Geelani was scheduled to “address the nation” Saturday, but security personnel cordoned off his residence. The communication lines to Geelani’s house were also snapped.

His statement, mailed to media later, said: “These three months have been the reiteration of… the simple truth that freedom is the right of every human being and it is a right we are destined to achieve.”

    Victory? Wow, separatists sure have a low standard for 'victory'. Next, victory would be to have a 12 year old pelt stones so that the real illiterata/unemplo culprits are not arrested. Get a couple of illiterate people shout out stuff - victory. I am glad that their standards are this low - because it will take generations to even get to a decent autonomy, independence is basically light years away at this pace! He needs to say this because everyone knows his efforts have resulted in nothing but deaths.

    The 100 days of seize of kashmir valley marred by street protest by stone throwing protesters after the death of Burhan wani is grave historical mistake of separatists. They have no understanding of the real issue of separatist movement of kashmir by mixing it with attack from stani terrorist LeT in the wrong time i.e. in the height of valley protest.

    The death of more than 96 youths of Kashmiri Muslim due to violent protest has been wasted by the unplanned and thoughtless attack from LeT and JeM in the wrong time. So, the surgical strike of Indian Army after Uri attack has overshadowed the genuine movement of right activists into stan sponsored terrorism. Said Ali Giliani is not a good leader to direct the movement in the right direction.
