Tougher restrictions at Geelani’s residence
SRINAGAR, Aug 1: After he gave a slip to police recently, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) is facing tougher restrictions by cops at his residence at Hyderpora now..

A spokesman of his faction alleged that main gate of Geelani’s residence is being locked from outside by cops. Those intending to go inside are questioned and frisked minutely.

“Geelani sahab had planned to offer prayers outside on Jumatul Vida and Eid but it seems that the state government will not allow him to perform the religious duty and meet the people,” he added.

It may be recalled here that on July 28, Geelani’s party Tehreek-e-Hurriyat had planned a Nazool-e-Quran conference at his residence but police banned it. The conference was later held at Jamia Masjid, Hyderpora. Geelani gave a slip to policemen and came out of his residence, where he is under house arrest. He boarded a vehicle and reached the mosque to attend the conference. The Hurriyat (G) chairman addressed the people. Protest demonstrations were also held there and a procession was taken out.

The spokesman said that the protest and the procession was peaceful and those taking part in it, did not disrupt the peace. “The peaceful protest was an open reply to the baseless allegations of Omar Abdullah and police that presence of Geelani sahab leads to stone pelting and that is the reason for him placing him under house arrest,” he said.

According to the spokesman the police in the past have a number of times stopped the youth from protesting and used force against them, compelling them to resort to stone pelting.
