Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani was arrested Friday as he stepped out to march towards Jamia Masjid.
“Geelani defied his house detention so he was taken into custody,” police sources told Rising Kashmir. They added that Geelani was shifted to police station Humhama.
Pertinently, joint separatist leadership has called for “Jamia Masjid” challo today.
Before his arrest, Geelani while talking to media persons impressed upon people to exhibit steadfastness to carry forward the ongoing movement. “I appeal and stress upon people to remain persistent and steadfast so that the current movement can be taken forward successfully,” Geelani said adding “we will not budge even an inch this time as we have already sacrificed nearly sixty dear ones so it is high time for India to accept Kashmir as a dispute and start the process of its resolution.”
