Geelani's granddaughter gets engaged
Made in Turkey affair!
1/23/2021 11:43:26 PM

JAMMU, Jan 23: Senior separatist leader, Syed Ali Shah Geelani's, granddaughter, who has been living in Turkey for the last few years, has got engaged to a Kashmiri man, who also has been doing the rounds of the same country.
Sources said even though the engagement took place in Kashmir recently, the couple knew each other for long as the two would generally meet in Turkey. The sources said the "love affair from Turkey cannot be ruled out."
Sources said the man, whom Geelani's granddaughter got engaged to, is a businessman-turned-journalist.
Sources said the engagement took place in the summer capital of Srinagar as both of them had come to Kashmir to visit their respective families.
Sources said the engagement took place as a private affair where no outsiders were invited, barring some close relatives and friends.
It was reliably learnt that the marriage may not be held this year for some "personal reasons" of both the families.
Geelani's granddaughter has been writing propaganda about the "Kashmir issue" mostly from Turkey and is likely to go back to the Middle East in the coming days.
Ironically, though Geelani has long been asking people of Kashmir not to send their daughters outside for studies, his own granddaughter has been studying abroad. "Prior to getting settled in Turkey, she as was in America… This family has sermons for the common people while they themselves enjoy the best of the life abroad," said one insider close to the Hurriyat Conference.
Interestingly, the brother of the would be bride, was given a government job through backdoor by the Peoples Democracy Party -Bharatiya Janta Party led government in 2016 and has been working for the government of Jammu and Kashmir since.
As per media reports, he was given the job as a part of a "deal to restore normalcy in Kashmir" after the violence that year in the wake of the killing of Hizb commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani.
Her father has been in detention since 2017 in connection with the terror financing case.
Despite repeated attempts, the families couldn't be contacted for comments.
But a source in the Hurriyat Conference confirmed about the engagement.
