Srinagar: Criticising Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh`s statement about the situation in Kashmir
being under control, Hardline Hurriyat Conference leader Syed
Ali Shah Geelani on Thursday said the present lull in violence in
the Valley was temporary.

"Indian troops and police killed around 150 youth and
arrested thousands in 2010 and ensured the peace of the
graveyard here but it does not mean everything is okay,"
Geelani said in a statement.
He said the world and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
should not be "happy" about this temporary phase of lull in
Kashmir.

The Prime Minister had yesterday said the situation in
Jammu and Kashmir was under control "after some turbulence".

Reacting to the Prime Minister`s statement that the
recent demonstrations in Egypt against autocracy cannot be
replicated in democratic India, Geelani claimed that in Jammu
and Kashmir, an "Egypt like situation" had been in place in
2008, 2009 and 2010.
"People, by coming on the roads, have done a referendum
that they are not satisfied with India," he said.

"The people of Kashmir will bring such a revolution that
the revolutions of Egypt and other countries will look pale,"
he said.
