are being killed, maimed, blinded with pellets and randomly arrested on one pretext or the other,” Hurriyat chairman added.
Condemning the hypocrisy displayed by all the local regional pro-Indian political parties the Hurriyat chairman said that it has been a common feature of such stooges to be more loyal than the king and to go any extent to beat and kill their fellow people for their petty political interests. People have not forgotten the political slangs and abusive remarks used by these Indian stooges when they brazenly tried to justify the innocent killings by saying “the boys were not supposed to get toffee and milk, or kill the people and threw their dead bodies in the river Jhelum and even to suggest bombardment of Pakistan”, reminded Hurriyat leader.
Pro-Indian leaders have time and again proved themselves political chameleons, changing colours to hoodwink the people, he added.
Expressing serious concern over deploying heavy contingents of forces especially around the whole districts of Pulwama and Shopian in order to create a dreadful atmosphere to harass and suffocate the people on the so-called poling day, Hurriyat chairman hailed the steadfastness of the people of Pulwama and Shopian districts and assured them that people of Jammu and Kashmir fully support their resolve and commitment for the sacred mission of right to self-determination.
Pro-freedom leader urged the international community to rise to the occasion and come to the rescue of people of Kashmir who have been victimized for their legitimate demand of right to self-determination and help resolve the Kashmir issue at the earliest, in accordance with the wishes of the people.
