Geelani condemns burning of minority school; appeals for peace

"Geelani strongly condemns the burning of a private school at Tangmarg. It is our religious duty to safeguard the property and life of the minorities," Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar told PTI.
A private high school was set ablaze by a mob at Tangmarg, 45 kms from here, protesting the alleged sacrilege of a holy book in United States.

"Control your sentiments ... the misdeed of a person should not be made an excuse to target any minority community," the spokesman quoted Geelani as saying.
The hard line Hurriyat Chairman cautioned people against attacking the properties of the minority community saying "it will only harm our movement".
