Syed Ali Shah Geelani



*           Syed Ali Shah Geelani (29 September 1929 – 1 September 2021) was a separatist leader in Jammu and Kashmir. *           Started as a teacher but probably led to maximum disruption of education in Kashmir. *           He was previously a member of Jamaat-e-Islami Kashmir but thrown out and later on founded Tehreek-e-Hurriyat. He served as the chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, a conglomerate of pro separatist parties in Jammu and Kashmir. *           He was an MLA from the Sopore constituency of Jammu and Kashmir in 1972, 1977 and in 1987. The then turned views on elections and became a confirmed Pakistani supporter. *           He somehow managed to remain in good books of Indian state which ensured his security and provided platforms to air his views.

*           He was among the principal instigators and men in control who ensured demographic change by forcing migration of Kashmiri Pandits. He never acknowledged his mistake. He further played the demographic change card in 2008 in Amarnath Board land issue by doing propaganda about efforts for demographic change by allotment of land for transient facilities. He was consistent in his communal views.

*           He was chairman of Geelani faction till he quit the Hurriyat in June 2020.  The resignation signified realisation on part of Geelani that how empty and corrupt the so-called movement for liberation of Kashmir was and how Pakistan had used him to further its agenda.
