Condemning the re-arrest of Sarjan Barkati after his PSA was quashed by a court, Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) today said, "His re-arrest is the height of suppression."
In a statement today, the DeM secretary general Nahida Nasreen said, "While the court had quashed his PSA but the police arrested him again, which is highly condemnable."
"Barkati was arrested on October 1 and was later booked under Public Safety Act and shifted to Kotbalwal jail. The re-arrest of Barkati is political retribution," Nasreen said.
"Barkati was instrumental in arranging massive pro-Pakistan rallies in the parts of south Kashmir which unnerved the rulers" Nasreen said.
"Jammu and Kashmir is directly ruled by Sangh Parivaar, sitting in Delhi and their agents have no authority in any of the affairs. We are facing this lawlessness for last 70 years and the oppressor is bulldozing every move which they think can be detrimental in challenging their authority," she said.
