Geelani terms Hussain’s incarceration as ‘gruesome act of political vendetta’
Srinagar, May 18: All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani in a press release condemned, what he termed, the gruesome act of political vendetta in which Javed Hussain “an innocent resident of Dachan Kishtwar has been incarcerated by the police authorities on the pretext that his son has joined militant rank and files in Kishtwar”.
Terming the police action as a mark of injustice, Hurriyat chairman in a statement said that father and son cannot be punished in lieu of each other for having different ideologies. He also strongly condemned the summoning of his two daughters by NIA to its Delhi Office and the frequent raids of the armed forces at odd times and without having any legal or moral justification.
“Hurriyat chairman urged the international human rights organizations to take cognizance of the plight of the innocent families at the hands of Indian occupation forces,” reads the statement.
