SrinagarSyed Ali Geelani continues to be under house detention since last seven years and his continued house detention is taking heavy toll on his health, a Hurriyat spokesman said here today.
Meanwhile police arrested Hurriyat spokesman Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar from his residence and lodged him in police station Batamalo, reports said.
Tehreek-e- Hurriyat General Secretary Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai and Mohammad Ashraf Laya were also put under house arrest, said Hurriyat.
“The state has been virtually turned into police garrison and the state authorities are creating emergency like situations and curbs and uncalled for restrictions on peaceful political activities has deflated their rhetoric for battle of ideas.
Hurriyat while condemning the state authorities for their dictatorial approach said that since year 2010, Syed Ali Geelani is confined to four walls of his residence as police authorities have practically turned his residence into a sub jail.
Hurriyat while denouncing state authorities for their despotic approach, said that they failed to justify illegal confinement of Syed Ali Geelani and added it is sheer bullying and illustrates the height of lawlessness in state.
Hurriyat Conference termed the continuous detention of Geelani as open demonstration of state terrorism and while ridiculing coalition regime led by Mehbooba Mufti for their rhetoric about: Battle of Ideas and Goli Nahi Boli, said that their all slogans and tall claims proved fraud and hoax.
