While strongly condemning the issuing of death threat to Syed Ali Geelani by a notorious gangster and underworld don Ravi Pujari, Hurriyat (G) said that whether it is Indian home minister Rajnath Singh or Ravi Pujari like uncivilized criminal, in short the intolerance in India is rising day by day and the lives, property and the honour of minorities particularly Muslims in this country is facing an acute threat. Hurriyat (G) however stated in clear terms that Syed Ali Geelani is not the person who will fear the spineless threats of Pujari like people and he will continue to pursue the Kashmir cause in future like he is doing from past 50 years and for which 18 murderous assaults had been made on him so far. In a statement to KNS, Hurriyat (G) spokesman Ayaz Akbar confirmed that a gangster named Ravi Pujari called on landline number of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat headoffice at Hyderpora at about08:45pm on Friday evening and talked in an uncivilized and abusive language. The spokesman said that the underworld don then himself confirmed the threat call on a private news channel of India and publically threatened to kill Syed Ali Geelani. Hurriyat (G) spokesman said that no power in the world can harm Syed Ali Geelani till he is protected by Almighty Allah and despite all these threat, he will continue to pursue his stand and he will continue his struggle for the liberation of Kashmir from Indian occupation. Hurriyat (G) spokesman said that issuing threat statements on a TV channel by some underground gangster raises many queries and questions and it clearly indicates that he have some way got the sponsorship of Indian government and the communal forces of this country and his sudden intervention in the Kashmir issue is not meaningless. Hurriyat (G) spokesman said that Ravi Pujari is a third-grade uncivilized goon and his threat to kill anybody is not any extraordinary or surprising issue but the matter of concern is the rising intolerance in India who is claiming to be the democratic country of the world and the deep concern is that everybody from ‘minister to peons, from defense minister to home minister’ in this country have started to speaks in the same language in which the Ravi Pujari like people are talking. Spokesman said that the few non-violent slogans by the students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) shook the entire India and from Rajnath Sing to Simriti Irani everybody is issuing threats to the poor students of an educational institution. This situation has ring an alarm bell across the minorities and lower caste Hindus and they strongly feel unsafe in this country. Hurriyat (G) spokesman further said that although Syed Ali Geelani had not taken the threat of Ravi Pujari seriously and he term it a childish act but the Indian government will be directly responsible for any unpleasant episode with him and they will be answerable for that. Hurriyat Conference (G) is planning to consult legal experts with regarding to the threatening of Syed Ali Geelani.
