In a “unique expression of solidarity”, Dal Khalsa activists led by party general secretary Kanwarpal Singh paid a goodwill visit to ailing octogenarian Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Geelani at his Delhi residence.
“They exchanged notes on the current situation in Kashmir and political developments in the Indian sub-continent,” a statement issued by Dal Khalsa said Sunday afternoon.
Dal Khalsa activists offered prayers at a historic Gurdwara for the good health and long life of Hurriyat patriarch Geelani.
Kanwarpal Singh said, “the continuous house arrest of Geelani has taken the toll of his health.”
Notably, Geelani was discharged from Max hospital yesterday after his health conditions improved.
“Both the leaders denounced the continued detention of two JNU students and former Delhi University former Professor SAR Geelani. It was decided that concerted joint efforts be made to counter the noisy RSS-led campaign on sedition and Hindu nationalism. Both the leaders deliberated upon the nuisances of pro-freedom struggle of Kashmir and Punjab,” the statement added.
“Geelani, while talking to the Sikh youth activists urged them to be disciplined and focused for the mission of protecting their distinct identity,” the statement informed.
Quoting Geelani, the statement said, “we should not underestimate the strength, chicanery and wrath of our oppressors and prepare our communities for a political struggle.”
