Chairman Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Geelani continued to remain under the house arrest Friday on 8th January and he was once again forcibly stopped from the Friday congregational prayers. While terming the government policies as cruel and unjustified, Hurriyat (G) spokesman Ayaz Akbar condemned it in strong words. In a statement to KNS, spokesman said that the PDP-BJP coalition government is exactly following the policies of Omer Abdullah with regarding to the Syed Ali Geelani and the government has failed to produce any legal and constitutional justification for this imprisonment. Hurriyat (G) Spokesman said that Syed Ali Geelani has completed 265 days under house imprisonment during the 9 months rule of PDP led government in Jammu & Kashmir. It is the clear violation of the state constitution and the grave human rights violation which should be condemned at each level. Hurriyat (G) once again appealed the Amnesty International and International Red Cross Committee to take serious notice of the illegal detention of Syed Ali Geelani and use their influence in making his release.
