United Hurriyat stage peaceful protest pays tributes to political prisoners.

As per joint programme of resistance camp, leaders and workers of various resistance groups staged a peaceful protest programme at Hyderpora Srinagar and paid their salute and tributes to political prisoners.

The leaders said that we are dutybound to pursue freedom movement till the goal is achieved.  Addressing the protest demonstration, and terming the treatment meted to detainees, Noor Mohamad Kalwal, Raja Meraj u Din Kalwal and Gh Nabi Zakie said that behaviour of authorise with detainees is unethical and unlawful.

Noor Mohammad Kalwal while denouncing PDP led administration, said that many youths are languishing without any trial & thousands were arrested during their regime and even elderly and minors were arrested. They have surpassed all records and although the infamous safety act has been declared as heartless and callous by international community, still there seems no end and this heartless law continues to haunt the youth of state, said Kalwal.

Raja Meraj u Din in his address while referring to gloomy situation in jails, said that detainees are subjected to vengeance and while referring to Tihar jail, Kalwal said that administration is run by Tamil Nadu Special Police and they have virtually turned it into Guantanamo Bay. The detains are frisked, interrogated, harassed and humiliated by jail authorities.

There is no procedure nor any proper medical facility for detainees, said Kalwal and ailing detainees are not provided with timely and proper treatment nor standard medicine is provided to them.

Referring to the communal mindset of staff, Kalwal said that their behaviour with detainees is heartless and they derive pleasure from their arrogant and callous behaviour while dealing with detainees.

Kalwal said that those lodged in Kathua and Udhampur, face immense hardships as jail staff is creating unnecessary impediments and hurdles while meeting with their family members. The families are harassed even denied their meeting with jail inmates, said Kalwal.

Gh Nabi Zakie while reiterating demand for immediate release of political prisoners, said that we will never forget their contribution & nation stands with them as they are presenting supreme sacrifices for ongoing freedom movement. We will continue our struggle and we will raise our voice till they are their released, said Zakie.

We want to convey these Delhi groomed henchmen that these arbitrary detentions won’t deter us from pursuing our cherished mission and however it will rejuvenate new spirits in our mission, said he.

Denouncing PDP for their rhetoric for ‘battle of ideas’ Zakie said that their parroting is simply a political stunt and they stand exposed. It is their political gimmick, said Zakie and the atrocities inflicted by PDP is unjustified and unethical.

The protestors present while showing their concern for detainees, amidst high pitch sloganeering demanded immediate release of detainees and expressed their sympathy with those lodged in different jails.
