Ashraf Sehrai Replaces Geelani As Tehreek-E-Hurriyat Chairman

A spokesperson said that "the Tehrik-e-Hurriyat led by Syed Ali Geelani today held a meeting at its office in Srinagar and elected senior member Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai as the party chairman".

The TeH spokesman said after Geelani's resignation, it was unanimously decided by the participants to appoint Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai as interim chairman till fresh elections are held later this year.

Geelani, 88, had served as the chairman of the party for 18 years.

Sehrai is a lifelong friend and comrade of Geelani.

Interestingly, in November 2015, Geelani was elected as lifetime chairman of the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat which came into existence in September 2003 after the first major split in the pro-freedom camp.

The NIA had arrested Altaf Ahmad Shah alias Altaf Fantoosh, the son-in-law of firebrand separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani, among others in connection with alleged funding of terrorist and secessionist activities. Geelani has resigned citing health concerns, claims Hurriyat sources. In October 2013 he was re-elected as chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G), a faction of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference. Tehreek-e-Hurriyat is a separatist organisation of Jammu and Kashmir founded on August 7, 2014.
