People barred from offering prayers: JKLF
Srinagar, July 16: Strongly condemning restrictions on people to offer their Friday prayers today at various Masjids in Valley, the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front vice-chairman advocate Bashir Ahmad Bhat termed it ‘blatant interference’ in the religious affairs of people.
In a statement today, Bhat alleged that the police and CRPF forces continued to attack the peoples’ residential houses, breaking widow panes, beating inmates and ransacking their household belongings. “These armed forces do not even spare the civilians’ vehicles and shops and cause colossal damage to them,” he said, terming these actions as highly condemnable.
Condemning the continued detention of Front chairman Muhammad Yaseen Malik and pro-freedom leaders, Bhat said the government was, out of frustration, trying to keep the leadership away from people to deprive them of their guidance and direction. He said the coercive and repressive steps by the government could not prevent the people from carrying on their struggle for freedom.
Meanwhile, a spokesman of Front claimed its leaders, Ghulam Qadir Haider and Mushtaq Ahmad, led a peaceful protest rally at Bijbehara in south Kashmir.
