“I have met Moulana Farooq Sahib many times while as Lone Sahab and I had spent a long time together.

I admire the services of the family of Moulana Farooq Sahab which they have done in the propagation and spreading the message of Peace (Islam) in Kashmir and I have always extolled the natural talent and courage of Abdul Gani Lone Sahab. I pray to Almighty Allah to grant them best place in Jannah,” Geelani said in his statement.
