Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference on Tuesday in a statement said that National Investigation Agency (NIA) is being used as a “war weapon” against leadership and local henchmen are facilitating these arbitrary measures against leadership.
The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik have given a call for complete strike/shutdown tomorrow on July 25 to protest the ‘revengeful arbitrary and illegal arrests’ of Hurriyat leaders.
Reacting sharply over arrests conducted by the NIA and producing them in New Delhi court, the Hurriyat said that Indian government “is frustrated to the extent that they frame and raid residences of pro-freedom leaders and activists on the pre-planned psychological crackdown, so that they surrender and stop voicing the sentiments of their nation, thereby covering and shielding their atrocities and barbarism against common and unarmed people.”
Hurriyat blamed Delhi authorities for “their stubborn and unrealistic approach and added that instead of resolving the issue as per aspiration of people, they are pursuing their Zafrani agenda.”
Indian agencies under well thought out plan are desperate to malign and defame our sacred movement, said Hurriyat.
Referring to ‘ploy’ and ‘deceit’ played by Delhi, Hurriyat said “they have deployed NIA sleuths and resistance leaders are being harassed and fictitious cases filed against them.
Ridiculing ruling party in Delhi, Hurriyat said that “they are not serious to solve Kashmir issue as they instead of following political means, are pursuing their repressive policy and fanatical ideology.”
They said “that these haughty measures won’t cow down our passion and we will pursue our mission till the issue is resolved as per aspirations of people.”
They assured people that all these “repressive and arbitrary measure won’t deter leadership and they will continue to raise their voice against forced occupation and highhandedness of local and Delhi authorities.”
Hurriyat added that United Nations, international community including USA, China Iran, Turkey and OIC are witness to the fact that Kashmir is a disputed state and yet to be resolved as per resulutions accepted in UNO.
