Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRI­NA­GAR—Hur­riyat (G) Chair­man Syed Ali Gee­lani on Satur­day said that the gov­ern­ment had ac­cepted de­feat by ban­ning po­lit­i­cal pro­grammes and ar­rest­ing Hur­riyat lead­ers.

In a state­ment, Gee­lani con­demned the ban­ning of Eid-Gah Challo pro­gramme and house im­pris­on­ment of Hur­riyat lead­ers. “Ban­ning of po­lit­i­cal pro­grams and ar­rest of lead­ers is an open state ter­ror­ism,” said Gee­lani. “…im­pos­ing cur­few in Sri­na­gar city on the death an­niver­saries of Sha­heed Mir­waiz Molvi Mo­ham­mad Fa­rooq, Sha­heed Khawja Abdul Gani Lone and the Hawal Mar­tyrs is the frus­tra­tion and ac­cep­tance of de­feat by the gov­ern­ment.” He said that Kash­mir is a “po­lice state where gov­ern­ment is rul­ing the peo­ple on gun point.” “The free­dom of ex­pres­sion is al­ready banned here and now Miss Me­hbooba Mufti can go to any ex­tent to ap­pease the com­mu­nal forces of In­dia,”said Gee­lani. He said that In­dia is us­ing ev­ery op­pres­sive and im­pe­ri­al­is­tic mea­sure to sup­press the peace­ful and gen­uine voices of the peo­ple of Jammu & Kash­mir so that this coun­try can con­tinue its forced and il­le­gal mil­i­tary oc­cu­pa­tion of this state.—GK
