Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Monday urged Pakistan to get an urgent meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) convened to find a way to out to stop killings in Kashmir.
Geelani hailed the statement of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan that the issue of “gross human rights violations” in Kashmir will be taken up at Unite Nations Security Council. “Pakistan, being a prime partner of the dispute, needs to do much more than statements as the killings here seems to have no end,” he said in a statement.
He urged Pakistan to have vigorous consultations with likeminded, friendly and Muslim nations to convene and urgent meeting of OIC and put a check on killings in Kashmir.
Geelani expressed profound grief and shock over Pulwama killings and termed these as just an addition to the hundreds of “massacres like Gawkadal, Alamgari Bazar, Handwara, Zakoora, Kupwara, Hawal, Khanyar, Sopore, Baramulla, Lalchowk, Tangpora, Kashtwar, Chatisinghpora, Brakpora, Wandhama, Mehjoor Nagar, Nadi Marg.”
He said, “Even the die-hard hyper nationalist people, in India with little humanness left, couldn’t hold back their tears after witnessing the bloodbath of innocents.”
Geelani said the “inhuman and ruthless” attitude of the forces and the loss of hundreds of thousands of precious lives is a “blot on New Delhi.”
