- Fear of ban is haunting Hurriyat Conference in Jammu and Kashmir
- Sign board removed from Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s house
- Accused of selling medical seats to Kashmiri students by taking money
- Cleanliness of Hurriyat – sends students abroad in a transparent manner
There is a flurry of ban on both the factions of the separatist Hurriyat Conference in Jammu and Kashmir. Meanwhile, the family of Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has started an exercise to avoid possible action by the administration. Suddenly the signboard of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat has been removed from the luxurious three-storey building of Hurriyat leaders in Hyderpura, Srinagar.
The Hurriyat faction led by Mir Waiz Umar Farooq is on the radar for selling medical and engineering seats. It is believed that this step has been taken to avoid action in this case. It is alleged that a racket was being run for Kashmiri students to get admission in medical and engineering colleges in Pakistan. Seats were being sold by taking money from these students. Apart from this, Hurriyat is also accused of promoting separatist activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

Mir Waiz, who is under house arrest in Srinagar, said on Monday that his organization has been sending Kashmiri students transparently to Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Turkey for medical-engineering studies. Mir Waiz said, ‘This propaganda is completely baseless. The students whose admission we have recommended can be confirmed by talking to them and their families. Many of them come from poor strata.
On August 5, 2019, after the removal of Article 370, both the factions of Hurriyat had closed the office in Rajbagh. In February 2020, the Mir Wiz-led Awami Action Committee opened its office. A residential property in Srinagar belonging to the Mir Waiz faction was allegedly acquired through hawala in 2000. A total of 26 separatist groups come under the All Party Hurriyat Conference. Before August 2019, he had an office in Rajbagh. But since then the official address of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat has been Geelani’s home.

Sources say that the sign board of the trust set up by Tehreek-e-Hurriyat and Geelani was removed on Sunday at the behest of his doctor son Naeem. This was done soon after the news of a possible ban on separatist groups from the Center under Section 3(1) of the UAPA spread. Hurriyat was formed in 1993 by 26 separatist groups. Hurriyat allies include Jamaat-e-Islami and JKLF (Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front). Both of them were banned by the Central Government in 2019 under the UAPA.
