Jammu and Kashmir news
Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Shah Geelani has called an anti-India seminar in Srinagar on June 14, to protest against what he calls Indian government’s “fascist agenda.”
Members of India’s minority communities including the Sikhs and the Christians have been invited for the Seminar including Akali Dal leader Simranjit Singh Mann.
As per media sources Geelani was quoted saying that the seminar was aimed to protest “communal forces” of India that are attempting to saffronise the Kashmir valley by implementing their “fanatic Hindutva” agenda. “And for this purpose they are using their state power and are breaching all the moral and cultural boundaries,” the Hurriyat leader added.
He further added that the communal and fascist agendas of the new government are deadly and if this isn’t countered, the existence and the identity of all the minorities of India will be in acute danger and their future will be very desolate.
The anti- India seminar has been named ‘How to Resist the Indian State Fascism’.
Geelani is known to conduct and spearhead anti-India rallies and events, and waving of Pakistani flags has become a routine at political events attended by him.
Recently, Geelani had caught media attention while applying to obtain an Indian passport. He had mentioned ‘Indian’ in the nationality column but told reporters shortly after that it was a compulsion to mention the same and he is not an Indian by birth.
