Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) today strongly condemned the slapping of yet another Public Safety Act (PSA) on incarcerated Muslim League (ML) chairman Masarat Aalam Bhat and charge-sheet file by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) against incarcerated Dukhtaran-e –Millat (DeM) chairperson Aasiya Andrabi and her two associates, Nahida Nasreen and Fehmeeda Sofi.
"The PSA has become a tool of suppression and oppression. The charge sheet against Aasiya Andrabi and her associates will prove a hoax like the other charge sheets against the incarcerated leader and DFP chief Shabir Shah," a DFP spokesman said in a statement.
"Slapping of 37th PSA on Masarat Alam has proved beyond doubt that there is nothing against him and he is being put behind bars for nothing. The administration has made its mind to place Masarat Alam behind bars and it is using PSA as a tool otherwise courts have repeatedly quashed his detention and directed his release but the administration is not interested in his release and is adamant on placing him in far off jails.," the spokesman said.
