EU team snubs Geelani; cancels meet

By The Assam Tribune

SRINAGAR, May 15 (PTI): In an apparent fall out of holding funeral prayers for Osama bin Laden, an European Union delegation snubbed hard line Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani by cancelling a scheduled meeting.

"A meeting was initially planned for the May 14 with Syed Ali Shah Geelani, but given the latest events, the EU delegation considers it inopportune to hold the meeting," a statement from the delegation said.

Although the EU delegation, which has met a cross section of leaders during their four day stay in Kashmir, did not given any reason for the cancellation of the meeting, it is widely believed that the funeral prayers held by Geelani on May 6 for bin Laden had put off the plans of the visitors.

It also called off a meeting with members of the Kashmir Bar Association.
