“Our young generation is determined to get out of the unholy yolk of slavery at any cost and when young blood is so enthusiastic to achieve their goal, no power on earth can force them to subjugation,” said chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani in a telephonic address to the mourners of Dr Shams-ul-Haq at Soghan, Shopian on Wednesday.
A statement issued to GNS said that Geelani “reiterated his pledge to take the movement to its logical end and to never allow anybody to barter the precious blood of martyrs”.
“We need to be aware of this and we are duty-bound to safeguard their sacrifices and should desist from such activities which prove detrimental for our movement,” he said.
He said that “deceitful” slogans of development, prosperity or material gains can never be a substitute for freedom and that the pro-India politicians have been “sucking every drop of our blood to satisfy their masters in Delhi”.
“The election drama and the multi-faced political stooges pose as our saviours to fetch them votes in the name of roads, electricity and water, but in reality, they are the people who strengthen the unholy bond of slavery so nation as a whole should desist from any support to them,” he said.
Hurriyat (G) chairman said, “our movement has become so precious that no perk and privilege can compel us for any compromise”.
Stressing upon people in general and youth in particular, Geelani said: “We need to strengthen our faith and protect our civil, social, religious and human liberties, avoid misdeeds and nourish the Islamic culture in our homes and society without indulging in sectarian hatred and social evils.”
