Has Pakistan Reprimanded Syed Ali Shah Geelani For Inappropriate Remarks on China?

Is Pakistan upset with Syed Ali Shah Geelani for his remarks on the condition of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang province of China?  Geelani’s remarks may not have gone down well Pakistan — a country that many experts believe controls the separatist organisations in Jammu and Kashmir.  Geelani in his statement said: China was “not behaving well” with Uighur Muslims and that they had been forced into camps forcibly.

“Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s remarks can be a potential cause of concern for China. While many Islamic nations countries, including Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, have supported China on the issue of Uighur Muslims, Geelani, however, took a hard stand against China,” according to reports in Zee News.

The separatists in Kashmir, as experts have suggested, are remote-controlled by Pakistan for anti-India activities mainly in the volatile Kashmir Valley. While China has always been mum on overt Pakistani support to separatists, Geelani’s comments on Uighur Muslims will certainly draw angry reactions from Beijing. Experts talking to EurAsian Times states that it is a chain reaction – China will rebuke Pakistan and Islamabad will reprimand the old-horse – Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
