altJehlum Post News| Srinagar| Expressing his deep sorrow and dismay over the killing of a polling officer in Shopian, chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Geelani expressed his sympathy with the bereaved family and condoled the demise. He said that the election in Jammu and Kashmir are actually a practical military operation and government employees are forcibly included into this military operation which doesn’t have any moral or legal justifications and it is also a grave human rights violation. In Friday’s press release, Geelani Sahib said that as there are a huge presence of Indian forces in the shape of 7.5 lakh army, paramilitary forces and police, so government should select its polling staff among these police and other forces and the civil employees should not be dragged into this military exercise. He said that the election drama in Jammu and Kashmir is held in war like situation and the government employees are forcibly involved in this game, which is excess with them and it doesn’t have any justification. The government employees are held hostage which is totally against the international laws. While expressing his sympathy with bereaved family of polling officer Zia-Ul-Haq, Geelani Sahib also advised the government employees that they should resist their forced selection or deployment and if the government will further force them, they can fight it out in the judiciary also.
