Hurriyat Conference (M) has strongly denounced the house detention of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq ,who was scheduled to address a Seerat Conference today at Nasrullahpora in central Kashmir's Budgam district, terming it the worst example of 'dictatorial attitude' of the government.

Meanwhile, a number of people at Nasrullahpora came on streets and protested against the house detention of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq. 

"The Hurriyat chairman, who had to address a Seerat conference at Nasrullahpora in Budgam district was placed under house arrest by the state administration early Saturday morning and thus stopped him from participating in a religious programme," a Hurriyat (M) spokesman said.

He termed the curbs on the religious and political activities of the Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who has once again been placed under house arrest, as yet another example of 'state dominance' and dictatorial attitude of the government.

"The government by restricting the movement of the Mirwaiz was violating all democratic norms and established human values. The ruling coalition is working on the RSS agenda and acting more loyal than the king, showing no remorse in persecuting and oppressing the resistance leadership as well as the people," the spokesman said. 

Meanwhile, a delegation of Hurriyat (M) leaders visited Nasrullahpora Budgam where they participated in the Seerat conference and delivered the message of the Mirwaiz to the conference organisers and the people of Budgam. 

Meanwhile, a Hurriyat delegation participated in prayer meeting organized by Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) for senior resistance leader late Amanullah Khan and paid glowing tributes.
