Javid Mir , Shabir Shah held
Srinagar, Apr 13: The chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (H) Javid Ahmad Mir was on Friday arrested at Islamabad (Anantnag) in south Kashmir where he was scheduled to address a public meeting.
Meanwhile, Mir has accused the New Delhi of usurping the state’s natural resources including water and forests besides the rights of its people. “Not only this, New Delhi has been thrusting the officers of others states in the civil secretariat to gain control in civil administer,” he said in a statement today, adding that “Prior to 1947, the British rulers in India used the same weapons against the pro-freedom leadership and people.”
Referring to the Home Minister of India P Chidambaram’s recent announcement on the amendment to AFSPA and interlocutors’ report, Mir said he (Chidambaram) had already thrown these matters into the dustbin. He alleged that New Delhi had already empowered its eight lakhs armed forces by using AFSPA.
Terming the Indo-Pak talks as a routine matter, Mir said talks on Kashmir issue without involvement of Kashmiris would not yield any result.
Meanwhile, senior separatist leader and president Democratic Freedom Party Shabir Ahmad Shah was taken into custody on Friday at Mirgund.
Shah was on way to Bomie Sopore where he was scheduled to address a public gathering after Friday prayers. “Shah staged a sit-in on Srinagar- Muzaffarabad road after he was taken into custody,” the spokesperson of DFP said in a statement. The DFP spokesman condemned Shah’s arrest.
