Prominent religious cleric Mushtaq Veeri released

Srinagar, Oct 31 : A prominent religious cleric and Vice President of Jamiat-e-Ahle Hadees, Moulana Mushtaq Ahmad Veeri was on Saturday released from detention.

A relative of Veeri confirmed to the news agency that Moulana Mushtaq Ahmad Veeri has reached home and he was welcomed by locals as well as by relatives.

Veeri was arrested on February 24, 2019 following a crackdown on Kashmir’s largest socio-religious organisation Jama’at-e-Islami.

He was later booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) and was shifted to Kot Balwal Jail in Jammu.

Pertinently, Veeri was released a few days after the release of cleric Sarjan Ahmad Barkati—(KNO)
