SRINAGAR, JULY 05 (PTK):Seriously concerned about the worsening health of its chairman Syed Ali Geelani, All Parties Hurriyat Conference said that although physical weakness is because of his advanced age, but continued confinement in his house has grossly effected his well being.
Keeping a political personality away from his routine engagements and forcibly preventing him from participating in any social, religious or family function puts a lot of stress. It is surprising that mighty Indian establishment is scared of an old, frail man and feels comfortable by putting curbs on his activities.
Hurriyat said that pulling all along through his turbulant political carrier, Syed Ali Geelani has always been an eyesore for the opponents, both oppressor and their paid pawns.
To force this powerful voice to subjugation, first his close associates and amalgam workers have been booked in fabricated cases and put behind bars. When they failed to get him in line, they started targeting his children and grand children through so-called investigating agencies.
Hurriyat said that it is only by the grace of Almighty Allah and prayers of his well-wishers—that he faces the oppressive onslaught so bravely and is determined to stand his ground.
Hurriyat said that despite his bad health he chaired an important meeting of the forum, but because of his chest infection and physical weakness, he is under strict advice of doctors and is recovering.
Hurriyat appealed people to pray for speedy recovery of Geelani. (PTK)
