New Delhi prolonging detention of Kashmiri youth: Nayeem Khan

Khan said that at a time when India is busy celebrating its R-Day, one more Kashmiri father could not see his son who is incarcerated only because he demands freedom for his homeland.

Senior leader of Hurriyat Conference Jammu Kashmir and Chairman of National Front Nayeem Ahmad Khan on Sunday hit out at New Delhi for what he said prolonged detention of Kashmiri youth. 

In a statement, Khan said that at a time when India is busy celebrating its R-Day, one more Kashmiri father could not see his son who is incarcerated only because he demands freedom for his homeland. 

Khan was addressing a gathering to condole the demise Ghulam Ahmad Mir of Barna Bhag village of Kangan area. “Mir’s son Muzaffar Ahmad is in detention for more than four years. He had expressed his wish to see his jailed son before his death,” he said. 

He said there are hundreds of ailing parents whose sons are behind bars.

“They are anxiously waiting for their release. There are examples where dozens of parents passed away while waiting for their incarcerated sons to arrive but their last wish was not fulfilled by the priests of the so-called democracy,” Khan said.

“Keeping in view the patience of prisoners like Muzaffar Ahmad, fragrance of the blood of martyrs and the plight of the parents like late Ghulam Ahmad Mir, the resistance movement will continue till the sun of freedom rises on the horizon of Kashmir”.
