    Geelani Calls For Anti-Israeli Protests


    SRINAGAR:  Veteran Kashmiri leader, Syed Ali Geelani has appealed for peaceful protests on Friday (International Al-Quds Day) against Israeli aggression on hapless people of Palestine.

    Geelani, who is also a senior leader of Hurriyat Conference said that after observing the grave situation in Gaza, it looks as if the imperialistic powers of the world from Tel Aviv to Washington, London, Paris and New Delhi have unanimously signed a secret agreement in which the bloodshed of Muslims have been termed legal.

    Meanwhile a Hurriyat (G) spokesman criticized New Delhi government that by not adopting a clear stand on the bloodshed in Palestine. "They have actually proven to be the best friends of Israel and in this way their claim of being a big democracy is losing the ground", he said.

    While criticizing the inaction of the OIC (organization of Muslim countries), Hurriyat spokesman said that this organization has become lifeless institution which is still in deep slumber and the present situation of Gaza has also failed to activate it.

    "We are not seeing any active role of this institution beyond holding meeting sessions and passing resolutions and taking cue from this situation, Israel is proving more and more aggressive on every passing day".

    Spokesman said that the <a href="http://www.kashmirobserver.net/">anti-Muslim policies</a> of the powerful countries of the world have alienated the Muslim youth and if they react in a situation when they are pushed to the wall, the whole world raises hue and cry that the extremism and fundamentalism is increasing among the Muslims.

    Spokesman further said that whatever is happening in Palestine, if it will happen with the people living in London, Paris or Washington, then they too will become suicide bombers.

    Spokesman claimed that the organizations like Al-Qaida, Taliban and Boko Haram have came into being as a result of state terrorism of Israel, India, America and other countries and due to this state terrorism the world peace has got disturbed. "No person is extremist by birth but the situation makes him so", he said adding that if the countries like Israel, India and the US stop suppressing and oppressing the weak populations of the world and will accept their birth rights, the whole world would get converted into a virtual paradise.

    Strongly condemning the use of excessive force by the state government over the peaceful protest demonstrations on Gaza, Hurriyat spokesman alleged that the Indian army and CRPF are provoking the protesting people and then are killing them in target firing.

    The use of pellet fire is proving more fatal for the people because it can severely impact the eye sight and many youth have become disabled for life.

    Hurriyat spokesman said that the army and paramilitary forces are free to kill anybody and they fully know that the black law like AFSPA is providing them the license to kill anyone, anywhere and in any situation.
