Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani, who continues to be under house detention, was not again allowed to offer Friday prayers by police.

Condemning the 'autocratic and egoistic' behaviour of rulers and its authorities, a spokesman of the Hurriyat, in a statement today, said the amalgam chairman is not being allowed to offer Friday prayers for the last so many years.

"Delhi-groomed politicians are so obedient to their masters' dictates that they, after mortgaging their souls, forget to believe their own eyes and ears. Portraying opening of schools, market rush and transport on roads as their magic of good governance, but ground realities and hard facts can never be crushed by such deceit and deception," the spokesman said.

"Debarring a Muslim and a beloved leader of suppressed masses from offering Friday prayers is the outcome of the fascist mindset which legalizes and justifies such mean actions. Locking down of Grand Mosques and other religious places for months together speaks volumes of the practical measures being taken to implement the agenda of Hindu Rashtra for which coalition has come into existence," the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Geelani has condoled the demise of young journalist Arshad Malik of Kashmir Life. In his message, Geelani has prayed for the departed soul and sympathized with the bereaved family.
