Deleting PSA provision by SAC: India overrules direction of her own Apex Court, says Geelani

Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani

Srinagar, July 31: Day after Jammu Kashmir Governor Administration done away with a legal provision that prohibited Government from lodging state subject residents detained under Public Safety Act in jails outside the state, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani said that the callous approach reflects the musty mindset and their prejudicial style against prisoners, detained under infamous Public Safety Act.

Condemning the despotic attitude of state authorities, Syed Ali Geelani, cautioned people about future detrimental proposals of New Delhi and their puppets and asked to conjointly fight against this lawlessness and remain watchful.


“They are even denying the directives of their supreme court wherein the court ruling lays that a prisoner should be kept in a jail as near as possible to the place of residence of his family,” Geelani said.

He said that the families and even their kids are badly suffering as the detainees are lodged in outside state jails and despite court rulings, hundreds of those detained were unnecessarily shifted, thus facing adverse situations and scorning and harsh temperatures.

Lashing at authorities, for their rhetoric for being a great democracy, Syed Ali Geelani said Geelani said that, “India is claiming to be a great democracy in world, however all its claims are proving hollow and instead they follow their bigoted dogma and their approach is quite barbaric and haughty. Judiciary too in India is biased,.”

Citing the cases wherein Indian judiciary failed to deliver justice, Geelani said that the cases related to Maqbool Bhat, Afzal Guru, rape and murder of Asifa, Asiya, Nilofer double murder and rape case, human shield case (Farooq Ahmad Dar) and added that theseare glaring example of bias approach, saying ‘’We have bitter experience that Indian judiciary”.
