Srinagar, January 30, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Tehreek-e-Hurriyet Jammu and Kashmir has said that its Chairman Syed Ali Gilani has not been allowed to offer Juma prayers in two years.
The High Court of the occupied Kashmir has directed Syed Ali Gilani to file a supplementary affidavit regarding his movement within four weeks in response to the affidavit filed by the puppet authorities after he said he was not allowed to offer Juma prayers for two years during his stay at Hyderpora residence in Srinagar.
The directives were passed by a single bench of the High Court comprising Justice Mohammad Yaqoob Mir on a contempt petition filed by the octogenarian leader on August 10, 2011.
Earlier, Advocate Mian Abdul Qayoom argued: “This is not a fact that restrictions are imposed only on the main road. Even today when Syed Ali Gilani is in New Delhi, there is a police picket outside his residence. Nobody is allowed to go in and he has not been allowed to offer prayers for two years.”
He argued that whenever he is placed under house arrest, the authority does not serve any order upon him. “The court had stated that if any restrictions had to be imposed on Gilani, the administration had to issue an order so that Gilani could know about it and give an explanation,” Qayoom said.
