Allegations against Yasin Malik baseless: Geelani

Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Thursday said that dossier against incarcerated chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik is known to everybody and people very well understand the mindset behind such “baseless accusations.”

In a statement Geelani said that “decades old cases have been discussed threadbare and the courts have acquitted the accused long back but even after acquittal the rulers try to dig out these dead horses to quench the thirst of the collective conscience.”

Geelani said, “The allegations like disturbing peace, threatening citizens’ lives or attacking schools against pro-freedom leadership are not even worth any response as such childish accusations just need to be laughed at.”

Hurriyat (G) chairman said, “Before signing such dossiers the authorities should apply their mind.”

“Instead of these childish actions, rulers need to get to the ground realities and show some bravery to defuse the volcano in waiting lest it may be too late to mend the situation,” he added.
