House arrest taking toll on Geelaniís health: Hurriyat (G)
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 7: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Friday claimed that the continued house arrest of its chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani had badly hit his health.
Geelani, who continues to be under house arrest since September 5, was not again allowed to offer his Friday prayers today.
ďAlthough Geelani remained mostly under house arrest since August 2010, he was kept continuously under house arrest since September 5. Police did not lift siege from his house even for a single day since then. He was not allowed to offer any Friday prayer during the holy month of Ramadan. Police has changed his residential house into a virtual jail. Now this continued house arrest has told upon his health and he is becoming weaker day by day,Ē said a Hurriyat (G) spokesman in a statement.
He termed Geelaniís house arrest as undemocratic, unjustified and illegal.
Claiming that New Delhi and state government were feeling sacred of Geelani, the Hurriyat spokesman said let them set him free and allow him to carry out his political activities they would see a different scene on streets of Kashmir.
The spokesman appealed to the functionaries Amnesty International and Asia Watch to take serious note of Geelaniís house arrest and use their influence for his immediate release.
