‘Agencies harass, intimidate my family to pressurise me’

SRINAGAR, Mar 11: Syed Ali Shah Geelani, chairmam Hurriyat Conference (G), has strongly condemned the summoning of his younger son Dr Syed Naseem Geelani by NIA and said that Indian rulers and its agencies have stooped to the lowest level of moral and ethical bankruptcy, which no sane person can even think of.
In a statement he said, "We have explained our point of view in closed doors as well as in open public."
Geelani added that hatred and witch-hunt against Kashmiris is at its peak outside valley and most of the Kashmiris have been threatened, tortured and dragged out of their residences, educational institutions and hostels, forcing many of them to return home leaving their studies and business.
"In such a charged atmosphere common Kashmiri feels unsafe and relatives of pro-freedom people will surely be targeted and in such a disturbing atmosphere we cannot afford to risk the life of anybody travelling out of valley," he said.
Hurriyat (G) chairman said if questioning anybody including his son is must they can do so in the valley.
The senior separatist leader said Delhi rulers and its agencies harass and intimidate his family just to pressurize him, but these acts will yield nothing for them. He said in 2017 also, when ghost of NIA threatened every freedom loving person, particularly their families including common and businessman," we voluntarily offered ourselves to be questioned by the investigating agency, but the authorities did not dare to face us."
He said if Delhi rulers treat them as law breakers and want to clarify their doubts, he once again offer himself for such questioning. "My past more than 50 years political career stands testimony to the fact that all the agencies, overt or covert, are well aware of my political stand," Hurriyat (G) chairman said.
He stated that he has been facing atrocities, curbs, jails, interrogation by the government for the last seven decades. "How can they even think of any compromise by me using such mean and childish actions of threatening and humiliating my children," Geelani said.
He added that he has consciously and willfully adopted this “torturous and thorny path of perusing the movement for the basic and fundamental rights of nation”, and “no power on earth can deter him from this holy mission”.
Hurriyat (G) chairman said such maneuvering, much hyped-drama and sensational media narratives may have electoral dividends for the ruling class, but can never lease their stay for too long.
