HURRIYAT LEADERS’ DETENTION ASSAULT ON DEMOCRACY: BHIM
Jammu, May 21: National Panthers Party (NPP) chairman Prof. Bhim Singh today criticized the state government for allegedly suppressing the democratic rights of the people by locking up the opposition leaders, using draconian PSA against political workers and showering bullets on the peacefully protesting children.
The NPP Chief condemned the house arrest of Mirwaiz Moulvi Umar Farooq who was to pay tributes to his late father Maulana Muhammad Farooq on his death anniversary.
“Mirwaiz Maulana Muhammad Farooq was assassinated on May 21, 1990 at his residence where as late Khawaja Abdul Gani Lone, Chairman of People Conference was assassinated on the same day in 2002”, Singh said in a press conference, adding that the friends, supporters and well-wishers of these two distinguished Kashmiri leaders had planned to pay tributes to them.
The government action in putting the Kashmiri leaders including Maulvi Umar Farooq, Syed Ali Shah Geelani under house arrest and imposing restrictions throughout the Valley “amounted to a great assault on democracy and rule of law showing that the present Omar government standing on the crutches of the Congress has lost the confidence of the people and therefore it has no right to govern,” he added.
