Geelani said that our brave hearts are laying their life for a sacred cause and their sacrifices won’t go waste.

Extending condolences with bereaved families, Syed Ali Geelani said that a true Muslim reposes his faith only in Almighty Allah and added that we are dutybound to follow and carry mission of martyrs. It will be a best tribute if we stayaway from bargaining against material gains and personal interests, said Geelani. 
Ridiculing those in power corridores, Geelani said that they are least interested in common people and have bartered for perks and enjoying luxuries and power. Our youngsters are facing death and destruction, said he and added that unending curbs on political activities and continuous detention of resistance leadership has created political uncertainty in state and as such our youth are quite disheartened with prevailing situation as peaceful activities are denied,”. Geelani while referring to awful situation in detention centers and police lockups, said that “people particularly youth are subjected to third degree torture by police authorities.”, said Geelani in his telephonic address and added that our properties are vandalized and razed to ground.
Referring to ploy and deceit played by Delhi and its stooges, Geelani said that they have deployed NIA sleuths and resistance leaders are being harassed and fictitious cases filed against them. It is a well thought out plan and ploy to defame movement and harass leadership.
They are targeting our economy, said Geelani and blamed “stubborn attitude” of New Delhi for “continuous bloodshed in Kashmir”. Geelani said that “since last several decades people in state are facing war like situations”
Geelani said that our movement is indigenous and while referring to historical background said that Kashmir was never a part of India,
instead a disputed territory and people have yet to decide their political destiny I assure you, said Geelani while addressing mourners and added that we will do away with this slavery and emerge as a victorious nation.
