Shah in solitary confinement: DFP
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 4: The Hurriyat Conference (M) senior leader and Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) chairman, Shabir Ahmad Shah, has been kept in ‘solitary confinement’ in Kote Balwal Jail, Jammu. “The jail authorities have kept Shah, who is suffering from various ailments, in a lonely room away from other jail inmates,” the DFP’s acting president Moulana Muhammad Abdullah Tari said in a statement.
He accused the government of having no respect for human rights. “Despite doctors advising that Shah sahib should be hospitalized, government has not shown any concern,” Tari said.
“The government is turning a blind eye to the fast changing political scenario at international level. It is adopting a very hostile attitude towards its political adversaries. But this attitude will never break Shah’s sahib’s valour and determination,” Tari said.
He appealed to all the Imams of Masjids to offer special prayers for speedy recovery of Shah and other incarcerated ailing leaders including Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Dr Muhammad Qasim Faktoo, Masrat Alam Bhat and Firdous Ahmad Shah.
Meanwhile, a DFP spokesman expressed solidarity with family of Basharat Saleem who died in Machil sector in frontier district of Kupwara. He condemned the arrest of Umar Zargar and other youth and police ‘harassment’ to their families.
