National Conference General Secretary Dr Sheikh Mustafa Kamal on Tuesday appealed to Hurriyat Conference leader Sayeed Ali Shah Geelani to “use his influence in cooling tempers and correcting the waywardness of youth” in the Valley, saying that it is “jeopardizing their future”.
Taking strong exception to Geelani’s statement holding mainstream politicians responsible for the current unrest, death and destruction, Kamal in a loaded statement asked the Hurriyat leader to stop “wasting time on egoism before it is too late and everything goes up in smoke”. He also asked Geelani “to recollect his role in J&K politics since 1972 especially when his party, the Jamat-i-Islami was made to win five seats unopposed including his own from Sopore to the Legislative Assembly” and then again in 1977 and 1987.
Kamal advised him to “not be among those who desire indecencies should spread among the believers as they will have a painful chastisement in the world and hereafter – Al Quram. For Allah is with those who restrain themselves and those who do good”. He also asked Geelani to “be good to others as Allah has been good to thee; and seek not to make mischief in the Earth; verily Allah loves not those who make mischief”.
