NC-led Govt afraid of Hurriyat: Geelani

Seeks Release Of Activists Mir Hafizullah, Amir Hamza

Srinagar, Nov 6:  The chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday strongly condemned the detention of amalgam district president for Anantnag (Islamabad) Mir Hafizullah and arrest of other leader Amir Hamza, terming the police action as an “act of cowardice and violation of freedom to express.” 
 Lashing out at state administration, Geelani alleged that “Omar Abdullah led National Conference - Congress regime was afraid of Hurriyat activists.” “They cannot face us at political level. They are trying to suppress the voice of people and wish to win this battle by dint of power,” he said adding that “I take pity on them. Their attempts failed even in 1975 after Indra-Abdullah Accord, when they presumed that there could not be any reaction to their dynastic regime.”
 The octogenarian leader warned that local administration should understand that every family and each person in the state had offered sacrifices. He said the policy makers of New Delhi should understand that the situation like 1975 could not be repeated. 
 Geelani demanded immediate release of all the detainees including those of Hurriyat office-bearers. He termed as highly deplorable the sealing of Hurriyat office at Islamabad (Anantnag).
