Geelani Presses Pak For Role In Bangla JI Leader’s Release

SRINAGAR: The chairman of the Hurriyat (G), Syed Ali Shah Geelani, has asked the Pakistan government to play its role in securing the release of Bangladesh’s Jama’at-e-Islami (JI) leader Prof Aazam.

Expressing concern at the aging JI leader’s health, Geelani said that the Sheikh Hasina government had launched a crackdown on pro-Islam forces in the country, and asked Islamabad to use its influence to end Dhaka’s “adventurism” against religious organisations.

Geelani also asked Muslim organisations in India and Pakistan to co-opt the OIC in seeking the 90-year-old leader’s release from jail.
