Prolonged detention worst kind of ‘state terrorism’: Geelani

Srinagar: Terming the arrests of pro-freedom leaders and activists and prolonging of their detention as a worst kind of state terrorism, chairman Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani said that due to the arrogance of power, administration and police are subjecting Kashmiris to the “political Vengeance”. The so-called local rulers are punishing Kashmiris for their freedom sentiments, he said.

According to a statement issued here, Geelani said that history has witnessed the worst and humiliating end of oppressors but the oppressors every time instead of taking lesson from the history, have joined the race of their precedents in cruelty and oppression.

He said that these arrests were unjustified and unconstitutional from the very first day and now prolonging of these detentions are the clear and worst kind of human rights violations. Detaining people despite bail and court orders, the administration is not releasing the leaders.

“This is actually a sign of arrogance and pride,” the veteran leader said.
