Veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has called for peaceful protest demonstrations after Friday prayers on Friday, against the detention of Hurriyet leaders and activists.

In a statement, he expressed serious concern over the inhuman treatment meted out to the Kashmiri detainees, particularly those languishing in Delhi's Tihar jail.

Religious scholars have expressed full confidence in the forum led by Syed Ali Gilani and have appealed to the people to strengthen it to carry forward the ongoing freedom movement.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the appeal was made by religious scholars during a meeting organized by Tehreek-e-Wahdat-e-Islami in Badgam. Besides Tehreek-e-Wahdat Chief, Nisar Hussain Rather, Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem, other religious scholars, heads of religious and political parties and intellectuals who attended the meeting included Ghulam Ali Gulzar, Maulana Hakeem Sajjad, Syed Anees Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, Maulana Shaukat Madni, and Syed Yasoob. 

Meanwhile, a peaceful protest demonstration led by Kashmir Tehreek-e-Khawateen Chairperson Zamruda Habib was held in Srinagar on Thursday, against the illegal detention of Hurriyet leaders and activists.

Indian police also arrested the Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League acting General Secretary, Abdul Ahad Parra, outside Baramulla sub-jail when he went to meet illegally detained youth.

Addressing mourners on the occasion, the Hurriyet leaders said that the Kashmiri martyrs' sacrifices, which had centre-staged the Kashmir dispute at the global level, would not be allowed to go waste and their mission would be accomplished at all costs.
