Hurriyat G condemns random arrests
Srinagar, April 28: Strongly condemning “unabated arrest and harassment of leaders and activists”, a spokesman of the Hurriyat Conference (G) today said that such methods cannot weaken the will of Hurriyat leadership and activists.
In a statement issued here today, the spokesman said that the arrest of Ashiq Hussain Narchoor, Asif Ahmad Dada and Ashfaq Ahmad Kotwal in Anantnag is unjustified, saying Ashiq Hussain is a political worker and in no way is related to militancy while as the two-detained youth are not connected to any political party, spokesman said.
Strongly decrying the detention of political workers and civilians on one pretext or the other, spokesman said that youth are being caged on fake and fabricated charges just for material gains and promotions and added “slapping PSAs on pro-freedom leaders and activists has always been a tool of the rulers to try and force the people and leadership into submission.”
The spokesman also condemned “harassment and intimidation” of students saying, “despite assurances, there seems no let-up in the intimidation and harassment of Kashmiri students pursuing studies outside Jammu Kashmir.
