Srinagar, Dec 27: The chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani Thursday expressed profound grief and sorrow over the demise of the senior leader of Jama’at-e-Islami, Pakistan, Prof Ghafoor Ahmad , describing it an irreparable loss to Islamic Movement  in the subcontinent.
 Prof Ghafoor, (85), who was naib amir of Jama’at-e-Islami, Pakistan, passed away on Wednesday following protracted illness.
