Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front Friday staged a protest against the detention of SAR Geelani and demanded his immediate release. The Front organized a protest in Soura in the outskirts of Srinagar city that was led by vice chairman JKLF Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi.
Carrying banners that sought the release of SAR Geelani the protesters stated that choking peaceful space on dissent and arresting people for sedition merely for standing with truth is a ploy to create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.
Prolonging incarceration of Professor SAR Geelani and others show the double faced and hypocritical approach of Indian rulers, Showkat Ahmed Bakshi said. Besides Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi, Noor Muhammad Kalwal and others also participated in the protest rally. (CNS)
