LeT,Jamaat, Dukhtaran, Inquilabi condemn attachment
KHAN SOPORI HOUSE CONFISCATION
Srinagar, July 1: Militant outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and various separatist organizations on Sunday condemned the confiscation of the house of Hurriyat (G) leader Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori at Chanpora.
“We strongly condemn the government action of attaching property of Khan Sopori and others. This is a conspiracy against the separatist leadership,” the spokesperson of LeT Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi told Greater Kashmir over phone.
Quoting operations commander of the outfit Mehmood Shah, Dr Gaznavi said, “Police action is atrocious and is aimed at harassing the Kashmiri leadership. We salute people for remaining firm on their resolve.”
The spokesman of Hurriyat Conference (G) condemned the police action. “Police seizing the house of the ailing leader has proved that New Delhi and the state government want to muzzle the voice of dissent forever. It seems that they have forgotten that Kashmiris have seen many such phases. Despite that people have remained steadfast on their resolve,” the Hurriyat (G) spokesman quoted the chairman of the amalgam Syed Ali Shah Geelani as having said.
Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir strongly condemned the police action of attaching the residential house of Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori and described it as ‘misuse of power’.
“Jama’at strongly demands early release of the attached house in favor of Khan Sopori so that he and his family do not suffer for want of shelter”, said the Jamat spokesperson.
He also condemned the alleged harassment of Kashmiri students in Haryana.
Chief Patron Jammu Kashmir Mahaz-e-Azadi (MeA) Muhammad Azam Inqilabi expressed solidarity with Khan Sopori.
In a statement he condemned the police action. “Through this action it looks government doesn’t want peaceful resistance movement here,” he said.
Sopori, who has spent more than 17 years in jails, said he was punished for being close to Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani.
Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat Asiya Andrabi condemned the confiscation of house of G M Khan Sopori. “These suppressive tactics won’t deter people from taking to streets. The confiscation of veteran leader’s house is a serious matter and Government has adopted Nazi method to coerce leaders like Khan Sopori,” she said.
