New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has found a detailed protest calendar issued and signed by Hurriyat hardliner Syed Ali Shah Geelani during a crackdown on Kashmiri separatist leaders for their alleged involvement in funding terror activities, underlining the party’s role in instigating violence in Jammu and Kashmir.

According to The Times of India, the ‘protest calendar’ was recovered from Geelani’s son-in-law Altaf Ahmad Shah ‘Funtoosh’.

It marked the activities for August 2016, a month after the encounter of Hizbul Mujahideen leader Burhan Wani on July 08, 2016, said the daily.

 

Here is how Hurriyat fanned the violence that led to several deaths in clashes between stone pelters and security forces:

August 06, 2016 – Geelani called for gathering and occupying local chowks and centres close to mohallas, villages and localities, and playing of Islamic and azaditaranas in mosques.

August 08, 2016 – The calendar called for blocking all roads towards and around the civil secretariat in Srinagar and ensuring that no employee was able to report to work.

August 09, 2016 – The activity mentioned was to organise a ‘women’s protest’ and playing azadi songs in mosques.

August 11, 2016 – Geelani called for an issuance of a poster letter asking all pro-India politicians and their workers to quit their posts. The poster letter was to be posted on the gates of their homes.

The NIA had registered a case on May 30 against separatist leaders, including members of the Hurriyat, who it said were in connivance with militants from outlawed groups like Hizbul Mujahideen, Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Lashkar-e-Toiba and others for raising and receiving funds to sponsor terror activities and protests in the Kashmir Valley.NIA had registered a case on May 30 against separatist leaders, including members of the Hurriyat, who it said were in connivance with militants from outlawed groups like Hizbul Mujahideen, Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Lashkar-e-Toiba and others for raising and receiving funds to sponsor terror activities and protests in the Kashmir Valley.

Investigators said the funds were received by the separatists through illegal means, including hawala channels, for funding terrorist and other activities in Jammu and Kashmir.
