Police on Monday foiled the seminar organized by Chairman, Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on the Martyrs of  July 13, 1931.

Geelani had appealed people to participate in seminar titled, ‘Martyrs of 13th July 1931-Mission Incomplete’.

Hurriyat (G) spokesperson, Ayaz Akbar told CNS that since early morning police did not allow anyone to enter Geelani’s residence at Hyderpora here, the venue of the seminar. “Police had sealed even Airport Road and a large contingent of policemen in riot gears was deployed around Geelani Sahab’s residence that stopped participants of the seminar from entering the venue. Those stopped included party activists, journalists, civil society members, lawyers, traders and transporters. The domestic workers of Geelani were also not allowed to enter the house,” he said.

Akbar said that this was not the first time that Geelani Sahab was barred from organizing a seminar. “Not speaking of his outdoor activities even Geelani Sahab is not allowed to organize any seminar at his residence. This is the height of cruelity and we condemn this action of the government,” he said.

Condemning the police action, Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Geelani said that It is not for the first time that government has foiled our seminar. “Government is scared of this sacred freedom struggle and it is not providing any space to us. Repression and oppression will not desist us from taking this freedom struggle to its logical movement,” Geelani said.
