Syed Ali Geelani funeral: PM Imran Khan slams ‘Nazi-inspired’ BJP govt
Statesman Report
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday slammed India for "snatching" the body of Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani — who passed away on Wednesday — and registering cases against his family, calling it another example of New Delhi's "descent into fascism".
Geelani was buried in a tightly controlled pre-dawn ceremony on Thursday morning after Indian authorities allegedly snatched his body from his family and disallowed his burial to be held in accordance with his will.
"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 is just another shameful example of India’s descent into fascism under the Nazi-inspired RSS-BJP (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh-Bharatiya Janata Party) government," the prime minister said.
