Srinagar, Nov 11: Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani has condemned police action against the leaders of the conglomerate.
 “The state government is afraid of our party workers and leaders. Government cannot face us at political level. One of our party leaders Mir Hafizullah was arrested on personal enmity by a police officer,” Geelani said in a statement.
 Hafizullah was rearrested few days after his release and booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA).
 “We would take this issue to the different international human right forums including Amnesty International. Government cannot suppress the freedom movement. They cannot deter us from our mission,” Geelani said.
 Geelani demanded that all the political prisoners be released without any delay and the pro-movement parties and activists be allowed to carry on with their political activities.
