The amalgam chairman was informed that he cannot leave till further orders since he has been again put under house arrest. The move by the authorities came following strike called by Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), consisting separatist leaders Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Moulvi Omar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik on Saturday against civilian killings in the Valley.''Taking to micro-blogging site twitter, the Mirwaiz wrote, ''I have just been placed under #HouseArrest again.'' The Mirwaiz further wrote, ''Space for resistance stands completely choked. The leadership is constantly under house arrest or in jails to prevent them from reaching out.The government considers even simple meetings and indoor seminars as a threat.Even religious gatherings are constantly prohibited!''
