Youth should maintain discipline during resistance: Geelani

Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani

Srinagar, Oct 28: Strongly condemning the excessive force and crackdown against civilian population in south Kashmir’s especially Shopian, Kulgam and Pulwama districts, Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani Sunday expressed his deep concern over increasing use of “repressive” measures from forces against civilian populace and continuous detention of pro-freedom leaders and activists.

In a statement, Hurriyat (G) Chairman, while referring to Indian agencies and policy makers said “they have waged a war against civilians.”

Geelani, in his appeal to youth, asked to maintain discipline and order during “resistance and urged them to remain cautious and show wisdom.”

“It is of grave concern that police and forces through brutal actions are annoying youth to push them to wall,” Geelani said.

Hurriyat (G) Chairman said that authorities under a “well-thought conspiracy prolong their detention and are not released despite quashing their detentions by their own courts and directed state authorities for their release, yet they were rearrested.”
