Restrictions not to deter our onward struggle
Srinagar—In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Geelani has emphasized that the ideological and sentimental attachment of the Kashmiri people with Pakistan is deep rooted and no reasonable person can deny this fact.
Syed Ali Geelani, talking to different delegations in Srinagar said that no amount of state terrorism could dent the affinity of the peoples of Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir. The bonds, he added, between the two can be well understood by hoisting of Pakistani flags and pro-Pak slogans in Kashmir. He said that India had forcibly occupied Jammu and Kashmir against the will of the Kashmiri people who were struggling to change the status quo.
Senior Hurriyet leader and the Chairman of his faction, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a media interview reiterated that there was no option for the Government of India but to address the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the people of Kashmir. He reiterated that the resistance leadership will continue to jointly oppose anti-Kashmir policies of the PDP-BJP puppet regime in the territory.
APHC Secretary General, Shabbir Ahmad Shah and Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi talking to media men emphasized that the restrictions on the activities of liberation leaders would not deter them from continuing the liberation struggle till it reached its logical conclusion.
