Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Wednesday condemned NIA summons to Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Syed Naseem Geelani.
In a statement Geelani said, “Earlier also NIA and ED arrested scores of pro-freedom workers including Dr Ghulam Muhammad Bhat, Shabir Ahmad Shah, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Peer Saifullah, Ayaz Akbar, Raja Mehraj-ud-din Kalwal, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Farooq Ahmad Dar, Shahid-ul-Islam, Syed Shahid Yousuf, Syed Shakeel Ahmad on fictitious and false charges of Hawala and terror funding, but could not prove even a single case.”
“Countless raids on various people have not yielded anything to substantiate their narrative, but New Delhi’s media theatrics and their paid channels put every Kashmiri to the media trial even before judicial proceedings which has dented the image of this investigating agency to the extent that in Kashmir it’s used as a tool to strangulate every voice of dissent and with vast and unparalleled impunity. It has been authorized to poke in everybody’s personal life,” Geelani said.
He said, “Kashmir issue is globally recognized reality and such mean and timid tactics can in no way downplay its importance.”Geelani said that “New Delhi needs to come out of the denial mode and show some sincerity, if not to us at least to its own people as this unresolved flash point can trigger anytime a human destruction and unthinkable destruction.”
