{EOP}Exclusive Interview: Syed Ali Geelani


KARACHI – In the buildup to India’s ‘Republic’ Day, observed in Occupied Kashmir as a black day, Chairman of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Shah Geelani has asked Pakistan for continued support of the Kashmiri freedom struggle, while showing concern at the ongoing political violence in Karachi.

Speaking to the Karachi based ‘Fortress Magazine’, Geelani expressed fears that the recent ethnic violence in Karachi is an attempt to strike at the foundation on which Pakistan was built. While calling for a show of unity amongst their ranks, Geelani appealed to the Pakistan government to stabilize the situation as a strong and stable Pakistan can better fight the case for Kashmir’s freedom from Indian rule.
‘Allah knows what our future would be. But Pakistan which was formed on ideological boundaries, its stability is the biggest concern. Freedom movement of Kashmir is suffering due to the instability in Pakistan imposed on it through the Balochistan issue, Drone and terror attacks on its soil.’ He added.
Geelani called for January 26th to be marked as a black day to remind the world of India’s brutal occupation of Kashmir. January 26th is celebrated as ‘Republic’ day all over India.
“We will observe peaceful processions on 26th January with Black Flags with “GO INDIA GO” slogans. Kashmiris have suffered brutal and unimaginable horrors and atrocities for the past 63 years. It is time for the world and specially the Muslim nations to respond to this oppression. We believe Pakistan will not only reply on diplomatic statements, but infact take steps to strongly support our legitimate struggle”, added Geelani.
He also requested that his message be passed on to the masses and officials in Pakistan that Kashmiris need a strong Pakistan which will enable them to achieve Freedom.
