Hurriyat (G) condemns slapping of another PSA against Sumjhi
Srinagar, Aug 20: Hurriyat Conference (G) has strongly condemned the slapping of another Public Safety Act (PSA) against its incarcerated General Secretary Haji Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, terming it height of ‘lawlessness’.
“Hurriyat will not remain silent and will raise its voice against such injustices,” a Hurriyat (G) spokesman said in a statement today.
He said slapping of PSA on Sumjhi was a glaring proof of the fact that ‘the rulers had no regard for holy month of Ramadan’.
“Sumjhi has been lodged in different jails for the last several years from time to time during which he suffered from different ailments. Due to non-availability of proper medical facilities in jails his health has deteriorated a lot. His daughter is also suffering from a fatal disease and is confined to bed for a long time now. Since 2008, he has been slapped PSA for five times and each time the court rejected the charges against him as baseless and issued orders for his release. But each time police violated the court orders,” said the spokesman.
He threatened strong protests after Eid-ul-Fitr if Government failed to release all the detainees before Eid.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat is organizing a Nazool-i-Quran Conference on August 25, at Hyderpora. Besides others, Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani is also scheduled to speak on the occasion, he added.
