SRINAGAR: Blaming Omer Abdullah led Government for promoting hooliganism, Hurriyat (G) today strongly criticized the continues detention of its Chairman Syed Ali Geelani.
A party spokesman castigated the administration for what it called duel and undemocratic approach and added the Omer Abdullah led government was hell-bent to muzzle the genuine voice of the people.
While denying the basic rights to its leader to perform religious duties and prayers the state Govt has virtually accepted the defeat at political front, a statement read.
Though the administration has decided to detain Syed Ali Geelani forever but no announcement or any legal or administrative order in this regard has been served so far, the statement added.
They are afraid and frustrated and are not allowing him to venture outside his residence. It is total injustice, it added.
Syed Ali Geelani is under continuous house arrest since 2010, it said.
Refuting the claim of police chief, spokesman stated that the statement issued by authorities was a blatant lie and deceitful, Syed Ali Geelani was never allowed to offer Friday prayers in local mosque and a large contingent of police is surrounding his residence.
