Srinagar, September 10 (TNS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani has said that the restrictions on political activities in the territory and disallowing resistance leaders to court arrest at National Investigation Agency headquarters in New Delhi signify a moral victory for resistance leadership.
Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar appealed to the United Nations and international human rights organizations to take cognizance of unabated human rightist violations in Jammu and Kashmir.
He said the resistance leaders had decided to court arrest before NIA in New Delhi for its highhandedness, revival of Ikhwan-type bullying and intimidations against leadership and people; however Indian authorities didn’t allow them to take to this democratic step.
He said that India’s national Investigation Agency was running a defamatory campaign against leadership and people. He called it psychological crackdown, and added that its main aim was to make people scare. “We won’t succumb to the pressure and will fight tooth and nail against the campaign launched by NIA,” Gilani added.
He condemned the action against Prof A.R Gilani, terming it as a brute and unjustified step and added that he was supposed to receive resistance leadership at Delhi airport.
He said that Kashmir was needed to be resolved as per UN resolutions. Meanwhile, Syed Ali Gilani expressed deep grief over the sad demise of Mohammad Abdullah Khan, close relative of Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai and mother-in-law of Mohammad Yusuf Naqash.
