Life of other youth precious too, can’t appeal my son to shun militancy: Sehrai

Tehreek-e-Hurriyat chairman Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai said the move to free Geelani needed to be analysed in a broader perspective as “it can be a cosmetic measure”.
Talking to reporters at Geelani’s Hyderpora residence after offering congregational Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid, Hyderpora, Sehrai said the conglomerate would see whether Geelani is really afforded a political space. “There is a difference between freeing a bird in a room and in the air. If it freed within the room, it hits the walls of the room. Can this be called a freedom? The real freedom is when it is set free in the open air,” Sehrai said, when asked how he sees government’s decision to let Geelani offer Friday prayers in a mosque after a long gap.He said policemen in civvies and forces’ vehicles still stand outside Geelani’s residence.
“So we will wait and analyse fully what kind of freedom it is for him (Geelani),” Sehrai said.
About his son’s decision of joining Hizbul Mujahideen outfit, Sehrai said “Junaid Ashraf is young and educated person, fully capable of taking decisions on his own”.
