SRINAGAR: Huriyat Conference (G) has slammed the government for continuously disallowing its chairman Syed Ali Geelani to offer Friday prayers.
In a statement issued here, a spokesman of the conglomerate said stopping pro-freedom leaders from performing their religious responsibilities is gross violation of human rights and interference in the personal and religious rights.
Criticising authorities, the spokesman said “they have virtually turned state into a prison and basic rights are denied and trampled by authorities”.
It also condemned the continuous detention of JKLF chief Mohammad Yasin Malik and placing of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and other resistance leaders under house arrest.
The Hurriyat spokesman said administration has decided to detain Syed Ali Geelani for whole life and is yet to produce any written order regarding his detention.
“We challenged the illegal detention of Geelani and court in its verdict termed it illogical and unjustified. Administration is dishonouring the court ruling and hence the octogenarian leader continues to be under house arrest since 2010,” he said.
