Hurriyat Conference (g) chairman Syed Ali Geelani is continuously under house arrest from last four months and Friday on August 7 he was once again stopped from offering the Friday congregational prayers, spokesperson of the conglomerate said in a statement to KNS.

Terming the government action as clear violation of the law and constitution, Hurriyat (g) appealed the Amnesty International and other human rights organization to take serious notice of holding of pro-freedom leader hostage “on gun point and use their influence in his release.”

“Since the valley return of Geelani Sahab from New Delhi on 15 April, he was today 16th time forcibly stopped from performing the important religious obligation and during this entire period he only once succeeded in offering the congregational prayers. The authorities today deployed more police force around the residence of Geelani Sahab. A senior police officer was also deployed here from the early morning. While strongly condemning the continuous house detention of Geelani Sahab,” he said.

“Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had surrendered very before the start of the battle of ideologies and he had practically accepted the defeat and he can’t face the pro-freedom leadership particularly the Syed Ali Geelani on the political turf. However, the government can imprison Geelani Sahab but containing his ideology and ideas is not possible for anyone. Geelani Sahab represents the sentiments and aspirations of the majority of Kashmiri people and his ideology is widely accepted in the state and there are millions of Geelanis now in Kashmir who will never accept the sovereignty of India,” Hurriyat (g) statement added.

Meanwhile, paying rich and glorious tributes to the Pulwama youth Talib Hussain Shah who was killed in Kakpora Pulwama gunfight, Geelani said, “our brave-hearts are sacrificing their lives for the freedom struggle of their nation and they put a heavy responsibility on our shoulders that we have to carry forward their mission in every way and at any cost.”

While strongly condemning the ransacking of households, braking of windowpanes and using excessive force against the people by the army, Geelani while addressing the funeral procession of the slain militant said, “The government forces take revenge of the presence of the Mujahideens from the common people and administration is watching all this as mute spectators.”

“On the directions of Geelani, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat senior leaders Ameer Hamza Shah and Bashir Ahmad Qurashi visited the residence of the slain youth in Kakpora where they expressed condolence and sympathy with the family members of Talib Hussain Shah,” the statement said.

“Indian forces have not only completely destroyed the house in which the Mujahid was but they in the revenge broke down the windows and doors of many neighbouring houses and also looted cash and precious items from there. Two lakh and fifty five thousand rupees have been stolen only from the house of Ghulam Rasool Wagay and the other houses holds which bore the brunt of the government forces are hiding their names due to the fear of army and STF,” the Hurriyat (g) leaders alleged.

“We strongly condemn this worst kind of state terrorism. Indian armed forces are committing worst kind of war crimes in the Jammu & Kashmir and the so-called civil government of the state has miserably failed in protecting the lives, property and dignity of the common people,” they alleged.

Hurriyat (g) appealed the world bodies to take serious notice of the atrocities of forces on Kashmiris and fulfil their responsibility.
