SRINAGAR, Aug 13 : Syed Ali Shah Geelani has said the nation that resorts to usurpation and deprives others of their freedom, loses every right to celebrate its freedom.
Looking forward to your full participation in the shutdown call on August 15 and observe Indian Independence Day as a Black Day, Syed Ali Shah Geelani in his appeal to the Kashmiri people on Friday.
It is worth mentioning here that Syed Ali Shah Geelani in a statement issued on 2nd August had said that we reject illegal Indian occupation through suppression, violence and gun. Syed Ali Geelani had appealed Kashmiris to observe complete shutter down strike and civil curfew on 5th and 15th August in occupied Kashmir.
A statement quoting Syed Ali Shah Geelani was by Saiyyed Abdullah Gilani, Special Representative of Syed Ali Geelani in Islamabad on 2nd August (Monday).
Syed Ali Geelani said that it has passed two years to the naked aggression of Indian government of 5th August 2019 against the Kashmiri masses under which Kashmir was annexed with India illegally, immorally and unconstitutionally. He said in these two years where the governments in whole world were dealing with the crisis emerged in form of coronavirus in the same time the Indian government under the garb of this crisis left no stone unturned to implement its heinous designs.
Syed Ali Geelani said that on the one hand the process of implementing new black laws and while providing land to the non-state citizens and adjusting them in occupied Kashmir and changing the demography of the region and while changing the Muslim majority into the minority and while distorting the ground situation of the region through unholy efforts of suppression, violence and hypocrisy is going on with full force and at the same time the project of settling the pundits in separate colonies while brining them back is being implemented with fast pace.
Syed Ali Shah Geelani said that we will always welcome the pundit community back in their home as they are the integral part of Kashmiri community, adding that if they will live jointly and with harmony here like past then they will be welcomed but if settling them in separate colonies through a conspiracy will not be acceptable for the Kashmiris. He said that these colonies will be like an unwanted thing for the society and will be permanent source of threat against the unity and brotherhood so there is need to resist this heinous plan forcefully.
Syed Ali Shah Geelani said that as I said earlier that we should not remain satisfy while observing 5th August as a traditional black day but should give it form of “Awareness Day” and should make themselves and others aware about the heinous Indian designs and naked aggression and repercussions hidden behind this action. He said that in this regard on 5th and 15th August we should not only observe the complete shutter down strike and civil curfew for recording our protest but should also hold gatherings at our homes and inform the new generation about the important incidents of history of Kashmir and should seek pardon from Almighty Allah for our wrong doings and also seek help from Almighty Allah for improvement our matters and circumstances.
Syed Ali Shah Geelani said that it is responsibility of non-resident Kashmiris and especially people living in Pakistan and other countries to gather outside the Indian embassies in the world in large numbers and record their protest forcefully and should convey message to the world that whether anyone supports us or not and anyone helps us or not the Kashmiri nation has not quitted and will not quit demand of its rights and freedom bases on justice. Syed Ali Shah Geelani said that with the Blessings of Almighty Allah our struggle and caravan will remain continue till the rise of the dawn of freedom.
