Srinagar—Hurriyat (M) chief Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was on Thursday placed under house arrest to prevent his participation in a seminar at the residence of Syed Ali Geelani to pay tributes to Imam Hussain (AS), grandson of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), a Hurriyat spokesman said.

He said that a posse of policemen arrived at the Nigeen residence of Mirwaiz and placed him under detention.

“Placed under #HouseArrest as I was about to leave for a seminar at Geelani Sb’s house to pay tributes to #ImamHussain(RA)& MartyrsOfKarbala,” tweeted Mirwaiz.

Jammu and Kashmir liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik was also barred from taking part in a seminar on Karbala martyrs in Srinagar, said a spokesman.

He said Malik had reached outside the residence of Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani in Hyderpora where the seminar was being held.

“He was not allowed to move inside and asked to leave,” said the spokesman.
