Srinagar, Apr 14: Terming the continuous house detention of senior Hurriyat leader and Jammu Kashmir National Front chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan as ‘unwarranted’, the party spokesman on Friday said that resistance leaders like Nayeem Khan can’t be compelled to change their political stance about Kashmir dispute by using such ‘brutal and undemocratic measures’.
The spokesman in a statement issued to KSN said that Khan’s life is compiled of sacrifices and jail has been his second home like other resistance leader.
“India by using its local pro-Indian political parties is trying to suppress the genuine voice of Kashmiri people by arresting and detaining their political leadership. However, New Delhi and the state’s pro-Indian political mainstream parties must understand the fact that such cheap measures hardly matter to the leadership,” he said.
The spokesperson strongly condemned the administration on whose directions a police vehicle has been parked on the gate of Nayeem Khan’s residence to make sure that he does not come out.
He also said that Khan is not being allowed to offer Friday prayers nor he is being allowed to perform his social obligations, which is highly condemnable.
The spokesman said that at a time when the people of Kashmir have vehemently rejected the Indian rule, New Delhi should take practical steps to resolve the long standing Kashmir dispute which involves not only the 1.3 billion people across the bloody line but the population of whole South Asian region.
He termed the recent poll boycott as ‘people’s verdict and writing on the wall for New Delhi and the local pro-Indian parties.
The spokesman said that India has got a befitting reply from Kashmiri people two times in a week and it will get third continuous slap at the hands of south Kashmir people when the election is held there.
Meanwhile, Khan has condoled senior Journalist, Rajesh Prothi on the death of his father and noted broadcaster, Manohar Prothi.
Khan condoled the Prothi family, especially Rajesh and prayed to bear the loss. (KNS)
