Srinagar, Dec 16:Apni Party President AltafBukhari Thursday expressed resentment over the arrest of a mother-daughter duo for protesting in Rangreth.
A statement of the Apni Party issued here said that Bukhari termed the Police action as an unwarranted and uncalled-for move against an incident that had put a question mark on the claims of the peace-building process in J&K.
“These arbitrary actions are now bolstering a sense of deep alienation among the people and are counterproductive for the efforts to bring peace in Kashmir. Arresting women for raising mere slogans smacks of an intolerant and an autocratic mindset that does not gel with our country’s democratic ethos,” he said.
Bukhari demanded immediate release of the mother-daughter duo and urged Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha’s administration to disallow such intemperate actions.
