Srinagar: India’s underworld don Ravi Pujari has issued death threat to Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani on Friday evening.
In a statement, Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar confirmed that a notorious gangster called on landline number of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat headoffice at Hyderpora at about 08:45pm on Friday evening and talked in an uncivilized and abusive language.
“The underworld don then himself confirmed the threat call on a private news channel of India and publically threatened to kill Geelani Sahab,” Akbar said.
He said issuing threat statements on a TV channel by the fugitive gangster raises many questions and it clearly indicates that “he have some way got the sponsorship of Indian government and the communal forces of this country and his sudden intervention in the Kashmir issue is not meaningless”.
“It reflects the rising intolerance in India where the lives, property and honour of minorities particularly Muslims in India is facing an acute threat. Geelani Sahab is not the person who will fear the spineless threats of Pujari like people.
“He will continue to pursue the Kashmir cause in future like he is doing from past 50 years for which 18 murderous assaults had been made on him so far,” the spokesman said.
