High Court orders release of Masarrat Aalam

Srinagar, October 28 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik has rejected the new ordinance promulgated by the occupation authorities under which the organizers of protests will be liable for imprisonment and fine.

The Governor of occupied Kashmir, N N Vohra, has promulgated an ordinance which says that the organisers of protests would be punished with imprisonment for a period of two to five years or a fine.

The resistance leaders in a joint statement issued in Srinagar, today, said, shutdown is the Universal Democratic Right to register peaceful protest and Hurriyat leaders would use this right despite such threats. They said that invoking of black laws could not intimidate the Kashmiri people and their leadership into submission.

Meanwhile, Hurriyat leader, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, addressing various delegations and public meetings in Pulwama, Kakapora and Samboora areas said that the use of brute force by Indian troops to suppress the Kashmiris’ peaceful liberation struggle should serve as an eye-opener for all the civilized and democratic nations of the world.

India’s National Investigation Agency has summoned prominent freedom leader, Syed Salahuddin’s grandson, Muzamil Ahmed Khan, for questioning on false charges. The NIA has already arrested Syed Saluddin’s son, Syed Shahid Yousuf, after summoning him New Delhi. The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, in a statement in Srinagar strongly condemned the action calling it a ploy to harass and scare the resistance leadership. The family members and relatives of Salahuddin have said that they would tender their court arrest if the puppet authorities failed to stop their harassment by the NIA.

The High Court quashed the illegal detention of senior APHC leader, Masarrat Aalam Butt, under draconian law Public Safety Act and directed the puppet authorities to release him. The Illegally detained Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi, was shifted, to Soura Institute of Medical Sciences for treatment after she complained of severe allergy. However, the authorities again shifted her back to Srinagar Central Jail.

On the other hand, Kashmir Council European Union organized a protest demonstration in front of the Indian Embassy in Brussels, the capital of Belgium, yesterday, to mark 27th October as Black Day. The protesters led by Chairman of the Council, Ali Raza Syed, demanded of India to end its brutalities in occupied Kashmir and give the Kashmiris their right to self-determination.
