Geelani, other Hurriyet leaders condemn arrest spree

Srinagar—In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC), Syed Ali Geelani and other Hurriyet leaders have strongly condemned the arrest spree and described it frustration of the puppet authorities.
Syed Ali Geelani in a statement issued in Srinagar urged the people to strictly follow the programme of the Hurriyet leadership and give a message to the world community and India that they were struggling for securing their birthright to self-determination.
He said those who misbehave or manhandle media persons are working for those who are hell bent on damaging and maligning the movement for their personal petty interests.
Hurriyet leaders including Mohammad Yousuf Naqash, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, Syed Bashir Andrabi, Molvi Bashir, Rafiq Ahmad Ganai, Zafar Akbar Butt, Firdous Ahmad Shah and Javaid Ahmad Mir in their separate statements in Srinagar, condemning the continued curfew and other atrocities, urged people to follow programmes of the Hurriyet leadership.
The High Court Bar Association (HCBA) has strongly condemned the unabated killing, blinding, maiming and torturing of people by Indian police, military and paramilitary personnel in the territory.
The HCBA in a meeting of its Executive Committee in Srinagar deplored that Indian forces were engaged in a systematic genocide of the Kashmiris.
By arresting the youngsters and detaining them in police stations and torturing, India will achieve nothing, it added.
The HCBA urged the UN Human Rights Council, Amnesty International and Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to take cognisance of the plight of the people of the occupied territory and put pressure on India to resolve the long-pending Kashmir dispute in accordance with the Kashmiris’ aspirations.—KMS
