Srinagar, Senior Hurriyat Conference (g) leaders on Friday while terming octogenarian Hurriyat patriarch Syed Ali Geelani as a symbol and “icon of freedom movement”, prayed for his speedy recovery.
In a statement, the leaders including Gh Nabi Sumji hailed Geelani for his “immaculate and unblemished character and generous services” rendered for the ongoing freedom movement.
They said that those quarters who for their mean and selfish politics are known to everyone in the state should know that they are puffing against the wind and stand exposed.
The leaders appealed the people to pray for his well-being.
Meanwhile, the leaders said that abrogation or tinkering in article 35A is unacceptable for people and while ridiculing the rhetoric and parroting of pro-Indian parties, the leadership termed their hue and cry as mere drama and a political gimmick.
