In the evening, Geelani was taken to a private Hospital situated in Gurgaon where a prior appointment with a renowned chest specialist Dr. Vikram Sarabhai had already been taken.

Hurriyat said that Geelani battles multiple ailments with severe chest infection, “so doctors have advised many important medical investigations which will be conducted there.”

Dr. Sameer Koul has also been consulted, who is also a routine doctor of Hurriyat (G) chairman.

According to the spokesman, when Geelani was about to leave for Airport, hundreds of people assembled at Hyderpora to sendoff their leader with “wet eyes and Geelani Sahab thanked them by waving his hand.”

“People there raised slogans in favour of Freedom and Islam,” he added.

A prayer meeting was immediately held at Hyderpora head office after the Geelani left for airport which was presided by Hurriyat General Secretary Gh. Nabi Sumji and in which many executive members of Hurriyat participated. At the end of the meeting, Sumji said that the Geelani is a unique and daring leader who doesn’t have any substitute and the affectionate attachment that people have shown with respect to his health, “is very encouraging and
which proves that the nation is alive and had not forgotten the sacred cause.”

The executive body also praised the stand adopted by Geelani with respect to the state government’s offer of providing him a chopper and said: “Geelani Sahab is a unique character who has always given the preference to the cause over his personality and he will never compromise over these issues.”
