Barkati’s prolonged incarceration condemnable: Yasin Malik
Srinagar: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik has strongly condemned the prolonged incarceration of Moulana Sarjan Barkati who is languishing in jail from 2016.
Moulana Barkati has been charged under many sections and dozens of cases have been lodged against him and courts have acquitted him of all the charges but he still continues to languish in jail, Malik said.
JKLF chairman said that a person who is the only bread earner of a big family has been kept in jails from last two years and his family is suffering because of this apathy. Recently on court orders he was released from central jail Srinagar but was re-arrested from jail premises by CIK and from last three days his whereabouts are unknown. Three days back he was released by Shopian court but soon after his release, he was again arrested.
JKLF chairman appealed ICRC to look into this matter and ensure Moulana Sarjan Barkati’s release.
“Malik paid tributes to Bashir Ahmad Dar @ Salim Malik, Mohammad Maqbool Dar, Maulana Abdul Gani of Beerwah, Ghulam Mohammad and Abdul Aziz on their martyrdom day,” a JKLF spokesman said in a statement issued here.
