Srinagar April 20: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Friday hit out at the authorities for their attitude towards the resistance leadership, saying the state is virtually reeling under the martial law like situation.
Hurriyat (G) in a statement issued to GNS said, “No law exists, and fundamental rights have been trampled and leadership continue to be caged.”
The amalgam strongly condemned the government’s action of caging the pro-freedom leaders and turning entire state into a military garrison. “The repeated curbs reflect the frustration of the rulers who have accepted defeat at the hands of people’s resilience” it said.
Hurriyat (G) added that “police on Thursday night detained Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai, Aga Syed Hassan al-Mosvi, Gh Ahmad Gulzar, Mohammad Ashraf Laya, Omer Adil Dar, Syed Imtiyaz Hyder and scores of other activists and placed under house arrest”.
Denouncing police action, Hurriyat (G) termed it “dictatorial”. “Despite their rhetoric for freedom of expression, they have turned the state into a big jail and strangulating the genuine voices and people and resistance leaders are denied the political space,” it said.
The amalgam while criticising state authorities said that they instead of facing resistance leaders on political turf are creating a graveyard silence.
“All repressive and suppressive measures perpetrated by authorities won’t break our resolve and despite all odds will pursue freedom mission till its logical conclusion,” Hurriyat (G) said. (GNS)
