Srinagar, March 26 (KNO): Rejecting and denouncing the reports circulated by Indian agencies NIA and ED about the seizing properties belonging to incarcerated leaders Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Raja Mehraj-ud-din Kalwal, Shahid-ul-Islam, Farooq Ahmad Dar, and prominent businessman Zahoor Ahmad Watali lodged in Tihar jail, Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday said that health of these allegations against the leaders is known to everybody and people very well understand the mindset behind such baseless accusations. Geelani in a statement issued to KNO said “it is propaganda and baseless, aimed to gratify their vote bank and as long as Kashmiries are hit hard, the power athirst forces are guaranteed Narinder Modi to stay in power.” He said that Indian leadership is using the NIA and ED as a tool of oppression and suppression against the Kashmiries, Indian Muslims and their political opponents and not does it stand any moral, ethical or democratic ground. Geelani said that the government of India is very well aware about the fact that the Hurriyat leaders have not amassed any illegal properties, but claiming to seize the property at the time of election in India has put a big question mark on the competence and efficiency of their much hyped investigative institution, which has dug so low to pave its worse in every trivial issue without any documentary proof. He said that in order to win parliament elections, Narendr Modi claimed that his government held air strikes in Pakistan, but when the international community, opposition and sane voices in India raised question over this claim, Indian government launched a crackdown on pro-freedom organizations, political leadership, and unarmed people of Kashmir to silence opposite voices. Terming the Kashmir dispute a reality like Himalaya, Hurriyat chairman said that Indian rulers and their supporters should bear it in mind that muscular approach can never force a nation to submission and curbing the political space and arresting the political leadership in forged and fake charges and creating fear psychoses cannot lease them forever. Pro-freedom leader said that people of India in majority have been intoxicated with a venomous propaganda against the freedom movement of Kashmir and its leadership by their fascist government with the help of their hyper-national and biased media houses. In such times, it’s the responsibility of Kashmir’s conscious journalists and writers to being forth the reality of oppressed Kashmiries. It’s understood that Indian propaganda takes front page headlines in Newspapers, but it is also important to highlight the sufferings and hardships of Kashmiri people at the hands of Indian military might.(KNO)
