Asiya booked under PSA again
DM seeks AI intervention
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 13: State Government on Wednesday slapped second consecutive Public Safety Act (PSA) against Dukhtaran-i-Millat chief Asiya Andrabi and lodged her in Kot Balwal jail.
The DM spokesperson, Rifat Fatima said that Asiya had been booked under PSA for the second consecutive time in the past 7-months. “Soon after High Court quashed her detention under PSA the state government booked her again,” she said.
Terming the continuous detention of Andrabi as “political vendetta” Fatima said, “Asiya has been booked for her political stand on Kashmir.”
Fatima alleged that state government was flouting the court orders by detaining Asiya “illegally” on “malafide” grounds.
She urged the Amnesty International to intervene and impress upon New Delhi to release Andrabi. “It is the responsibility of Amnesty International and other international bodies to impress upon India to release Andrabi and put an end to human rights violations in Kashmir,” Rifat said.
She also condemned the ban on Burqa in France. “On one hand these countries claim about giving total freedom to societies and at other they are strangulating the rights of Muslim women,” she added.
