ISLAMABAD: The forum patronized by the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, has said that the puppet Chief Minister, Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, has surrendered before the Indian rulers on every issue.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the spokesman for the forum, Ayaz Akbar, in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “Mufti Sayeed has at last surrendered before the Indian rulers on every issue may it be the removal of AFSPA, return back of power projects and making of separate townships for Kashmiri Pandits and he gave a statement in the Ahmadabad city of Gujarat that he will act against Syed Ali Gilani.”
He said that the house arrest of Syed Ali Gilani was against all the democratic and moral values and was an act of state terrorism and hooliganism.
“This is the accepted defeat of Mufti Sayeed and by arresting Gilani Sahab he has actually proven that no pro-India politician including him can face the veteran leader on political levels and they find no option other than to arrest him,” he added.
The spokesman maintained that Mufti Sayeed’s slogan of “battle of Ideas” had practically come to a halt and he had miserably failed in facing Syed Ali Gilani on political turf. “Heavy police deployment surrounded the residence of Syed Ali Gilani at Hyderpora on Monday night and blocked the main entrance gate with the police vehicle. A senior police officer informed the office staff that they have got the orders to imprison Syed Ali Gilani in his own house. The police as usual have not produced any kind of court or government order for this arrest and nor they told that under which act and which section they have arrested him,” he said.
Strongly condemning the authorities’ action, Ayaz Akbar said that after the massive public rally in Tral on last Friday, strange uneasiness was felt by the rulers from Delhi to Srinagar and Indian home ministry and its media mafia were spending sleepless nights.
He said that from the Indian Home Minister, Rajnath Singh, to the so-called Minister of State, Jitender Singh, everybody was pressurizing Mufti Sayed for arresting Syed Ali Gilani.
