Aasiya’s re-arrest condemned
Srinagar, Oct 29: Hurriyat Conference (G ) has strongly condemned the re-arrest of Dukhtaran-e-Millat incarcerated chairperson Syeda Aasiya Andrabi, terming it the worst example of “state terrorism”
In a statement today, a spokesman of the Hurriyat said the continued detention of Aasiya, who is suffering from various ailments, was sheer “violation” of law and constitution.
“Since Aasiya is suffering from different ailments, doctors had suggested that she should be admitted to the hospital for specialized treatment. The Court had also directed the government to shift her to SKIMS, Soura, for specialized treatment but the police showed its highhandedness and shifted her back to jail from hospital,” he said.
“Her husband Dr Muhammad Qasim is also serving detention in jail for a very long time. Family of the duo is living in a miserable condition and the educational career of their children has badly been hit by their continued detention,” he said.
‘New Delhi afraid of Aasiya’s release’
Condemning the re-arrest of Dukhtaran-e-Millat chairperson Syeda Aasiya Andrabi, the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front ( R) acting chairman said New Delhi is afraid of her release.
“How can New Delhi be expected to lift AFSPA from Jammu Kashmir when it is afraid of a Kashmiri woman of the stature of Aasiya Andrabi. The government is so afraid of Aasiya’s release that it has repeatedly been slapping PSA on her to let her rot in jails,” said Mir, while addressing a public meeting at the shrine of Sheikh Noor-ud-Din Wali (RH), Chrar-i-Sharief, in district Budgam of Central Kashmir.
Jama’at-i-Islami Jammu Kashmir has strongly condemned the re-arrest of Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief Aasiya Andrabi outside the Central Jail, Srinagar, soon after her release.
“Jama’at-e-Islami demands the release of Aasiya Andrabi and other political detainees without any further delay,” said a spokesman of the Jama’at in a statement on Saturday.
