Hurriyat (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Friday completed seven years under house detention, a Hurriyat spokesperson said.
In a statement issued to Brighter Kashmir, the spokesperson, said that “no court has ever issued any formal detention order for Geelani’s detention.”
Stressing that Geelani has been detained at “gunpoint”, the spokesperson strongly condemned the house detention of Geelani and said that “the rule of law has been thrown to dust in Kashmir.”
Geelani was placed under house arrest in 2010 during the National Conference led government under the chief ministership of Omar Abdullah, the statement said.
He was briefly released just before the 2014 assembly elections during which he led massive rallies in southern and northern parts of Kashmir including Sopore, Kulgam and Kupwara, it said.
However, later he was again put under house detention.
The statement said, “Although the present coalition partner Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had raised much hue and cry about Geelani’s detention when it was in opposition, but, as soon as it came into power, it was no different towards Geelani.”
“During all these years Geelani was hardly ever allowed to offer congregational Friday prayers in a mosque,” it said.
