Police detain Asiya Andrabi for ‘anti-Valentine’s Day campaign’


Srinagar, Feb 14: Police Friday detained the chairperson of Duktaran-e-Millat Syeda Asiya Andrabi along with three others members here when they were attempting to raid a few restaurants as part of their campaign against the Valentine’s Day celebrations.
She expressed satisfaction over the DeM’s anti-Valentine drive. “We have been carrying out this campaign against obscenity for several years now. Our drive is aimed at safeguarding the youth from the obscene western culture,” she said.
She said the DeM visited many restaurants in Srinagar to spread their anti-Valentine's day message and stop youngsters from observing the Day, “We found zero celebrations on ground,” she said.
Police detained and lodged her at Kothibagh police station along with three other DeM members.
Expressing resentment over the release of ex-Minister Shabir Khan in the sexual assault case, Andrabi said law is different when the victim is a Kashmiri woman. “It shakes the Parliament, civil society, police and civil administration in India when the victim is Nirbhaya (the Delhi gang-rape victim). But when the victims are Neelofar and Asiya of Shopian or those from Kunan-Poshpora, the law is silent and indifferent,” she said while talking to media-persons before her detention.
