RAWALPINDI: On the sad demise of Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Geelani, COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa has expressed heartfelt condolences on Thursday. The COAS in a statement stated that Geelani’s lifelong oblation and constant struggle shows the invulnerable resolve of Kashmiris against Indian occupation.
