Geelani grieved at Marriam Jameela’s demise
Srinagar, Nov 2: The chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani has expressed profound grief and sorrow over the demise of the great Islamic scholar and thinker Marriam Jameela, paying her glowing tributes.
Geelani said the late scholar had completely devoted her life to the service of Islam.
Meanwhile, a spokesman of the Hurriyat, in a statement today, strongly condemned the arrest of Geelani by the police.
“Geelani, who was under continued house arrest, today left his house with the intention to offer Friday prayers in a Masjid. But as soon as he left the house, he was arrested by the police and taken to police station,” said the spokesman.
Commenting on the gas crisis, Geelani, according to statement, has alleged that such problems were being deliberately created in Jammu and Kashmir. “Today we have gas crisis, tomorrow we will have power crisis and day after tomorrow ration crisis. In fact New Delhi wants to make the people of state realize that they are dependent on it for their basic needs. But fact remains that New Delhi’s forcible control of the state is the basic cause of every problem. We will be self-sufficient in everything once New Delhi leaves us free,” he said.
Geelani expressed serious concern over the plight of Muslims in Zanaskar. He alleged that the government had failed to provide them protection.
Geelani has also expressed serious concern over the continued detention of and slapping of PSA on Masrat Alam Bhat for the sixth consecutive time.
