AAC observes Youm-e-Aseeran
‘Kashmiri detainees denied medical aid in jails’
Srinagar, Oct 10: Jammu and Kashmir Awami Action Committee Wednesday observed Youm-e-Aseeran to mark observance of October 10, 1965, at its headquarters at Mirwaiz Manzil here.
The function was chaired by AAC chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
Mirwaiz threw light on the importance of October 10. He said the “Kashmiri voice of demanding rights and justice was muzzled from day one by the rulers who formulated various strategies to break their will to pursue their cause of right to self-determination.”
“The main aim of observing Youm-e-Aseeran is to remember prisoners and express solidarity and sympathy with their families,” said Mirwaiz, appealing to the international human rights organizations including Red Cross, Asia Watch, Amnesty International to take strong notice of the condition of Kashmiri prisoners in jails.
He alleged the prisoners were not being provided medical facilities according to the jail manuals.
Mirwaiz said that Kashmiri youth were being thrown into jails by invoking “black laws” like PSA. “Such acts of arbitrary arrests and impunity are highly regrettable and condemnable,” he said, reiterating the demand for unconditional release of all Kashmiri prisoners on the eve of Idd-u-Zuha. He said such a step would help create conducive atmosphere on the ground, leading ultimately to the solution of Kashmir issue.
