Hurriyat Conference(G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani Sunday said Jammu and Kashmir will provide “financial assistance” to people of India once it is “free from Indian occupation.”
“Soon after freedom from Indian occupation, we will feel pleasure to facilitate financial assistance to Indian people on humanitarian grounds,” Geelani said in a statement, while citing the “strong economy of state.”
Geelani also thanked the people for observing complete shutdown against the visit of India’s Home Minister and NIA raids .
He claimed that the “overwhelming support of people for right to self-determination has frustrated New Delhi.”
Commenting on Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s meeting with Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Geelani said that it was “meaningless to talk developmental projects while people are being mercilessly killed, maimed, blinded and women molested and properties vandalized.”
“There is no guarantee of life and dignity here and every soul is at stake,” he said.
Geelani said Indian authorities had “exploited our resources and state authorities bargained these power projects for their mean interests.”
“They can’t fool pro-freedom people,” said Geelani while referring to the “deceit of Indian authorities.”
“On one hand they are parroting the so-called development and on the other hand they are following their sinister designs of changing and altering the Muslim majority character of the state by planning to do away with Article 370 and Article 35A,” he said.
Geelani urged people not to get swayed away by “hollow slogans of state authorities and follow the mission of freedom with steadfastness, persistence and commitment.”
