Release female student or face protest: Geelani
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 18: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani has threatened massive peaceful protest demonstration on Friday in Sopore town, if government failed to release the arrested female student, Qurat-ul-Ain immediately.
“Omar Abdullah government has beaten all the records of Nazis’ atrocities. It is playing a dangerous game of impeding the release of Kashmiri detainees despite clear court orders. This government is itself violating the court orders and playing with the life of the detainees whose health has deteriorated to an alarming extent,” Geelani said in a statement.
Geelani expressed serious concern over the continued detention and falling health of Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Asiya Andrabi, Gen Musa, Raja Meraj-ud-Din, Mir Hafiz Ullah, Peer Saif Ullah, Muhammad Yaseen Atayee, Farooq Gottapuri and Muhammad Rafiq Ganai.
He also expressed serious concern over the arrest of Amir-e-Hamza.
“I visited the SKIMS, Soura, where I met Asiya Andrabi and enquired about her health. I found her in an extremely deteriorated health condition. It speaks volumes of the callousness of the state government that an old and ailing woman continues to be languishing in jail under PSA despite the court having quashed her detention order,” he said.
The government, he said, was trying to implicate her in false cases to prolong her detention.
The Dukhtaran-e-Millat acting chief Rifa’at Fatima has strongly condemned the arrest of a Qurat-ul-Ain.
“Now the police and other agencies brazenly arrest people and implicate them in any case they like without having any consideration of their age and gender. Minors, old and women are arrested and booked under PSA,” said Rifa’at in a statement.
“Asiya Andrabi continues to be under detention despite the court having quashed her detention orders twice. She was denied medical aid in jail as result of which her health has considerably broken down.”
JKLF(R) LEADERS CONDEMN ARREST
Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (R) Chairman Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bita Karatey and senior vice-chairman Javed Ahmad Mir on Monday strongly condemned the arrest of, Qurat-ul-Ain, at Sopore in north Kashmir.
“On the one hand efforts are on to hold talks to improve Indo-Pak relations and ease tension and, on the other, innocent Kashmiri girls are arrested and lodged in interrogation centres,” the JKLF ( R ) leaders said in a statement.
They urged Muftis and Ulema to raise their voice against the state’s policy.
