Geelani decries enforcement of purdah

Syed Ali Shah Geelani the senior Kashmiri leader and former Hurriyat Conference chairman has criticized the move of a new separatist organization Lashkar-e-Jabbar to enforce a purdah code in the troubled state. He has also vehemently opposed acid attacks on veil-less women in the Valley.

Syed Ali Shah Geelani said that even though he supports observance of purdah by Muslim women and describes it as a symbol of dignity and self respect, he however said that it needed a system and state to enforce the law of purdah. The fiery Kashmiri leader said at the Hurriyat headquarters in Srinagar that individuals cannot enforce their will or laws. Geelani urged those who were campaigning for the observance of purdah in the Valley to go in for persuasive methods instead of coercion. He added that unless we have a state of Islam, laws related to it cannot be enforced.

Women have been scrambling to get burqa (veils) in the valley since Lashkar-e-Jabbar an unknown organization threw acid on three women teachers early last month for not wearing veils. The group has given a deadline in mid-September to adhere to the Islamic dress code. The issue has been widely covered in the media since the incident took place. Most of the Hurriyat leaders have condemned the move calling it un-Islamic.
