Farewell the humanist and the tireless human rights defender, Prof. SAR Geelani.
It is with great sadness that NCHRO has heard about the death of Prof.SAR Geelani, a tireless activist and brave fighter for human rights.
Geelani will always be remembered for committing his life’s work to improve the lives of others, standing up for justice and integrity.
He fought a good fight for a tolerant, open and just society despite the harassment and torture from the authorities. The trial and tribulations he has undergone only fortified his pursuit of human rights in Kashmir.
We convey our heartfelt condolences to Geelani’s family, friends and colleagues, including in the human rights and civil society.
