Srinagar:Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani has appealed people to hold protests after Eid congregational prayers against violence, bloodshed and atrocities.
Geelani appealed people hold peaceful symbolic protest demonstration for half an hour after the Eid prayers against the harassment of Jammu Muslims at the hands of RSS-Mufti Sayeed coalition government, attempts of making demographic changes, not releasing the political prisoners before the Eid, mysterious killings and arresting of hundreds of youth in the entire valley.
He urged people to celebrate the Eid with austerity and simplicity and according to the Islamic principles. We should not forget those brave hearts of the soil on this day of pleasure who sacrificed their lives for the better future of their nation and had left behind a huge responsibility on us in the shape of their widows, half-widows and orphans, he said.
