Gujjar, Bakerwal Conference demand release of Talib Hussain
Srinagar: Demanding release of social activist and lawyer, Talib Hussain from police lockup, members of Gujjar and Bakerwal Conference Saturday held protest here accusing police of implicating him on fabricated charges.
Shouting slogans “stop cruelty on Jammu Muslims, stop RSS agenda” dozens of the members of Gujjar and Bakerwal community assembled at Press enclave here and staged protest demanding release of Talib Hussain.
The protesters alleged that Hussain was arrested under well thought-out conspiracy by the Sambha police.
“He is an innocent person who was fighting for the rights of downtrodden Gujjar community. If raising voice against injustice is a crime then we admit Talib Hussain is a criminal,” said Mohammad Yasin Poswal a Gujjar leader.
Poswal said Talib was arrested on the directions of right wing RSS with the aim to drain out Muslims from Rassana and other villages.
He said some communal elements with aim to drive out Muslims from Jammu region have been inflicting miseries upon suppressed Muslims on one pretext or the other.
“We want Talib Hussain to be released without delay else twenty five lakh Gujjars from across the state will start agitation,” Poswal added.
He appealed Governor administration and higher-ups of state police to expedite investigations into Talib Husain’s case so the facts come to fore.
