There is concern in Kashmir about the deteriorating health of 89-year-old independence leader Syed Ali Geelani. Those outside Kashmir may not be so familiar with this extraordinary figure since he was permanently banned from FB in July 2016 for posting a tribute to the young militant killed by the Indian occupying army. That young militant’s name & image cannot be posted on FB without suspension although his funeral prayers were attended by several shifts of over 600,000 people.

Supporters of the Kashmiri freedom struggle are asked to keep Syed Ali Geelani in your thoughts & prayers.
