Condemns prolonged detention of party leaders
Srinagar, May 24: Chairman JKLF Muhammad Yasin Malik has strongly condemned the prolonged incarceration of party’s deputy chief organizer Siraj ud din Mir and district president Baramulla Abdul Rashid Magloo who are languishing at Kot Bhalwal jail under PSA.
He also expressed serious concern over the deteriorating heath of another JKLF leader Sheikh Nazir Ahmad who is serving a life sentence at Kot Bhalwal jail.
“Police arrested Siraj ud din Mir in a nocturnal raid on his residence at Karhama Tangmarg on 2 April 2018 while as Abdul Rashid Magloo was arrested from his residence on 29 March 2018. Both were slapped with PSA for participating in funeral prayers of a martyr,” a statement issued to GNS said.
JKLF chairman said the 70-year-old political leader Siraj ud Din Mir is suffering from various ailments. He said Abdul Rashid Magloo who met with an accident recently is taking various medicines.
Malik said both are being penalized for their political belief.
“The way police are oppressing political activists and are pushing Kashmiris to the wall is ridiculous,” he said.
Meanwhile, Malik has expressed heartfelt grief over the demise of a renowned social activist of Doda Saidullah Wani who breathed his last in Jammu.
“A symbol of sacrifice and resilience, Jenab Saidullah Wani sahib sacrificed his three sons and a daughter who embraced martyrdom in an Indian military operation, first of its kind in Jammu region, in December 1990,” JKLF chairman said and paid rich tributes to him. (GNS)
