Srinagar, Sep 23: Hurriyat Conference (G) organized a daylong seminar at Hyderpora Srinagar, presided over by Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Geelani. The seminar was addressed by Mirwaiz Dr. Mohammad Umar Farooq, Mohammad Yasin Malik, Gh. Nabi Sumji, Advocate Zahid Ali, Aga Abid Hussain, Gh. Ali Gulzar and Ameer-e-Hamza. The seminar began with the recitation of verses from Holy Quraan by Molvi Bashir Irfani whereas Gh. Ahmad Gulzar managed the dice.
In his presidential address, Syed Ali Geelani while paying rich tributes to the martyrs of Karbala said that by his martyrdom Imam Hussain (RA) taught the weak and suppressed people to remain steadfast against the tyranny and barbarism and stand by righteousness. True rulers behave as the real servants of their followers whereas despotism breeds dishonest and cruel rulers. History of Karbala glorifies the truth and teaches us a lesson to stand by reason and justice in the light of Quran and Sunnah, said Geelani.
Geelani said that the people of Kashmir demand their legitimate right as promised and accepted by the world community. For raising their just demand, they get killed, maimed, vandalizing their belongings, prolonged incarceration on one pretext or the other and degradation as third degree citizens.
Giving details of the undue, interferences in religious matters of Muslims the Hurriyat leader castigated the Indian authorities, for proposing triple Talaq as a punishable offence, allowing a Muslim women to perform Hajj without her “Moharam” and prohibition of carrying sacrificial animals from one place to another.
Terming these arbitrary commands as a ploy to disintegrate the Muslims on the basis of minor ideological differences. Making a fervent appeal to the Muslims of the state to remain united irrespective of such divisive tactics of India.
Coming to the latest Indian rejection of dialogue with Pakistan, Geelani said unless India accepts Kashmir as a dispute, no dialogue process is likely to succeed.
India and Pakistan shared more than 150 rounds of bilateral talks without any results, so unless the disputed nature of the problem is not addressed, peace and prosperity of the whole South Asia region shall continue remain as hostage to it. (KNS)
