Hurriyat Chairman Syed Ali Geelani strongly in his presidential address condemned the police restrictions on the Hurriyat Conference meeting and said that the restrictions over the political activities of the pro-freedom people has been further tightened and now the routine Hurriyat meetings are also being not allowed. It is practically a martial law in the state which the Mufti Sayeed and BJP coalition government has adopted. While referring to the “battle of Ideas” slogan of the Mufti Sayeed, Geelani Sahab said that India and its agents can’t face us on the political turf. They are taking the help of the army and police to suppress our peaceful and genuine voices and this policy is badly affecting the situations in the state. It will further increase the political uncertainty and instability and alienation among the new generation of Kashmir. Geelani Sahab cautioned the government that if the restrictions on the peaceful political activities of the pro-freedom people continued, the Hurriyat Conference will not remain silent over this and it will take steps to highlight the issue. Chairman Hurriyat said that the policy makers of India under a well thought plan are working to divert the attention of Kashmiri people from their freedom struggle and to project it as communal clashes. Sometimes they make the issue of cow slaughtering, sometimes they allow Ahmadies to hold conferences here and sometimes they raise other issue so that the people will fight with each other which will overshadow the atrocities and human rights violations committed by the Indian forces in Kashmir. The pro-freedom leader said that the leadership and the nation have to act with extra maturity and farsightedness in this regard. Instead of fighting the war on the choice of the enemy and reactionary politics, we have to generate our own capabilities to counter the opponent. We have to formulate such a strategy which will help us to further highlight the oppression and cruelty of the Indian Imperialism and we have to divert the attention of the whole world towards the Kashmir issue. He said that we are demanding right to self determination for the entire population of Jammu & Kashmir whether they are Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs or any other community, they are all our brothers and the differences between the people of Kashmir will always benefit India not us. While commenting over the hot topic of article 35-A, Geelani Sahab said that the New Delhi is hell-bent upon harming the disputed nature and special status of the Jammu & Kashmir and for this purpose, they have formulated a plan for changing the demography of the state. The links to this plan is the issues of issuing state subjects to the West Pakistan Refugees, creation of Sainik Colonies and settling of non-state subjects in Jammu & Kashmir belonging to the different states of India. He however said that we will not allow this thing to happen in any way and at any cost and if any such attempt was made on the ground
