Geelani Barred from Friday Prayers: Hurriyat G


KL Report


Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani continues to remain under house arrest as he was again barred from attending the Friday congregational prayers today, a spokesman of the conglomerate said in a statement.

“Though Geelani sahib was released for a very short period after the floods in Kashmir, as soon as the announcement for the election drama was made, he was once again confined to the four walls of his house. A huge consignment of police is deployed round the clock around the house of Geelani sahib and he is not being allowed to come out of his house,” he said.

“The house detention of Geelani sahib has no court orders like in the past and nor have police produced any written order from the state administration. A responsible leader is being detained in his home on the gun point and all his religious, social and political activities have been banned,” he added.

The spokesman said that it is the grave human rights violation and it doesn’t have any moral, legal and constitutional justification. He appealed all the human rights organizations to take serious notice of the continuous detention of the Geelani.

Meanwhile, the spokesman said, on Geelani’s appeal today most of the Masaajids of the Valley offered funeral prayers in absentia for the martyred children of Peshawar and prayers were held for the stability and prosperity of Pakistan. “Funeral prayers in absentia were also held at many places of Srinagar while as Peer Saifullah led the prayers at Hyderpora, Raja Mehraj-Ud-din at Masjid Iqra Saraibala and Muhammad Shafi Wagay in Islamabad where they also addressed the people,” he said.
