Islamabad: Chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gillani while strongly condemning the arbitrary and coercive raids conducted by Indian National Agency on the residences and offices of Hurriyet leaders and activists termed it to drag movement leadership in fabricated cases, Kashmir media Service reported.
Syed Ali Gillani said that despite Indian state terrorism, the people of Kashmir would continue their struggle for freedom against Indian occupation and would never give up resistance or change their stance, adding that raids were meant to drag and implicate Hurriyet leadership into fabricated cases.
He said that during daylong raids at the residences of Hurriyet and THK leaders, the NIA team found nothing except their mobile phones, laptop and documents pertaining to personal properties. “NIA sleuths after questioning found nothing and it is rather strange that instead of making things public, maintained a mysterious silence, and in turn Indian media without any reason and proof created unproportional and unnecessary hype. It is a well-thought-out plan to defame the freedom movement and resistance leadership,” he said.
The APHC Chairman said that Indian authorities were scared of the commitment of resistance leaders and people with the freedom movement and their main aim was to discredit and defame the Hurriyet leadership. He, however, added that “they failed and were defeated”.
Syed Ali Gillani while commenting over Indian Home Minister, Rajnath Singh’s recent statement said that the Kashmiri people were not scared of these intimidations and they would continue to pursue their mission with dedication until Kashmir dispute was resolved as per their aspirations of the people of the state. He stressed for settling the Kashmir dispute by giving the Kashmiris their right to self-determination as was promised in the UN resolutions.
Meanwhile spokesperson of High Court Bar Association of occupied Kashmir in a statement has strongly denounced the NIA raids, terming these as illegal and immoral. He said that the raids were conducted to only terrorize, intimidate, harass and humiliate the people of Kashmir and suppress their voice for freedom.
