Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday said that authorities have booked the chief spokesperson of the Jamaat, advocate Zahid Ali, under Public Safety Act.
“Jamaat strongly condemns the PSA slapped on advocate Zahid Ali. It’s muzzling of peaceful voice by suppressive tactics. Ali has been under police detention since 22nd of February, 2019,” a statement said.
“He was detained by police during midnight raid from his residence and was shifted to PS Shergari where he was lodged for hours and then back to PS Kakapora. After a week he was shifted to PS Ganderbal where from he was moved to Central Jail Srinagar’, the statement said. “Today PS Ganderbal slapped PSA on him. Earlier Mufti Mujahid Shabir Falahi was also booked under PSA and was shifted to Kot Bhalwal Jammu,” it added.
