A top Kashmiri separatist accused India of preventing him from attending Sikh separatist commemorations of the army's storming of Amritsar's Golden Temple in 1984. Geelani said he had hoped to become the first Kashmiri separatist to attend the annual commemorations on June 4 but that he had been put under house arrest since June 1.

Speakers at an event organized to pay homage to the veteran Kashmiri Hurriyat leader and icon of Kashmir freedom movement, Syed Ali Gilani, ahead of his first martyrdom anniversary falling on Thursday (September 01).

Ghulam Muhammad Safi in his inaugural address said the name of Syed Ali Gilani needs no introduction in the history of the subcontinent as he was a charismatic personality. He said that the Kashmir dispute is a volcano that poses serious threat to the global peace. He added that Indian authorities wanted to break the resolve of the veteran leader by keeping him in detention but failed in their nefarious designs.

Mahmood Ahmad Saghar said the mission of Syed Ali Gilani will be taken to its logical conclusion at all costs. He said whether we remain alive or not, this struggle will continue.
