Kashmir Separatist Leader urges Resistance to India’s Kashmir Move

Syed Ali Shah Geelani, a prominent separatist leader in Indian-administered Kashmir, has called on residents of the region to peacefully resist Indian rule in the disputed territory.

“It is our heartfelt appeal to the people of Jammu and Kashmir that we must continue to resist at this critical juncture … We all can, and must, act according to our abilities; through action or word. People should organise peaceful protests and demonstrations in their areas of residence,” the 89-year-old leader said in a statement.

Geelani, who has been detained at his home since India’s decision to revoke Kashmir’s special status, also urged Pakistan to act decisively.

The statement was his first since India’s move.
