Srinagar, August 25, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the forum patronized by the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, has strongly condemned the recent statement of the spokesman of pro-India Peoples Democratic Party, Mehboob Beig. Mehboob Beig had tried to justify the illegal house detention of Syed Ali Gilani and the banning of his party convention on Sunday. He had stated in an interview that Syed Ali Gilani doesn’t have a good track record and wherever he goes, it is followed by stone-pelting.
The forum spokesman in a statement said that the detention of Syed Ali Gilani and banning of his political activities was the worst kind of state terrorism and in a wish to become more loyal than the king, Beig tried to put veil over the hooliganism of the puppet authorities.
“The continued detention of Syed Ali Gilani is because he is representing the wishes and aspirations of the Kashmiri people and wherever he goes, thousands of people assemble there to demand separation from India. This situation not only proves humiliating for India on international level but also exposes the lies of the local pro-India politicians,” he said.
The spokesman asked Mehboob Beig to issue statements within his limits and stop interfering in the issues much bigger than his status. He added that the politicians who switch over from one party to another did not have a position to comment over big issues.
