    Hurriyat Conference's Syed Ali Shah Geelani calls for funeral prayers for Osama bin Laden
    India - 6 may 2011

    SRINAGAR: Hardline Hurriyat Conference leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has asked people to hold funeral prayers on Friday for Osama bin Laden, the founder of al-Qaida who was shot dead in Pakistan on May 2 by a US team.

    Geelani has appealed to Imams and people to hold funeral prayers in absentia for bin Laden after Friday prayers tomorrow afternoon, a Hurriyat spokesman said in a statement.

    Terming him a 'martyr', Geelani said bin Laden was not just one person but "he represented a thinking which opposed foreign occupational forces".

    "His heart bore the pain of the entire Muslim Ummah (community). He gave up his life of comfort to fight for their cause," the statement said.

    The separatist leader said he wanted to participate in the funeral prayers but he has been placed under house arrest by the police since early this morning.

    Geelani appealed to people to pray for the liberation of Kashmir, Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan from the occupation of forces.
