Srinagar, Oct 30: Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has said that its incarcerated chief Shabir Shah is representing the political sentiments of majority population of the State hence continuously jailing him is like putting the whole population behind bars. The party pledged to take forward the political agenda of Shabir Shah and work tirelessly to raise the people’s voice as and when required.
In a statement issued to KNS, JKDFP Spokesperson said that Shabir Shah is scripting a new history of resistance by not succumbing to the hardships of Tihar jail despite being ill.
Shabir Shah has advocated a policy of reconciliation throughout his career and he has been strongly supporting right to self determination for the people of Jammu Kashmir. That is why he has been made to suffer a lot throughout his life by spending 31 years in different jails and interrogation centres so far. But Shabir Shah never gave up his just political stance on Kashmir dispute.
Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party pledges to take the mission of its incarcerated chief forward till the goal is achieved. Every party office bearer and worker is strongly holding the principles of Shabir Shah so that people of Jammu Kashmir can get their acknowledged right and decide their political future.
The JKDFP Spokesperson said that Indian authorities have failed to prove anything against Shabir Shah in last more than 14 months still they are hesitant in setting him free. The so called charge sheet against Shabir Shah also could not be proved in the court proving all accusations against him as wrong and manufactured.
The Spokesperson said that those Kashmiris languishing in different jails of the State and outside are going through tough times as these political prisoners have to tolerate harsh weather conditions and rude behaviour of the jail authorities.
The Kashmiri prisoners are not being provided proper medical aid despite the fact that majority of them are suffering from serious ailments and they are not even produced before courts in time hence prolonging their incarcerations.
The Spokesperson stressed upon the international forums dealing with prisoners to shun their policy of silence over the Kashmiri political prisoners.
