JKLF dismayed over TADA court verdict
NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Rawalpindi, Dec 4: The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (PaK and Gilgit Baltistan Zone) has expressed anger over TADA’s court verdict against the Front activists, Nazir Ahmed Sheikh and Showkat Ahmed Khan.
Dr. Tauqeer Gilani, the Zonal chief of JKLF while addressing a news conference here said that on the occasion of World Human Rights Day the JKLF would organize protest demonstrations against the verdict.
Gilani maintained that during recent years courts have awarded life imprisonment sentence to more than two dozen Kashmiri youth languishing in different jails in and outside JK.
“Instead of reciprocating to this transition shown by Kashmiris,” he said, “New Delhi has initiated a new process under which capital punishments were being awarded to Kashmiri youth.”
“On one hand New Delhi keeps on harping about rehabilitation policy regarding Kashmiri youth while on the other hand innocent Kashmiris languishing in jails over the years are being sentenced on the pretext of concocted and baseless cases.”
While urging the world human rights organizations to take cognizance of human rights violations being inflicted on the people of Kashmir, he said that world bodies should come forward in a big way and impress upon New Delhi to revoke sentences awarded to Kashmiri youth.
