Statements of Farooq, Soz, Mehbooba on Guru ‘Hippocratic’

Srinagar: Declaring the statements of Farooq Abdullah, Saif-ud-Din Soz and Mehbooba Mufti on Mohammad Afzal Guru as ‘Hippocratic’, which appeared after the Supreme Court’s decision to commute the death sentence of three convicts in Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination case, chairman, Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani said that these statements are the part of vote-bank politics.
According to a statement issued to KNS, he said that at the time of Afzal Guru’s hanging, Farooq Abdullah declared him a murderer and favoured his hanging, whereas Saif-ud-Din Soz maintained a criminal silence and when a bill was going to present in assembly with reference to Guru, Mehbooba Mufti with her party members backed out from assembly.
Geelani has said that we are not against the decision to commute the death sentence of the convicts in Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination case, but these incidents remind us the unjust hanging of Mohammad Afzal Guru and these incidents have cleared our confusion that Indian judiciary is also using duel standards and Kashmiris can’t hope for any justice from it.
He said that India treats Kashmir as its colony and its forces commit heinous crimes and massacres and the judiciary also fails to deliver the justice to the subjugated Kashmiris. He said that actually these sentences are the political decisions of the policy makers in Delhi, which are provided judicial cover by these courts.
Geelani alleged that after the arrest of Mohammad Afzal Guru, he was denied his legal right to defend himself in the lower court and no concrete evidences were put against him, except the evidences of police and intelligence personnel. He said that his capital punishment could have been converted into life imprisonment at the last stage, but the judiciary with political influence closed its eyes and hanged the innocent person. Expressing his surprise over the reactions of Farooq Abdullah, Saif-ud-Din Soz and Mehbooba Mufti, Geelani said that these pro-Indian politicians have made a u-turn in Afzal Guru’s case and are doing politics on the murder of this innocent person. He also said that people have not forgotten the statement, stand and discussions which were made on the martyrdom of Mohammad Afzal Guru.
Geelani said that the statement of Farooq Abdullah that ‘Afzal Guru had attacked the democracy and he have got the worth’, is still in the records, Saif-ud-Din Soz said that ‘law has finished its work’, while as Mehbooba Mufti and her party men at first made hue and cry but when an important bill regarding Afzal Guru was about to be presented in the assembly, they showed there real face and backed out. He further said that these pro-Indian and opportunist politicians does not have any definite character, they change it when needed. They do not care for innocent human lives; they only want to grab the power by hook or by crock.
While complaining about the behavior of the people towards these wicked and cunning politicians, Geelani said that the people often get trapped by their hollow promises and does not understand their wickedness. He said that the development works in the state are not any favour by National Conference, Congress, PDP or other pro-Indian parties to the people, but it is the potential of our vast natural resources and the huge taxes of common people of which a little bit is spent on these development projects and the major part of which goes into the corrupt pockets of these greedy politicians.
Pro-Freedom leader categorically said that by the grace of Almighty, we will defiantly get the freedom from the curl and wicked clutches of India, but the delay is caused by the disgusting and shameful character of local pro-Indian politicians. He said that our goal of freedom will remain a distinct dream until the people of Jammu and Kashmir will not understand the wicked politics of the politicians like Omer Abdullah, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and Saif-ud-Din Soz and will not show them the exit door.
