Shoes hurled at Islamist Geelani

Some Hindu hardliners and the refugee groups of Kashmiri Pandits vehemently agitated today in New Delhi against an advocacy forum in the support of “Azad (Free) Kashmir”. The nexus between the Islamists, Naxlaites and some pak sponsored separatist sikh groups including some anti Indian writers were clear from the dais sponsoring separation of Kashmir from Hindusthan.

Hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani (accused attacker upon Indian parliament) and writer-activist Arundhati Roy were present in the convention under the banner “Azaadi: the only way” in New Delhi.

A shoe was thrown towards hardliner Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani at a function in New Delhi on Thursday as a group of people, including Kashmiri Pandits, staged a strong protest against his presence.

The protestors, shouting slogans like ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ , ‘Vande Mataram’ , ‘ Jab tak Suraj Chand rahega, Kashmir  Hindustan mein Hoga’ and ‘ stone-palters go to Pakistan’ created ruckus at the convention on ‘Azaadi — The Only Way’ which was being attended by a number of sympathisers of Kashmiri separatists and naxals.

Though Geelani was yet to speak, the protesters numbering around 100 shouted slogans asking him to leave for Pakistan.

Amid the pandemonium, someone threw a shoe towards Geelani on the dais but it missed to hurt him, slightly touching.

A human chain was immediately thrown around him on the dais by the security personnel and organisers to protect the leaders on the dais.

The protestors were taken out by police personnel later.

At the time of the protest, S A R Geelani, a lecturer who was accused in the Parliament attack case but later set free, was speaking on the topic. This Islamic leader was set free by the endless efforts by the advocates connected with the pro-islamic and pro-naxal advocacy groups under some banners of so-called human right groups.
