Sonia playing down the situation in Kashmir, says Geelani


Srinagar, MTT News Desk: A day after the Congress President, Sonia Gandhi expressed satisfaction over what she said “remarkable progress” made in Occupied State of Jammu & Kashmir (OSJK), the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC), Syed Ali Shah Geelani has said that Sonia is deliberately playing down the situation in OSJK to conceal the realities.

Syed Ali Shah Geelani in a statement in Srinagar said, “The statement of Gandhi (Sonia) is nothing but a crude joke with the people of Kashmir. The drama is enacted with an eye on the next year’s General Elections.”

Sonia has expressed satisfaction over “remarkable progress” made in the territory but emphasised the need to “take note of the cry of pain and anguish” emanating from the people.

The APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, demanded the return of the mortal remains of Muhammad Afzal Guru and Muhammad Maqbool Butt.

If Congress president is sincere in resolving Kashmir issue then she should accept the demand of the Kashmiris on priority and return the mortal remains to their families,” Geelani said.

Syed Ali Shah Geelani, who is also the President of Jammu & Kashmir Tahreek e Hurriyat (TeH), said that since the Congress president herself was a woman she can well understand the pain of a woman who was even not allowed to meet her husband prior to his execution, Geelani referred to the widow of Muhmammad Afzal Guru.

The APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani criticised the Congress for continuation of the draconian Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA).

One Response to Sonia playing down the situation in Kashmir, says Geelani

  1. Raja Habib Jalib says:

    The World must see the brutality of Indian troops in Kashmir ,where a 9,year old boy is killed by them ,which clearly shows that Indian army has lost all its human values,and special powers given to them has made Indian army worst then animal. The crime against humanity in held Kashmir is a clear sign of more trouble coming in to that area in future. The killing of inncocent civilians ,curfew, targetting opolitical leadership of Kashmir ,like Syed Ali Shah Geelani & Shanir Shah is not acceptable ,and human rights groups all around India & the world must raise voice.(raja habib jalib Chairman jammu & kashmir human rights council int wing)
