‘Surrender or resistance only options’: Ali Geelani

SRINAGAR: Apr 4 (INP)  Kashmiri Separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani, commenting on the Indian PM's speech asking the youth to choose between terrorism and tourism, said Kashmir was not to be compared with Gujarat or Uttar Pradesh, and that there were only two options before Kashmiris: surrender or resist till victorious

Another Hurriyat leader, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, issued a statement that said Kashmiris were not against tourism nor supporters of terrorism. He said Kashmiris were not against development and progress but wanted a dignified resolution of the long-pending Kashmir dispute.

Former IHK Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah asserted that the state needed a political solution more than it did developmental works.
