Geelani calls for Friday protests


Srinagar: Condemning the ‘murderous assault’ by the police on senior Hurriyat leader and JKLF chief Mohammad Yaseen Malik and continuous house arrest of the pro-freedom leaders Hurriyat (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday appealed people to hold peaceful protest demonstrations after Friday prayers in every region of the state.

Geelani said pro freedom leaders are attacked and others like Shabir Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Altaf Ahmad Shah and Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar are detained while police raids on the residences of many Hurriyat leaders and activists continue.

Blaming the BJP-PDP coalition government for the Udhampur like incidents, Geelani said that BJP is an open book of communal hatred and Mufti Sayeed Sahab by merging with this party gave them a chance to rule Jammu & Kashmir and they openly showed their communal and fascist face to the people of the state.

He said that the death of Zahid Rasool and life threatening burn injuries to the Showkat Ahmad is a big tragedy for the Muslims of Kashmir and these activities of the government sponsored terrorists should be condemned at each level and every conscience person should protest this grave incident. 

Hurriyat leader said that “God forbid if our youths will harm or damage the Jammu bound vehicles that too will be condemnable. We have to protest against the inhuman and terrorist actions of the communal forces and in reaction to that we have to show extreme maturity and farsightedness and we have to show difference between the attackers and peace loving people”. 

Geelani also appealed the Muslims and peace loving people of Pir Panjal and Chenab valley to hold peaceful protest demonstration on Friday and send a strong message to the communal forces that their evil designs are never going to succeed and we are united against such terrorism.
