Budgam, Nov 22: Senior Hurriyat leader and president Anjuman Shari Shian Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi has expressed serious concern over the deteriorating health condition of senior resistance leader Shabir Ahmad Shah in Tihar Jail, saying that “He is suffering from multiple ailments, however, he is not being provided specific treatment.

   He also expressed anguish over the plight of Kashmir political prisoners languishing in Jammu Kashmir and outside jails.

     “The incarcerated leader is being subjected to political vendetta,” Aga Hasan said in a statement.

    Criticising the government, he said the ill-treatment is being meted out to the political prisoners and are lodged with hardened criminals.

   He said  the detainees were not criminals but political prisoners who were being subject to detention for their political convictions and outlook and dealing with them “inhumanly is not only a violation of the Geneva conventions of the rights and dignity of prisoners but even against basic human practices and ethics.”

   He said that even visitors and relatives who come to see them in jail are also deliberately harassed and tormented by the authorities. All this is done in complete violation of the jail manual which lays emphasis on the honor and dignity of prisoners. (CNS)
