SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference on Friday said India wants to kill its chairman Syed Ali Geelani without taking blame.
“That is why the government hasn’t produced any written court order regarding the house imprisonment of Syed Ali Geelani since last 7 years,” a spokesperson of the amalgam said in a statement.
It said the continuous house detention is taking a heavy toll on Geelani’s health.
“Geelani was barred from offering Friday prayers even in the month of Ramadhan,” the spokesperson said.
It condemned the arbitrary measures, saying illogical and unjustified restrictions illustrate the state-sponsored “terrorism”.
“The process of illegal house detention started in 2010 and is continuing in 2017. Authorities are silent as to how long will this extraordinary type of imprisonment continue,” the spokesperson said.
