Srinagar, August 27 (Online): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has asked the Indian forces to read the writing on the wall and quit Kashmir.
Syed Ali Gilani, who is under house arrest for a very long time now, released his written message titled ‘Quit Jammu and Kashmir, an appeal to Indian soldiers, please go home’, in English, Hindi and Urdu languages,
“Even though your actions have killed one lakh people, disappeared 10,000 and orphaned more than 60,000 children to subdue us collectively and make us surrender our fundamental right of freedom, yet the emotion of love and reverence that martyrdom of commander Burhan Wani mobilized across and beyond Kashmir, should open your eyes,” the APHC Chairman wrote in the message.
“The more you strike us down, the more we shall rise with renewed determination and vigour. We are in the process of liberating our minds and the days of freedom are in sight,” he added.
Elaborating, Syed Ali Gilani stated, “This is the time for you to see the writing on the wall and think upon what you always intended to do and what it has presented you with always.” He wrote, “You thought your violence would kill our dreams for freedom. They have not. You thought our spirit would break (and) we would turn against each other. We will not. You have succeeded in murder, but not in the death of our dreams. Before more violence, before more sorrow, before more graves, we ask you to stop.”
“Ours is a rich and resilient culture. We are a proud people whose hospitality has defined our history. We welcome guests, invited or uninvited, not invaders. We understand your deception, your psychological warfare. You will be tired of killing us; some day you might be horrified at what you have done to humanity. We will never tire of struggling for our history, our future, our freedom. We will not forgive. We will not forget,” he stated in his message.
