Hurriyat (G) condemns Geelani’s house arrest
Srinagar, Sep 9: Hurriyat Conference (G) has expressed serious concern over the continued house arrest of its chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani, terming it highly condemnable.
“Due to his continued house arrest, Syed Ali Shah Geelani could not offer his Friday prayers today. Debarring a Muslim from offering Friday prayers is tantamount to interference in the religious affairs of people,” said the Hurriyat spokesman in a statement today.
The spokesman alleged that the police had changed Geelani’s residence into a virtual jail. “Omar Abdullah led government had proved the worst government in the state due to its maladministration. In this government the lawlessness in the state touched the peak,” he said.
The spokesman alleged that Tehreek-e-Hurriyat acting general secretary Muhammad Abdullah Sheikh, public relation secretary Altaf Ahmad Shah, press secretary Dr Ghulam Muhammad Ganai and Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar were not being allowed to enter the Hurriyat office and “their phone connections have also been snapped”. “Gealani’s contact with the whole world has been snapped,” he said.
Correcting the media reports about the proposed seminar on September 11, to highlight unnamed graves and public meeting on September 15, at Municipal Park here, the spokesman clarified that both these programmes were being organized by Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu Kashmir. “The other constituent units of Hurriyat Conference have also been invited to participate in these programmes,” he said.
