Veeri is vice president of Jamiat e Ahl e Hadith Jammu and Kashmir.

Jama’at spokesman advocate Zahid Ali is also lodged in the high security prison in Jammu while its chief is lodged in Central Jail Srinagar.
Almost 250 Jama’at members have been detained since it was declared an ‘unlawfull organisation’ for five years.
