Geelani accused chief minister Omer Abdullah of 'being only concerned with his chair and not caring about the negative effects of this decision in haste'. Clashes erupted in many parts of Kashmir after the Friday congregational prayers over the government's decision to allow a pilgrimage to Kausarnag- a glacial lake in southern parts of the valley.
