GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 25: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Wednesday said that he would address a public rally at Hazratabal on Friday, as part of the Conglomerate’s campaign to seek release of the detainees lodged in various jails of the State.
“The rally would be held in peaceful manner and thousands of people are expected to participate in it,” a spokesman of Hurriyat (G) said in a statement here.
Geelani has urged the Amnesty International, Asia Watch and International Red Cross to take strong note of the plight of detainees and pressurize New Delhi to release them immediately.
“We will not remain silent on this serious issue .The Government of India has created graveyard like silence in Kashmir with the assistance of police and Army. But this does not mean that everything is right in Kashmir,” he said.
Geelani said 1465 persons including 50 pro-freedom leaders in various jails “for demanding freedom and protecting honour of the nation.”
“The families of the detainees are also suffering due to imprisonment of their beloved ones. Most of the detainees have been kept in jails in Jammu and communal officers have deployed there. These officers have turned the jails brutal than Abu Gharib and Guantanamo Bay,” he said.
