Srinagar, Oct 25: The family members of Hizb Chief Syed Salahuddin Wednesday while reacting over the arrest of Shahid Yousuf by NIA said that this is the age old tactic by the Delhi government to harass the family and to defame their family head.
“This is an attempt to pressurize our father into submission by Delhi. We are peace loving people and want the issue to be settled through meaningful dialogue. We further want to state that we have never been involved in any terror funding activities in the state, and our record during past 28 years is crystal clear and can be verified by the police and CID,” the family members told news agency CNS through a written statement.
“Our brother Shahid Yousuf is a peaceful citizen, and NIA has incriminated him in absolutely fake charges of terror funding to pressurize our father. Our right to live peacefully is being snatched by State and Central Government,” said the family. (CNS)
