Mr Geelani also expressed his serious concern over the liquor related statement by Finance Minster Abdul Rahim Rather, Chairmam of the Huriyat conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Wednesday accused government of making efforts to make liquor easily available so that youth of the valley could be encouraged for immoral activities thus taken away from what he said the goal of Azadi (Freddom).
In a statement to KNS on Wednesday, Huriyat spokesman said that Minster’s statement was condemnable and stressed that there should be a blanket ban on the use of liquor in valley. Indian government has during last six decades failed to fade away the spirit of freedom from our hearts despite it having resorted to every kind of oppression and tactic.’’ Spokesman of the amalgam said in his statement, adding that when India could not suppress the movement in last 22 years by using military power and the offers of roads, employment and flyovers, it has after 2008 and 2010 began revisiting the whole strategy to deal with Kashmir movement. Huriyat spokesman claimed that these revisited strategies included the long term and short term.’’ Increasing the influence and availability of liquor is one of the long term strategies.’’ Claimed the Huriyat spokesman.
He said that the government was now funding the religious institutes and some clerics to create a divide in the Muslim dominated valley. However the spokesman warned that such moves could lead to sectarian divide and ultimately could end up in bloodshed.
