Terror funding case: NIA recovers Kashmir’s protest calendar authorized by Hurriyat hardliner SAS Geelani

By | August 6, 2017

The arrest of seven Hurriyat-affiliated separatist leaders by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) last Monday has led to the recovery of what the agency believes is concrete evidence of the involvement of Pakistan in fomenting violence and unrest in Jammu and Kashmir – a ‘protest calendar’, allegedly signed and authorised by hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

The detailed protest calendar, recovered by the NIA from Geelani’s son-in-law Altaf Ahmad Shah alias Funtoosh who was arrested on July 24 along with six others as part of the agency’s probe into an alleged terror-funding case, points to the role of Kashmiri separatists in organising events in coordination with handlers in Pakistan that have kept the Valley on the boil since the Armed Forces gunned down Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in July last year.

The document, according to a report in the Times of India, was signed and issued by Geelani and it lists when protests and other activities related to civil unrest were to be carried out in the Valley in the days following Wani’s death.
