Mirwaiz Yasir got PSA for calling Anantnag ‘Islamabad’
Islamabad, July 28: Asking the shopkeepers to replace word ‘Anantnag’ with ‘Islamabad’ on their sign boards has been provided as one of the detention grounds to book Mirwaiz South Kashmir, Qazi Ahmad Yasir, under Public Safety Act by the Government.
Mirwaiz Yasir was detained after the killing of three teenagers in the town on June 29 allegedly by police and subsequently booked under PSA and is lodged in Kotbalwal Jail, Jammu.
One of the charges levelled against him in the dossier issued by the District Magistrate reads, “You held a meeting in Jamia Masjid Hanfia where among other things you threatened shopkeepers to replace word ‘Anantnag’ with “Islamabad’ on their sign boards and that too be written with green colour, which clearly indicates that you want to disturb the communal harmony in the district.”
Police has registered cases under FIR No. 245/2010
under Section 148, 149, 336, 353 RPC.
It is pertinent here that all Kashmiris call the place by the name of Islamabad.
Yasir has also been charged for raising ‘anti-national’ slogans including ‘Ragda Ragda….’
The other charges include; organizing campaigns on regular basis in Islamabad district aimed at motivating the people to hold demonstrations against the Government, instigating people of the town to pelt stones on the police personnel, troopers, Government offices and public property.
“The participants of the processions under your command injured several police and security personnel and damaged public property,” reads the dossier. It further adds, “On the death anniversary of late Qazi Nisar you lead processions at Dialgam village and pelted stones on shops to enforce shutdown there.”
Leading the violent protests after the killing of three teenagers in the town on June 29 has also been cited as one of the grounds in the detention.
“On June 29, 2010, you instigated the people of the town who under your directions took out a big procession and indulged in loot and arson. They also set ablaze dozens of vehicles and public property in the town. In this connection police has registered case FIR no.s 261/2010 U/S 148, 149, 332, 336, 307, 427, 435 RPC and 262/2010 U/S 148, 149, 336, 427, 435, 436 RPC,” reads the dossier.
He has also been charged of ‘using some hooligans who threaten the public in general and shopkeepers in particular of dire consequences in case they don’t observe hartals in the town.’
