I MADE GEELANI A HERO: OMAR
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, May 6: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Friday justified his decision to allow Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani to offer funeral prayers for slain Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden saying, “I'm done making him a hero on my time”.
Sharing his thoughts on the micro-blogging site twitter, the Chief Minister said, “While I appreciate some people will have issues with my decision to allow SASG to roam freely today, I'm done making him a hero on my time”.
In another tweet, he wrote, “So please don't waste your energy on my TL. In hindsight it was the correct decision & I have no issues with it what so ever”.
The Chief Minister also criticized some of his `followers’ raising question over the government `inaction’, saying, “And those of you waxing eloquent about SASG & his prayers are strangely silent about the same thing when its done in Calcutta”.
“I get all the inputs & objective advise & take a decision knowing that the fallout, if there is one, is mine to deal with”, he responds to one of the tweet.
“If I'd kept him at home he'd have claimed that lakhs were coming but we didn't allow them. End up with less than a thousand”.
Earlier in the day, the Chief Minister had claimed that Geelani was losing the feel of the people's pulse in Kashmir by calling the funeral prayers of Bin Laden.
"One gets the feeling that he's (Geelani) losing his touch on the pulse of the people -first Panchayat elections and now the funeral prayers," Omar said in response to a tweet on a micro-blogging site.
The Hurriyat leader had called for funeral prayers in absentia for the world's most wanted man after Friday congregational prayers.
