Geelani has neither nominated his son or any other successor: Hurriyat (G)
Srinagar: Chairman, Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani has neither nominated his son or any other as his successor and nor is it possible in future, a statement issued by Hurriyat (G) has said.
According to the statement issued to KNS, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat is an ideological and structured organization which doesn’t only reject the successor theory but it terms this type of nominations as an undemocratic and unprincipled acts.
While terming the news report which appeared in a Delhi base English daily regarding nomination of successor as baseless and mischievous acts, spokesman of Geelani said that the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat is going to take legal action against the newspaper and its reporter and for this, the consultation of many senior lawyers of Srinagar High Court and legal experts has been sought.
He said that neither Geelani has any concept or idea of any successor nor his son is the candidate or desirous for this. Tehreek-e-Hurriyat is an ideological organization, where every act is done with the proper consultation of its executive body and it does not follow any type of dictatorship system.
“Since Geelani son does not even have any basic membership in Tehreek-e-Hurriyat so there is no question of his nomination as successor.” According to the spokesman, the reporter of the news daily has not only falsely reported but he has proven that how little information he has about the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat.
Ghulam Nabi Sumji and Masrat Aalam Bhat are the leaders of Muslim Conference and Muslim League respectively and both of them are although respectable and great personalities on the forefront of this freedom struggle but they neither have any organizational relationship nor they held any membership with the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat.
The Hurriyat (G) spokesman has also strongly rejected the theory of news reporter that in 2010, Geelani had any confrontation with Sehraie and Masrat Aalam. He said that the organizations of both the leaders (Sehraie and Masrat) are the constituents of Hurriyat Conference and this forum has a set policy regarding the freedom struggle of Kashmir. According to the UN resolutions, this forum (Hurriyat Conference) favours a peaceful solution of Kashmir dispute and there is no division of thoughts within the forum.
“The news reporter, who had termed both the persons as hardcore, has actually provided this misleading information to the Indian agencies and have indirectly advised them (agencies) that they should be dealt with iron hands.” The spokesman said that Sehraie is a senior leader of freedom struggle of Kashmir and General Secretary of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat and the reporter who have said that Sehraie believes that the gun is the only solution of Kashmir dispute, is not only a mischievous act but it is an act to defame his identity.
He said that though gun also plays an important role in highlighting the Kashmir cause but the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, of which Sehraie is a backbone, favours a peaceful struggle to address this issue and it doesn’t indulge in any type of underground activities. “This organization has its own constitution and policies and there is no confusion in following these policies.”
The Hurriyat (G) spokesman in a press release said that the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat is going to take legal action against the false reporting and mischievous act of the above mentioned newspaper and its reporter and for this, a meeting was held with the senior lawyers and legal experts, in which final decision has been taken regarding the action.
Meanwhile, according to the Hurriyat (G) spokesman a detailed checkup of Geelani has been conducted in APOLO hospital New Delhi and doctors have advised many important medical investigations. The health condition of pro-freedom leader is improving and he is also taking some light food. The Hurriyat (G) spokesman said that Dr. Sameer Koul conducted his detailed checkup and on his advice some important medical investigations were also conducted who’s results are awaited.
Although doctors have expressed their satisfaction over the health of Geelani, but they advised some important precautions and said that there is no possibility of carelessness. Hurriyat (G) spokesman said that the people are showing their tremendous affection and attachment towards the health of Geelani and they are continuously enquiring about his health over phone and physical visit.
