SRINAGAR (Agencies) - The government in Indian Held Kashmir on Monday defended the repeated house arrest orders imposed on a top Kashmiri leader, saying he was responsible for inciting violence. Syed Ali Geelani, who favours Indian Held Kashmirs accession to Pakistan, has been placed under house arrest on numerous occasions over the past year. Whenever Mr. Geelani is allowed to address gathering at any place, it is followed by large-scale stone pelting and attacks on police and paramilitary forces leading to serious law and order problem, the government said in a statement. In future, if any restrictions are put on the movement of Mr. Geelani, he and his actions alone would be responsible for this, it said. Geelani was a prime mover behind a series of large anti-India demonstrations last summer that saw 110 protesters killed in clashes with Indian troops. It was some of the worst civil unrest seen in the regions 20-year revolt history against Indian rule, which has so far claimed more than 47,000 lives. The volatile region remains under tight military control.
