Srinagar: Paying tributes to ‘Shaheed-e-Azemat’, Sheikh Abdul Aziz on his 10th anniversary, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani on Friday said that Aziz was a veteran pro-freedom leader who had dedicated his life for the sacred cause of freedom.
Geelani as per a statement issued here said that he was often incarcerated and spent almost 20 years in different jails and interrogation centers, in and outside state.
