SRINAGAR: Former Chairman of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday rejected Indian propaganda over his decision to quit the APHC and said that commitment to the freedom struggle runs through his blood, ARY NEWS reported.
In a message posted on his Twitter account, the ailing Kashmiri leader, who is currently imprisoned, said that there was no force on earth that can keep him away from protecting the cause of the thousands of the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the noble cause of the freedom.
“It is in response to the fake propaganda of Indian Media and conscious less elite, let me clarify that my separation from APHC doesn’t mean my separation from the sacred movement of right to self-determination.”
