Srinagar: Hurriyat (G) on Thursday said the reports of withdrawal of security to Syed Ali Geelani is a brazen lie and “such ridiculous reports need only to be laughed at”.
Hurriyat in a statement said that “the government always try to hoodwink the world by this unrealistic and false propaganda, and we want to clarify that Geelani was neither provided any security nor has he requested for it. He continues to be confined in his house for the last 9 years, and they claiming it to be the security is such a ridicules report and the government and its agencies should be ashamed of”.
“Similar false statement was aired by jingoistic media channels in 2014 floods when they claimed that staunch anti-India and pro-freedom leader Syed Ali Geelani is rescued by Indian army, but this brazen lie was exposed when everybody here knew that Geelani’s residence was safe and no water logging was in that area,” the statement said.
