Srinagar—Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday expressed fears that SAR Geelani and other Kashmiri students could be made scapegoats following the controversy over an event in Jawaharlal Nehru University.
He said that Delhi police, on the directions of RSS, have made the lives of Kashmiri students as “hell”. He cautioned that if SAR Geelani and other arrested people are not released forthwith and the harassment of the Kashmiri students does not stop, “we will call for protest in Kashmir against that and it will have serious consequences.”
The octogenarian leader said that India is day by day becoming unsafe for living for the minorities and the lower caste Hindus, and their lives, property and their dignity are in acute danger. “Geelani sahab said that do or die like situations are being created for the poor and weak people and the Hindu fascist forces are following the policies of Georg W Bush that ‘remain with us or you will be declared as enemy’,” he said in a statement.
Hurriyat Chairman also expressed his anguish over the “crackdown” of the Delhi police against the Kashmiri students.—GK
