Syed Ali Shah Geelani expressed sorrow over the killings of army jawans in Uri militant attack.

New Delhi: The chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Monday expressed sorrow over the killings of army jawans in Uri militant attack.

He said, “the loss of human lives is a “serious concern for every noble soul and there is no other option than to honour and safeguard precious lives.”

Commenting on the attack, Geelani said, “We as human beings feel pain and with sincere heart believe to­ promote universal brotherhood. We never derive pleasure from human sufferings, and the forces personnel that lost their lives were humans.”

He also blamed the politicians for creating a war-like situation in the state.

The Hurriyat chairman media for its biased reporting and said they are adding fuel to the already- volatile situation.

“In a bid to gain favors of their masters, the local stooges scolded and blamed Pakistan without assigning any logic. The reaction is natural but we need to maintain sense and balance while giving vent to our emotions,” Geelani said, asking all these politicians to “follow set of scales of mind and be realistic in such volatile situations.”

Commenting on the killings, Geelani said both people who lost their lives in the recent uprising and in Uri attack belong to human fraternity.

“Both, people who lost their lives in recent uprising and in Uri episode, belong to human fraternity but it is highly deplorable that people in power corridors and media opted only to admonish neighbouring country and their tears were specified only for those killed in Uri.”
