‘It is sheer injustice, illustrates the haughtiness of authorities’
Srinagar, Jun 15: Hurriyat Conference (G) condemned authorities for slapping another PSA on Tehreek-e-Hurriyat activists Mohammad Salim War, Gh Rasool Parey, Ab Majid Lone, Farooq Ahmad Najar, Ab Majid Mir, Fayaz Ahmad Ganai, and Meraj u Din Naikoo.
In a statement issued to KNS, Hurriyat (G) said that ailing Mohammad Rustum Bhat was released after a prolonged detention of eleven month, however all other activists though bailed out by court, were slapped with one more Public Safety Act and shifted to Kotbhalwal and Kathua in Jammu.
It is sheer injustice and illustrates the haughtiness of authorities, said Hurriyat and added that cases against dozens of youth are filed under this infamous law and shifted to different jails in far-flung areas of Jammu.
Hurriyat Conference (G) said that Tehreek-e-Hurriyat is the prime target for authorities and almost two hundred THK activists are detained in different jails.
Hurriyat (G) denounced arrogance of authorities and said soon as these prisoners are bailed out, the authorities slap another PSA on them thus prolong their detention period.
Blaming authorities for trampling all rules and regulations, Hurriyat (G) said that those bailed out by judiciary, were detained again, slapped with one more PSA & shifted to different jails.
Day’s before slapping PSA on them, these prisoners were lodged in police stations and their families were expecting their release, however authorities hurriedly slapped PSA and detained them again, Hurriyat (G) said.
Criticizing district authorities in Baramulla, Hurriyat said that they surpassed all records and during peoples uprising in 2016, the district authorities attested dossiers without applying mind and added that they least care about the possible repercussions of their insensitive approach and added that it has multiplied the agonies for their families too.
They are simply rubber stamps, said Hurriyat (G) while lashing at district authorities and said that these authorities follow police higher ups with their eyes folded.
Detainees are subjected to vengeance, said Hurriyat and despite sufficient accommodation in local jails, the detainees are shifted to outside state jails.
They even ignore the ruling of the Supreme court regarding prisoners wherein it has clearly directed state authorities to lodge detainees adjacent to their home cities.
Hurriyat Conference (G) strongly criticized police for intimidating and terrorizing Dawood Ahmad Phuley son of detained THK activist Javed Ahmad Phuley and said that police action is quite unjustified and termed it inhuman & heartless act.
Hurriyat (G) while criticizing authorities for shifting prisoners outside state, said that it is sheer bullying and added that instead of releasing detinues, were shifted to outside valley.
Criticizing strongly authorities for their callous approach, Hurriyat Conference (G) said that It is extreme state sponsored terrorism and added that their tall claims and rhetoric about humanity and democracy are mere hoax. Hurriyat (G) said that authorities have no regard for these and are trampling all norms.
Reiterating its demand for release of all detainees before Eid, Hurriyat expressed satisfaction over the release of its leaders including Mohmmad Rustum Bhat, Bashir Ahmad Qureshi and Mohammad Amin Parey.
Hurriyat Conference (G) appealed to the international agencies and human rights organizations to use their influence to check lawlessness, violations of court orders in state & for release of detainees. Hurriyat (G) urged to “take cognizance of unabated arrests, re-arresting of detainees in state. (KNS)
