'If allowed, Geelani will address public meeting at TRC today'
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Sep 22: Expressing serious concern over the continued house arrest of its chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani, the Hurriyat Conference (G) on Thursday asked police to give up, what it said, its attitude of more loyal than the king and lift restrictions on his (Geelani’s ) free movement.
“If police lifts siege from his residence and allows him free movement, Syed Ali Shah Geelani will offer Friday prayers at TRC Jamia Masjid, Srinagar, on September 23, and address a public meeting before prayers,” a Hurriyat (G) spokesman said in a statement.
Geelani is also scheduled to address a seminar titled “Human rights violations in beautiful jail” being organized by Hurriyat on September 25, Sunday, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Hyderpora here. Besides Geelani, prominent human rights activists, intellectuals, journalists and lawyers are scheduled to speak on the topic at the seminar. People have been urged to attend the event in large numbers.
“Police have not been allowing Geelani to offer Friday prayers for months now. This is sheer inference in the religious affairs. He was not even allowed to participate in the marriage ceremony of his grandson and granddaughter,” said the spokesman, terming Geelani continued house arrest as the worst human rights violation.
