Syed Ali Shah Geelani quits Hurriyat, says collegues backing Centre's Kashmir plan

Deccan Chronicle

SRINAGAR: Feeling hurt at being sidelined in certain decision-making and underhand disparagement of his role within the amalgam, Kashmir's separatist patriarch Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Monday announced his decision to quit the Hurriyat Conference.

Sources privy to the development said the nonagenarian politician's move may have come as a surprise to many outside the Hurriyat Conference but within the amalgam it was being anticipated for quite some time. However, it was the endorsement by the Hurriyat Conference (G)'s Valley-based 'advisory council' of an earlier decision taken by its Pakistan and PoK chapter to remove his close confidante, Syed Abdullah Geelani, as its emissary in Islamabad that pulled the trigger, sources said.
