GEELANI FOMENTING UNREST: JETHMALANI
New Delhi, Sept 2: Senior jurist and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Ram Jethmalani Thursday demanded the immediate arrest of Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani, who he alleged is on Pakistan's payroll and responsible for the current unrest in Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing mediapersons, Jethmalani said the young people indulging in violence against the police in the state are instigated by persons 'in the pay of Pakistan, of whom Geelani is the leader'.
“I will apologise to him if he swears by the Holy Quran that he has not been on the payroll of Pakistan at all relevant times,” the BJP's newly elected Rajya Sabha member declared.
The jurist said if Geelani believes that pelting stones at the police is an honourable and efficacious activity, he should display courage to take up stones and lead the gangs of youthful stone pelters.
However, he said Geelani knows well that some stray bullet in the crowds could cause injury or even death. 'He is an intentional abettor of murder. The state and central government must pick up courage and arrest Geelani and incarcerate him in some jail far away from Srinagar,' Jethmalani forcefully demanded.
