India has crossed all limits of cruelty in IHK: Gilani
Srinagar, March 08, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has said that India and its puppet authorities have crossed all limits of cruelty in the territory by resorting to killings, frequent arrests, use of pepper gas and ransacking of residential houses. Syed Ali Gilani, who is under house arrest in Srinagar after his arrival from New Delhi on Thursday, in a media interview via phone said that arrests, curfews and restrictions could not weaken the Kashmiris’ resolve for their fight against Indian repression.
“The battle we are fighting is between truth and injustice. History is testimony to the fact that truth has always prevailed. I am sure victory will be ours,” the veteran leader said. He said that Kashmir was witnessing the fallout of the secret hanging of Muhammad Afzal Guru that a youth from Pulwama was murdered at Hyderabad in India and another youth was killed in cold blood in Baramulla town.
He said, “Everybody is aware of the treatment meted out to me in New Delhi. I was put under house arrest for 19 days. Such were the restrictions on me that policemen stayed inside my room for 32 hours.”
Syed Ali Gilani said that Indian troops and police personnel were not only on the killing spree in occupied Kashmir but also arresting minors and even ransacking the public property. He said that the blood of martyrs would not be allowed to go waste.
Meanwhile, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat spokesman, Dr Ghulam Muhammad Ganai, in a media interview said that the police had arrested some youth and an aged man Muhammad Yasin Malik for raising pro-freedom slogans on the arrival of Syed Ali Gilani at the Srinagar airport. He strongly condemned the arrests and the highhandedness of police.
