JK run by Home Minister: Bar
‘Despite arrests we will continue to plead cases of detainees’
Srinagar, July 10: The High Court Bar Association (HCBA) on Saturday said the Union Home Minister was running Jammu and Kashmir from New Delhi.
“Home Minister is handling the JK administration from New Delh. All decisions of Omar Abdullah government are being taken by the P Chidmabaram,” the General Secretary HCBA G N Shaheen said after the meeting of Bar’s Executive Council.
“Force, arrests, suppression won’t break our resolve. We will continue to seek resolution of Kashmir dispute and will continue to plead cases of detainees,” Shaheen said.
The Executive Committee meeting chaired by the Bar vice-president, Ejaz Bedar, demanded release of the Bar president Mian Abdul Qayoom forthwith.
Qayoom was arrested from his Barzulla residence on the night of July 6. Bar expressed solidarity with all those people who have bee taken into custody in the recent days.
He said the meeting has taken number of decisions and it would make them public on Monday.
He said Bar believed that Kashmir was a political dispute and it deserved to be resolved through peaceful means. The Bar rejected the statements that Kashmir is an internal security problem. The Bar said the continuous curfew had resulted in humanitarian problems. “There is shortage of food, medicine and baby food,” he said.
