Srinagar: All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday termed the gag of age old religo-political organization Jamaat-e-Islami as unethical, undemocratic and a blot on Indian democracy.
Condemning the governments move, Geelani said that the people in general and pro-freedom camp in particular need to put a collective narrative against the government banning Jamaat-e-Islami.
“If we turn a blind eye to the onslaught on our basic and fundamental rights, the day will not be too far when we all will be kicked out of our residences to accommodate their majority, same way the Israeli Zionist have done in Palestine,” Geelani said in a statement.
He said that every political or religious party has their own narrative of the political instability and decade old dispute of Jammu and Kashmir and they serve their ideologies within the contours of the law, ading that, Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir is propagating their manifesto accordingly as all others do.
“Such coercive and arbitrary measures have been tried earlier also, when in 1975, India was engulfed in the black clouds of emergency and the so-called tallest politician of Jammu Kashmir imported that emergency in the state, banning Jamaat-e-Islami and arresting thousands of its leaders and workers, but time has proved it beyond the doubt that those on the path of justice and righteousness, can never be cowed down by a such repressive measures,” he said.
Hurriyat chairman said that Delhi rulers have “waged war” against the people of Jammu and Kashmir. Jamaat workers and its office bearers are arrested, their property seized, their vehicles snatched away and even their residences are being sealed, making their families homeless in their own homeland.
“India has been following the footsteps of its mentor and partner in crime Israel as both play historical victimhood at the hands of Muslims and both are cunning and cruel to their core. India is the biggest purchaser of Israeli arms and ammunition, being used in Kashmir and Pakistan. Indian government has already put their point-man on the governing spot to take the mission along and now they have started to achieve their targets one by one, the Chairman said.
Pro-freedom leader said that it is “unfortunate and pathetic that our sold out souls of bureaucracy, without applying their own mind and logic, blindly follow the dictates of their masters to prove themselves more loyal than the king. They quickly swing into action to throttle every voice of dissent, negating the ethics and moral contours of the “democracy” they have taken oath to honor.”
