Atrocities on Srinagar jail inmates flayed

Srinagar, February 15 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, a protest rally was held in Srinagar, today, against the killing of innocent civilians, illegal detention of Hurriyat leaders and activists and frequent cordon and search operations carried out by Indian forces.

The participants of the rally, which was organized by the Joint Resistance Leadership, had carried placards and banners reading anti-India and pro-freedom slogans. People from different walks of life including resistance leaders Sheikh Abdur Rasheed, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Muhammad Yasir, Bashir Kashmiri, Showkat Bakhshi and Omar Aadil Dar participated in the protest march. Speakers on the occasion condemned the Indian authorities for subjecting Kashmiri people to political vendetta for seeking their internationally-accepted right to self-determination. They demanded immediate release of all illegally detained Kashmiris languishing in different jails.

The Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Aasiya Andrabi in a statement in Srinagar criticized the authorities of wreaking havoc on the inmates of Srinagar central jail, particularly after the recent attack on a jail bus outside a hospital in the city. She said that there was no justification of inhuman treatment to the inmates for the lapse of jail staff.

Meanwhile, Hurriyat leaders and activists held a prayers session at the grave of freedom leader, Ghulam Muhammad Bulla on his 43rd martyrdom anniversary, today. Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori in his message from Kathua jail said that the sacrifices of Kashmiri martyrs would not be allowed to go waste. Ghulam Muhammad Bulla was arrested by the Indian police and killed in custody on this day in 1975 for leading a protest rally in Sopore against Indra-Abdullah Accord.

A Hurriyat delegation comprising Mushtaq Ahmad Sofi, Farooq Ahmad Sodagar and Muhammad Yousuf Butt visited Sindhipora area of Badgam to express solidarity with the family of slain APHC leader, Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem. The APHC-AJK chapter at a meeting in Islamabad expressed concern over the murder of Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem.

Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik was admitted to Soura Medical Institute after he complained of the blockage of the urinary tract. Many Hurriyat delegations visited Muhammad Yasin Malik and enquired about his health.

On the other hand, a delegation of Jammu and Kashmir Social Peace Forum, led by party Chairman Advocate Devinder Singh Behal visited the family of rape and murder victim, Aasifa at Heeranagar in Kathua district. Devinder Singh Behal demanded stern action against the perpetrators of the heinous crime. Eight-year-old Aasifa was raped and murdered by SPO Deepak Khajuria in Kathua, last month.
