A high level Sikh Delegation visited Geelani’s Residence today. After the killing of a Sikh youth in clashes between a Sikh group and the Police in J&K, the anger had reached Srinagar as well. Sikh organisations and groups in Srinagar came forward and protested against the killing.
Geelani announced support against the Sikh killing in Jammu which was vehemently criticized throughout the state. After the youth killing, Mirwaiz Umar Farooz condemned the mishappening, saying, “Killing of innocents has become a norm in Jammu and Kashmir. Police have been given a license to kill at will.” Hurriyat hardliner Geelani had also expressed solidarity with the victim’s family and said that Killing innocents and then projecting them as violators and miscreants has become a norm in Jammu & Kashmir.
