No question of surrender,

Kashmir News Observer (KNO)

Srinagar, June 29 (KNO) ; Rejecting any possibility of submission or surrender before the Indian imperialism and military might, Hurriyat chairman, Syed Ali Geelani termed the fresh spurt in the character assassination campaign launched by the NIA , against the resistance leadership as a brazen plot to prolong the illegal and unjustified detention of the said leadership. Hailing the exemplary and praiseworthy role played by veteran pro-freedom leader, Syeda Asiya Andrabi and her family, Geelani condemned the sinister designs of NIA to lodge baseless case against her.

It is the well-thought out ploy to defame leadership on flimsy and fabricated charges said Geelani. This is a vicious character assassination campaign of NIA and it illustrates frustration of Indian authorities, said he and advised Indian authorities to take lesson from its own history of freedom struggle against the Britishers. Hurriyat chairman also affirmed history of all revolutionary movements of the world, saying history bears testimony to this fact that any indigenous popular movement for right to self determination has never been defeated or eliminated by imperialistic forces whatsoever.

The veteran Hurriyat leader while emphasising to shun path of vengeance, character assassination, of resistance leadership of high respect and dignity and to prolong their unjustified detentions, said ,” it is better to resolve the long pending Kashmir dispute for peaceful and prosperous future of the sub-continent which has virtually turned a nuclear flash point.”

Geelani paid his rich tributes to the valuable and admirable sacrifices rendered by senior leaders of resistance movement lodged in Tihar jail including Shabir Ahmad Shah , Ghulam Mohammad Bhat, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Peer Saifullah, Ayaz Akbar, Meraj-u-Din Kalwal, Shahid-ul-Islam, Nayiem Ahmed Khan, Shahid Yousuf, Muhammad Aslam Wani, Farooq Ahmed Dar, Zahoor Ahmad Watali, besides Masarat Allam Bhat, Muzaffar Ahmed Dar.
