Geelani castigates police for implicating workers


“Denying space for political activities will revive gun culture”

SRINAGAR: Strongly castigating police for allegedly involving  its party workers in fictitious cases, Hurriyat (G) Chairman, Syed Ali Geelani has said that police in order to overcome its weakness and in order to make its party workers as scapegoats, involves  them in  fabricated cases.

Referring the case of Tehreek Huriyat Worker Ab Majid Lone from logripora Bomia ,Syed Ali Geelani added that police without any evidence is hell-bent to involve him in a murder case of Sarpanch.

Syed Ali Geelani in his press statement said, “No doubt the role of panchs and Sarpanchs is detrimental for ongoing movement and we believe in facing our opponents in a democratic way  and we wish them to include  in our folds and movement  but in a civilized and polite way’’.

Monday in a press release ,from Delhi, Syed Ali Geelani said that in recent past police adopted the same approach and  tried to involve its party leader Nasir Abdullah in murder case of Sarpanch “and later on  even Omer Abdullah announced that neither any Mujahid nor any political worker is involved in killings of panch and  Sarpanch”.

Referring the case of a Sarpanch, killed in Logripora Sopore, Syed Ali Geelani alleged that police called Tehreek Huriyat worker Ab Majid Lone and arrested him and subjected him to severe torture and was compelled to confess his involvement in said murder case.

Castigating police for its alleged ruthless attitude Syed Ali Geelani said that mainstream leaders blame each other for the said killings of panchs and sarpanchs, but police is hell bent to victimize the Tehreek Huriyat workers and the organization.

Huriyat Chairman in a serious warning said the way police and authorities exhibit their undemocratic behavior and leave no space for political activities will definitely pave way for revival of gun culture.
