Srinagar, Jan 08: Expressing grave resentment and condemnation over the continuous house detention of APHC chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the APHC spokesman termed the government’s decision to keep Mirwaiz forcibly confined to his house as a policy of political revenge and harassment
The spokesman said that the shameful and dictatorial decision of the ruling regime of caging the Mirwaiz for long periods of time ,now and then ,is the acceptance of their defeat of facing him on a political turf and hence they are resorting to illegal means of force and military might against him.
The spokesman said the frequent house detention of Mirwaiz is also aimed at building pressure on the APHC chairman to stop him from representing the aspirations of the occupied people of Kashmir and raising his voice against oppression perpetuated upon them.
The spokesman said that it’s the height of hypocrisy that on one hand the subservient partner of the authoritarian ruling regime ,the PDP sermonises and uses sugar coated terms of “dialogue” “reconciliation” and “mutual trust building among stakeholders” for the resolution of Kashmir dispute and on the other hand it deals with an iron fist caging banning barring and gagging every voice of dissent and disagreement, unleashing unprecedented oppression in the form of unabated human rights violations, killings of innocents, maiming and blinding civilians incarceration torture and all kinds of atrocities to inflict pain to the people of Kashmir .while such a situation festers on ground and resistance leadership continues to remain caged in their own homes or jails, a drama is being enacted to create confusion and to divert the attention from the deteriorating ground situation in Kashmir by talking about such looking good things like dialogue , which in reality have lost their meaning for the people.
APHC spokesman said people of Kashmir are wise enough to see through these gimmicks and won’t allow any conspiracy aimed at changing the basic discourse of Kashmir dispute to succeed .
Meanwhile, APHC chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq expressed his heart felt condolence on the demise of sister of Shaheed-e-Azmat Sheikh Abdul Aziz. Mirwaiz expressed sympathy with the bereaved family and prayed for the highest place in janah for the departed soul.
