It’s revenge: Salah-ud-Din
Govt surviving on PSA: Hashim
Srinagar, Mar 5: The United Jihad Council chairman and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen chief Syed Salah-ud-Din on Saturday strongly condemned the invocation of PSA against the incarcerated president of Bar Association Mian Abdul Qayoom for the third time, terming it an open manifestation of ‘injustice and revenge policy’.
“By pursuing such tyrannical policies, the rulers can’t deprive the Kashmiri people of the real and acknowledged leadership,” said Salah-ud-Din, according to a statement issued on Saturday by the UJC spokesman Syed Sadaqat Hussain from Pakistan administered Kashmir.
Salah-ud-Din has urged the international human rights organizations, Amnesty International and World Red Cross to take cognizance of the miserable plight of the political detainees in jails and fulfill their responsibilities accordingly.
Condemning the continued detention of Advocate Mian Abdul Qayoom, Advocate Ghulam Nabi Shaheen and a number of other political leaders and activists under PSA, the Democratic Liberation Party chairman Hashim Qureshi on Saturday termed it a conspiracy to disrupt peace in Kashmir.
In a statement today, Hashim alleged that the indiscriminate arrest of innocent youth especially students had become the biggest sources of corruption in Kashmir. “Parents of the arrested youth are forced to pay money as bribe to police to seek the release of their sons,” he said.
Hashim alleged that the ‘draconian laws’ in vogue in the state provided a buttress to the present Government in Jammu and Kashmir. “The present government can’t survive for a week without the support of draconian laws like PSA, AFSPA and Disturbed Area Act,” he said.
