Jammu and Kashmir Government Lifts Restrictions on Movement of Separatist Leaders

A fortnight after he resigned as the Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, aged separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani was released on Friday from house detention after over five years of continuous detention.

Witnesses said that the police had to burst a few teargas canisters when a huge crowd began chanting pro-freedom and pro-Pakistan slogans as Geelani walked out of Jama Masjid Hyderpora after offering prayers.

Hakeem Yaseen has also suggested to release all the political prisoners unconditionally adding that separatist leaders should be taken on board in dialogue process for amicable resolution of vexed Kashmir imbrilogo.

Geelani joined the devotees on Friday at the Hyderpora mosque some distance away from his home here.

He, however, said the trio should not make anti-national speeches or create a law and order problem.

Mr Geelani, widely known as a hard nut to crack among the separatist, had been under house arrest for the past eight years. During these five years, he was freed only when he visited New Delhi during winters. "India should withdraw troops from J&K and grant plebiscite to people to determine their future", Geelani said.

He said the United Nations resolutions have described J&K as a "disputed territory" and called for granting the right to self-determination to J&K people so that they can determine their fate.

Hailing youth for their passion commitment, and enthusiasm, the Hurriyat (G) chairman said that the joint resistance leadership would meet soon to chalk out a fresh strategy.

"The current people's leadership is equally committed and is honest and steadfast, and like the tremendous sacrifices being offered by the people especially youth, it is also facing hardships", he said.

"The NIA investigation drama to intimidate and badmouth the leadership and dishearten people and disillusion them from their just political movement and their leadership has proved to be a failure for the agencies, as people saw through it".

Moderate Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq today said it was up to the government to withdraw his security cover as he had never asked for it.

"Now the propaganda of police cover provided to me is being raked up and exploited by the government", he said.
