Geelani let out to pray after 8 years of house detention

Geelani let out to pray after 8 years of house detention”

Later, Syed Ali Geelani, who had recently stepped down as chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat and installed his confidant, Ashraf Sehrai, as the new chairman, went to the local mosque in Hyderpora here to offer Friday prayers.

The procession of youths who took Geelani from the mosque to his Hyderpora residence, near where he addressed a public rally, threw stones at policemen deployed to maintain law and order, causing chaos on the airport road for some time.

Reacting to Vaid's statement that trio were "free to go anywhere they wish to as long as they don't indulge in any anti-national activities", Geelani said, "I won't jump on the decision of the government to release me".

"When we inquired (about the presence of police personnel), it was communicated that it was obligatory on the state to provide the cover based on their assessment of threat perception to me after my fathers Shahadat (martyrdom), and will not be removed", he said. We don't want to snatch a part of India. He asked the people to "remain steadfast till the goal of right to self determination is achieved".

"India is suffering from arrogance of power and is using an imperialistic and coercive attitude in the disputed territory of J&K", he said.

Referring to the lifting of curbs, he said, "The police chief has said that the curbs have been lifted and they are free".

While commenting over the future course of action, Huriyat chairman said that Joint resistance leadership will meet in near future to chalk out a fresh strategy. "After which I, Mirwaiz, and Yasin Malik decided in the morning that we will address Friday gatherings in several mosques".

A top security force officer who did not want to be named, however, said not much should be read in the decision to allow Geelani move about freely.

Such restrictions have always accompanied placing Geelani, Mirwaiz and Malik under house arrest to ensure that these separatist leaders are prevented from joining anti-government protests.

"The current people's leadership is equally committed and is honest and steadfast, and like the tremendous sacrifices being offered by the people especially youth, it is also facing hardships", he said. "Viscous propaganda, lies and personal smear campaigns is launched on print electronic or social media and facts are twisted and manipulated". "These devious tactics won't keep people away from me or me away from them and the freedom movement", he said.

He said that now the police cover provided to him is being raked up and exploited by the government.
