Both dedicated lives for sacred cause: Geelani

SRINAGAR: Paying tributes to Mirwaiz Moulana Farooq and Khawaja Abdul Gani Lone on their anniversaries, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani said both leaders played a glaring role for the ongoing movement for right to self-determination.
Recalling his personal relation with both leaders, Geelani in a statement said he always treated them as younger brothers.
They had immense leadership qualities and had dedicated their lives for the sacred cause of freedom movement, he said.
Geelani expressed hope the followers of both leaders will lead their mission with zeal and zest and stand rock solid against those “hell-bent to exploit their sacrifices for petty interests”.
Terming Moulana Farooq as an Islamic scholar and great orator and Abdul Gani Lone as a seasoned politician and a statesman, Hurriyat (G) chairman urged people to observe complete shutdown on May 21 and make ‘Eidgah Chalo’ programme a grand success.
