Srinagar, December 12: Hurriyat (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday expressed grief over the killing of Mysera Begum in Handwara, saying forces are resorting to disproportionate and unjustified force against peaceful civilians.

Geelani said that opening movie theatres are un-Islamic move and against the norms of Islam and particularly keeping in view the sanctity of these places, the move is quite disheartening and unacceptable.

Quoting Geelani, spokesman said that “innocent killing is sheer state terrorisms, and authorities feel happy by resorting to excessive, reckless, unjustified use of force against peaceful and unarmed civilians in Kashmir, which is highly condemnable.”

Expressing solidarity with the bereaved family, he said that “killers roam free without any accountability and these forces have turned the state into a slaughterhouse.”

While referring to recent threatening statements from Indian leadership, Geelani has said that “since then, the situations has taken an ugly turn and killing graph has gone up.”

The octogenarian has also expressed his dismay over allowing movie theatres in Saudi Arabia, saying that, “the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) started his pious mission from this sacred land against infidels and polytheism and purified this land from all evils.”

Geelani said that opening movie theatres are un-Islamic move and against the norms of Islam and particularly keeping in view the sanctity of these places, the move is quite disheartening and unacceptable.

Cautioning about the consequences of this move, Geelani said that “rulers in Saudi Arabia being the custodian of Holy places like Madeena and Mecca, need to take care and however it is quite unfortunate that present ruling elite is allowing and promoting same obscene culture, which Islam has prohibited.”
