Geelani condemns Sopore youth’s killing

Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani Saturday expressed deep concern over mysterious killings of a youth Arif Ahmad Sofi, son of a prominent freedom activist, in north Kashmir’s Sopore, saying that “there is no justification for these killings.”
“It is unfair and against humanity to kill a person for his specific ideology or affiliations,” Geelani said as per the statement issued here.
Denouncing these killings, Geelani said, “The mysterious killings will lead us to chaos. Teachings of Islam assign extra ordinary worth for human life and saving a human being is like saving of the whole humanity.”
Commenting on these incidents, he said, “Nothing with authenticity can be stated about these incidents and it is still a mystery to divulge about those involved in these secretive killings.
“There is no justification for such killings. Killing merely on political affiliations or for one’s political ideology is against teachings of Islam,” he said.
Geelani prayed for the departed soul and forbiddance to grieved family to bear this loss.
Meanwhile, a condolence meeting was held at Huriyat office in Hyderpora Srinagar.
Ghulam Nabi Sumji in chair and the participants including Hakim Abdul Rashid, M Yusuf Naqash, Syed Mohammad Shafi, Mohammad Yusuf Mujahid and others paid rich tributes to martyrs of Sopore massacre and extended their condolences to Mohammad Maqbool Sofi and family of Shaheed Sheikh Abdul Aziz over the death of her sister.
