Geelani calls for protests after Friday prayers against mass death sentence to Morsi supporters

SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani, Thursday called for peaceful protest demonstration after the Friday prayers against the mass death sentence to Morsi supporters including the general guide of Muslim Brotherhood Muhammad Badie by an Egyptian court.
In a statement, Geelani said “This incident is not related to a particular country, sect or party, but it is the matter of all Muslim Ummah and it is a religious duty of every Muslim to raise his voice against these incidents.”
While appealing the secretary general and officials of Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) to come forward to stop the state terrorism of Egyptian army generals and save the lives of Islamists in Egypt, Geelani said “General Al-Sisi is a Jewish agent and he is helping the international agenda of Zionist movement.”
“The mass death sentence of 529 persons is judicial murder and it is the extraordinary judgment of its kind, which has occurred first time in the history of judiciary,” Geelani said.
Geelani said that the persons who are on death row have not committed any crime except that they were desirous to see the Islam as a complete way of life and for this they were supporting the elected government of President Muhammad Mursi.
“Now it is the duty of every Muslim of the world to protest against this act of judicial terrorism and anti-Islamic acts of Egyptian army generals,” Geelani said.
He appealed Islamic scholars especially those who led Friday congregational prayers, to shed some light on the present situation of Egypt in their Friday sermons “and aware common people to hold peaceful protest demonstration against this act of state terrorism.”
