Srinagar:- Syed Ali Geelani on Monday expressed shock and grief over forces reports about the number of militant causalities during current year, saying it is a big loss and a national tragedy.
While referring to the reports, Geelani said that authorities admit and it is synonymous to the fact that they are carrying the occupation through their military might and added that people while resisting unconstitutional and illegal occupation, have since past 71 years presented more than 6 lakh souls.
India has waged war on innocent civilians, said Geelani and while referring to the so-called instrument of accession, endorsed by then Maharaja, added that it is neither valid nor authentic.
Geelani said that as per guidelines laid in independence and partition plan, the Maharaja’s and kings had no right to exercise their will regarding the future course or decide political destiny of their domain or states and added that people had right to decide their destiny and future status of their states.
Geelani referring to the historical events of past, said that Hari Singh was not an authority to annex or instrument an accession with India or any country as he was fleeing and leaving towards Jammu.Therefore, there is no constitutional, legal, political or moral status of this so-called instrument of accession, added Geelani.
Despite their tall claims and parroting about being a great democratic country, they are depriving 15 million people from their birth right, Geelani said.
Hurriyat Chairman said how Indian authorities can think that the nation that has suffered and presented such great sacrifices ,will bear the burden of forced occupation.
Geelani suggested authorities in New Delhi to allow people to exercise their right to self-determination, saying that their predecessors have made commitment in all international forums.
This is the moral responsibility of India to fulfil their commitment and allow us to live peaceful life, said Geelani.
Geelani while paying his tribute to all martyrs, said that these youths while laying their precious lives, are nourishing a sacred cause with their blood and in his appeal to people asked to safeguard their sacrifices and stay away from those strengthening forced and illegal occupation.
Syed Ali Geelani paid his glorious tributes to Ali Kadal martyrs and said we are dutybound to follow their mission till its logical end.
