Srinagar, Mar 9: Hurriyat Conference (G) Tuesday urged its chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, to accept the Pakistan’ invite and visit Islamabad.
Geelani was recently invited by the Pakistan government to visit the country.
The Hurriyat Majlis-e-Shoora (advisory council), at its meeting chaired by the party General Secretary, Feroz Ahmad Khan, here today, unanimously resolved that its chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani should accept the invite and visit Pakistan along with a high level amalgam delegation to apprise both its government and people about the Hurriyat stand on the Kashmir issue.
The meeting expressed serious concern over the continued detention of the pro-freedom leaders including Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Raja Meraj-ud-Din, Gen Musa, Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Shabir Ahmad Shah, Masarat Alam Bhat, Firdous Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Muhammad Yousuf Mir, Muhammad Rafiq Ganai, Muhammad Altaf Khan, Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem, Meraj-ud-Din Kalwal and Shakeel Ahmad Bhat.
