“Happy to c @MirwaizKashmir back in Srinagar. A gruelling ordeal for someone as gentle as the Mirwaiz Umar Sahib. Irrespective of political differences he is a religious head and a uniting force for Muslims in Kashmir. I hope Delhi understands the reverence that he commands. (sic),” Lone said on Twitter.
Before taking plunge into electoral politics, Lone’s Peoples Conference was a constituent of Hurriyat (M).
On Thursday, Hurriyat (M) chairman and Kashmir’s chief cleric Miwaiz Umar Farooq returned to Srinagar after spending three days at the NIA headquarters in New Delhi.
Mirwaiz was summoned to New Delhi in a case related to alleged funding of militants and separatist groups.
