On Sunday, MP G N Ratanpuri had to return back after meeting chairman Hurriyat (G), Syed Ali Shah Geelani from a distance. But on early Monday morning NC lawmaker received a message from Delhi Police Commissioner-Neeraj Kumar who told him “you can go and meet Geelani today.”

“I went to meet him (Geelani) and he told me former J&K CM-Sheikh Abdullah shouldn’t have agreed to accord in 1975,” Ratanpuri revealed and soon made it public through his Facebook page.

While sharing his moments spent with aged separatist, who has been put under house arrest at his Delhi’s residence soon after the execution of Parliament attack accused-Afzal Guru, Geelani advised him to be patient.  “Indeed the promise of Allah is truth. And let them not disquiet you who are not certain (in faith).”

Ratanpuri while recalling his meeting with separatist leader, who remained incommunicado for a while now, said that the leader told him that India is a big power and power has corrupted the land of Ram and Gandhi.

”My suggestion is that, Dalits having suffered extreme atrocities through millennia, have empowered themselves and expect a Dalit Prime Minister in near future,” MP quoted Geelani, adding, “But they (Dalits) will continue to face atrocities on a lower scale. This doesn’t frustrate them to shift their focus from educational and economic empowerment evoked an emotional narration of killings of Muslims in Jammu in 1947 and elsewhere thereafter as also during the last 23 years.”

As per NC’s parliament member, Geelani during meeting with him, described his health problems and asked, “How does the largest democracy justify illegal confinement of an 83-year-old man with pace maker and with only half a kidney, suffering from chronic asthma, cervical spondylosis and prostate problem?”

Ratanpuri whose “Tumbhakh Naari Nachaya” comments created much public amusement recently, said that he suggested ailing leader that genuine Kashmiris in mainstream politics, besides IAS and IPS may help in lessening miseries of Kashmiris and lead to some empowerment. “But he was not impressed. He said Kashmir is an occupied territory and all the miseries are offshoots of this problem.”

MP says Geelani was visibly sad and probably tired also. “Before taking leave I sought his permission for some photos, which he was kind to grant.”
