Srinagar, June 3 (GNS): The joint resistance leadership Saturday while strongly condemning the raids by NIA said such raids won’t deter them from ‘pursuing the mission for freedom’.
Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, Saturday in a joint statement said that “Indian government is frustrated to the extent that they frame and arrest the pro-freedom leaders and activists on the pre-planned psychological crackdown, so that they surrender and stop voicing the sentiments of their nation, thereby covering and shielding their atrocities and barbarism against common and unarmed people”.
“All these state sponsored tactics won’t deter us from pursuing our mission, nor these coercions, suppressive and aggressive measures will make us to surrender,” said the leadership. They alleged that Indian agencies under well thought out plan are desperate to malign and defame our sacred movement and warned India “that these inhuman, immoral and undemocratic tactics will not deter the pro-freedom people from advocating their just cause”.
They said: “The current raids being conducted by Indian NIA and the hype and sensationalism around it just goes on to show the desperate attempt by government of India to vilify and discredit the resistance leadership and in turn discredit the people’s freedom movement”.
Reacting sharply over raids conducted by National Investigation Agency (NIA), the leaders said that they have been given this task just to drag and involve leadership into these fabricated cases, thereby pressurizing the leadership. The leaders accused Indian authorities of disturbing trade and business community and said “that they feel very desperate to cripple our economy and to see us with a begging bowl in our hand”. (GNS)
