Dateline Srinagar
Geelani rehabilitated in Hurriyet
By Javed Majtee, Srinagar

Senior Jamat-e-Islami leader Syed Ali Geelani has returned to Hurriyat Conference central executive. This was announced by the Hurriyat Chairman Prof Abdul Gani on April 14, after central executive meet, which was held at the Hurriyat Headquarters. Though the meeting was convened to discuss the issue of centre's invitation extended to Hurriyat, however that issue remained undecisive. Only one matter, which according to Prof Gani was settled during the meeting, was the Geelani controversy. Prof Gani said that the issue was settled and the chapter should be treated as closed, adding that Mr Geelani will now onwards continue to represent Jamat-e-Islami in the Hurriyat's central executive. Earlier the central executive had asked Jamat-e-Islami to replace Mr Geelani by any other representative. Jamat-e-Islami, in its meeting discussed the Hurriyat proposal and rejected it. Mr Geelani had adopted an approach vis--vis ceasefire and Hurriyat's Pak visit, which was contradictory to the stand adopted by Hurriyat. Mr Geelani had also termed Kashmir as a religious issue, giving bent to this idea off and on. Most of other Hurriyat leaders take Kashmir as a political issue and do not agree to Geelani's perceptions. Mr Geelani also publicly criticized some of the Hurriyat leaders at several occasions. Jamat's stand taken in favour of Mr Geelani forced Hurriyat leadership to withdraw its intentions to expel Geelani from the conference's central executive. Though Geelani had some problems with Jamat leadership also, however the senior Jamat leader was fully backed on the Hurriyat front, which finally restored his status in the conference.
