Hurryiat spokesman has strongly condemned the house arrest of Mirwaiz
Srinagar, Mar 27: APHC Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who has been put under house arrest for the past more than two weeks paid rich tributes to the two Pulwama youths, Shafi Ahmad and Farooq Ahmad, who were martyred on Sunday during a gunfight with government forces in Padgampora Awantipora.
Mirwaiz said that it greatly pains that our youth who are the future of our nation should sacrifice their life when they should have been living out their dreams of a bright and prosperous future. But severe oppression and occupation of their nation unfortunately forces many among them to choose the path of armed struggle, for the liberation of their motherland. Mirwaiz said Govt of India should give up its obduracy and admit that the political aspirations of the people of Kashmir have to be taken cognizance of and respected and supression and subjugation as a policy cannot be continued forever.
APHC Chairman said day and night wide spread arrest and detention of civilians activists and workers from across the valley by the state forces house arrest of resistance leaders and barring people from visiting them ,harrasing people by nocturnal raids ,frisking and checkings and other inconvenience caused in order to conduct the drama of elections is not only deplorable but ridiculous and a cruel joke upon the people who are already contineously at the receiving end of ‘so called democratic rule’ .
Meanwhile, Hurryiat spokesman has strongly condemned the house arrest of Mirwaiz He said by imposing restrictions on Mirwaiz, the fake claims of democracy get exposed.
The spokesman also denounced the arrest and house arrest of resistance leadership including Syed Ali Geelani, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Advocate Shahid-ul-Islam, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza and others. He said by arresting them, the government was just exhibiting that Kashmir was under the rule of tyranny.
