Such stale thinking basic reason for JK’s political uncertainty: Geelani


Srinagar, Feb 16: Terming Army Chief Bipin Rawat’s statement an apparent threat to “carry killing spree of civilians”, Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani today said that the forces want to “strengthen their occupation and even won’t hesitate to kill each soul for this purpose.”
The Hurriyat leader, while referring to the Army Chief’s statement said “their arrogance and stale thinking is the basic reason for continuous bloodshed and political uncertainty in the state.”
“People of state and particularly the youth are up against this hegemony and suppression,” he said.
Commenting over the situations arising during encounters, Geelani said that people exhibit their extreme valour and without any fear even face tough and dangerous situations.
“It is clear indication that the whole of Kashmir is against the occupation and should have served an alarm for Indian rulers that movement is not confined to a few but whole nation is determined to offer their serves for cherished goal,” he said.
Geelani said it is “scary that instead of taking this development a serious, they are beating the same bush, parroting about unfound theories and want to move us with the barrel of gun”.
“This won’t help them as in past they tried these methods to disassociate us from our stance and in future they won’t achieve anything, said Geelani.
He said the loss of precious lives is disheartening and nobody on earth will derive pleasure over human losses.
Geelani suggested army chief to revisit annals of history and said that three full-fledged wars were fought between India and Pakistan and lakhs of people were assassinated and however the issue remained unresolved.
