New Delhi: Dal Khalsa on Sunday visited the ailing Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani at his New Delhi’s Maliya Nagar residence to enquire about his health condition.
As per the statement issued here, a Dal Khalsa delegation led by its general secretary, Kanwarpal Singh “paid a goodwill visit to ailing octogenarian Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Geelani at his Delhi residence”.
“The leaders exchanged notes on the current situation in Kashmir and political developments in the Indian sub-continent. Kanwarpal Singh also said the continuous house arrest has taken a toll on Geelani sahib’s health,” the statement said, adding, “Khalsa activists offered prayers for the good health and long life of Geelani.”
The statement said both leaders denounced the continuous detention of two JNU students and former lecturer of Delhi University, Prof SAR Geelani. “It was decided that concerted joint efforts be made to counter the noisy RSS-led campaign on sedition and Hindu nationalism. Both leaders deliberated upon the pro-freedom struggle of Kashmir and Punjab.”
Geelani, as per statement, urged the Sikh youth activists to “be disciplined and focused towards the mission of protecting your distinct identity”.
“We should not underestimate the strength of our oppressors and prepare our communities for a political struggle,” Geelani told the Sikh delegation which also included Prof Jagmohan Singh, Harjinder Sungh, Gurpreet Singh and Paramjit Singh.
