Nayeem welcomes release of pro-freedom leaders
Srinagar, Aug 25: Welcoming the release of senior pro-freedom leaders along with other detainees, Jammu Kashmir National Front chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan today demanded unconditional release of other political leaders, activists and youth who are languishing in different jails on ‘baseless charges.’
In a statement Nayeem Khan said, “We welcome the release of pro-freedom leaders and others, but it is disturbing that still hundreds of people are behind the bars and baseless cases have been prepared against them”.
“It is also shameful that dozens of pro-freedom people and youth are languishing in jails and police stations even Courts have ordered their release after finding the accusations against them baseless,” Khan added.
Nayeem Khan expressed anger about the ongoing crackdown against youth in every nook and corner of the Valley. He said, “The Government seems determined to destroy the future of our youngsters as the arrest spree is going on without any pause”.
Nayeem Khan also reacted sharply against the shifting of 50 youth to central jail Srinagar saying that it had shaken the conscious of every Kashmiri.
Nayeem appealed to the masses to remember all the martyrs, the people behind bars and their kiths and kins during special prayers on Jumat-ul-Vida and Shab-e-Qadr.
