Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani Friday criticized the issuance of summon to Dr Bilqees Shah, the wife of incarcerated senior Hurriyat leader by the Enforce Department (ED) to appear before its head office at Delhi.
According to the statement issued here, Geelani said that that the purpose of such ‘illogical actions’ of ED against the pro-freedom leaders like Shabir Ahmad Shah, Dr, Bilqees Shah, Mohammad Aslam Wani and Zamir Ahmad Sheikh is to prolong their detention and create a frightful atmosphere among other pro-freedom activists
He also condemned the unnecessary harassment caused to another incarcerated Hurriyat leader Ghulam Mohammad Khan Sopori at Kortbalwal Jail by the Enforce Department.
The statement added that Khan Sopori was forced to leave his residential house at Chanpora Srinagar and the case is subjudice so the ED has no logic to victimize him in the jail premises.
Meanwhile, Geelani paid tributes to the slain Nowgam militants including Abu Ismail and Chota Qasim and prayed for their eternal peace.
The spokesman as per the statement said that a peaceful protest march was organized by Hurriyat Conference, which was led by Bashir Ahmad Qureshi. Senior Hurriyat leaders Molvi Bashir Irfani, Nisar Hussain Rather, Mohammad Yasin Atai, Syed Mohammad Shafi, Imtiyaz Ahmad Shah, Syed Imtiyaz Hyder, Rafiq Owasi, Mudasir Nadvi also attended the protest march, which was organized against the ‘sinister designs’ of India to change the Muslim majority demography of the state, forced displacement and killing of Rohangiya Muslims and against the frequent raids of NIA in Kashmir.
