Hurriyat calls for strike on Saturday

The Hurriyat conference (G) today called for general strike on April 7 against the sentencing of Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai.Dr Fai, the head of Kashmir American centre, has been sentenced to two year imprisonment by an American court for “lobbying for Pakistan intelligence agency ISI.”
 A Hurriyat (G) statement said a meeting of the Majlis-e-Shora was held under the chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani wherein the decision on the strike was taken.
 “The Shora discussed the sentence pronounced against Dr Fai and decided to call for a strike. We appeal the transporters, traders, employees and everyone to observe complete strike on the day to make the call a success,” the statement said.
 The Hurriyat (G) called Dr Fai an “ambassador of Kashmir” who was “conspired against by India.”
 “He was representing the people of Kashmir, but India used its influence to make US authorities act against him,” it said, and admired Dr Fai’s role and courage. “He has working for the people of Kashmir and for doing so he has been living in self-exile for past over two decades. We salute his courage for he did not lose heart even after the sentence was pronounced against him. It is time to tell the world that he is not alone,” it stated.
