Srinagar, Aug 18 : Senior APHC leaders Gh Nabi Sumji, Zamrooda Habib & Gh Ahmad Gulzar in a joint statement while terming Syed Ali Geelani as a symbol and icon of freedom movement, prayed for his speedy recovery. These leaders in their statement hailed Geelani for his immaculate and unblemished character and generous services rendered for ongoing freedom movement, said that those quarters who for their mean and selfish politics are known to everyone in state should know that they are puffing against the wind and stand exposed.
Appealing people to pray for his well-being, the leaders said that abrogation or tinkering in article 35A is unacceptable for people and while ridiculing the rhetoric and parroting of pro-Indian parties, the leadership termed their hue and cry as mere drama and a political gimmick.
The trio in their statement said all these parties were instrumental and did a lot of injustice with these provisions while allowing amendments and abrogation during their tenure.
Cautioning people about the deceit being played by these politicians and parties, the leadership said that they are portraying themselves as well-wishers of movement and saviors of nation.
The freedom movement and Indian constitutions are quite different and poles apart, said they and added that people in state have presented unparalleled sacrifices for ongoing freedom movement.
Commenting over the character assassination campaign of NIA sleuths against leadership, the leadership said that it proved a failure and futile exercise and lost its credibility by floating baseless propaganda.
Referring to ploy and deceit played by Delhi and its stooges, leadership said that they have deployed NIA sleuths and resistance leaders are being harassed and fictitious cases filed against them. It is a well thought out plan and ploy to defame movement and stop leadership from raising voice of suppressed people. (KNS)
