The trio of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik Sunday urged all the factions to remain united and follow cherished goal with spirit of persistence.
“Freedom movement is in its crucial stage,” said the joint leadership and added that “we need to be careful as our enemy can derive advantage from prevailing crises.”
Commenting over recent controversies where HM’s local commander Zakir Moosa isued threat to Hurriyat laeders, leadership said that in nineties the situation was more awful and complex. “We paid a great lot in terms of precious lives and kind. We were engaged in pity and non-serious matters and as such instead of following logic we were swayed by our emotions. Disunity and differences proved disastrous in past,” they said and added “enemy forces succeeded at various stages to sabotage our mission.”
“We stand by our earlier statement and are following the freedom struggle and facing shrewd enemy,” read the statement.
While refereeing to India, the leaders said, “authorities choked our voice and now is the time to remain cautious.”
“On one hand, they are hatching conspiracies and on the other are employing all their repressive measures and military might to sabotage movement, however, all political and militant factions have decided to face all these and remain united. We won’t allow them to create rifts among resistance camp or divide leadership and nation,” they said.
“We succeeded to wave off the so-called terminology of hardliners and moderate, thus unified nation on one point program of freedom from forced occupation,” read the statement.
While referring to India, the leadership said that our unity & united approach is a mile stone and it is an achievement and thus they stand frustrated.
“Characters of nation are examined in catastrophe and, the biggest power we got & carried forward from 2016 agitation was our unity and poll boycott in recent parliamentary elections. All these steps depicted the best precedence of our unity. Unity among our folds is supreme and we need to uphold this spirit and carry forward this passion,” they said and urged to remain to remain cautious.
“Political and militant leadership are fully aware about all odds, we won’t succumb to any pressure, however history of unparalleled sacrifices has enabled us to stand against such grim situations,” they said and urged youth to learn much more from senior leadership. “We all need to go hand in hand and work together to achieve our mission.”
“It is time to rethink and make out strategies and work them out unanimously that how to get freedom from the forcible clutches and occupation of India,” said leadership.
Pertinently a day after Zakir issued threat, HM distanced itself from his statement terming it as his personal. However Zakir hit back by dissociating himself from HM and stood by his statement.
