Prime Minister Imran Khan in a strongly-worded tweet on Sunday condemned India’s repressive measures for snatching the body of the 92-year-old Syed Ali Geelani, one of the most respected and principled Kashmiri leaders and then registering cases against his family, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Imran Khan said that these incidents were just another shameful example of India’s descent into fascism under the Nazi-inspired RSS-BJP government.

Pakistan flag was half-mast on the demise of pro-Pakistan Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, who spent his life in resisting the Indian Occupied forces in the Held Valley. Pakistan social media platform flooded with Geelani’s spirited speech in which he chanted ‘Hum Pakistani hain, Pakistan hamara hay’ (We are Paksitani and Pakistan is ours). 

Earlier Pakistan Foreign Office summoned Indian top diplomat in-country and lodged its protest in strongest possible way for snatching the dead body of Syed Geelani in the dead of the night allowing only a few people in his funeral prayers. The Indian Army in Valley, known for his gross human rights violations, clampdown internet services and cordoned off the road leading toward the residence of a resistance leader in Haider Pura. 

According to international media, J&K Police on Saturday lodged an FIR against the family members of deceased Syed Ali Shah Geelani and others for raising anti-national slogans and putting the Pakistani flag on his body.
