Srinagar, March 14 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani has appealed to the Amnesty International, Asia Watch, International Committee of Red Cross and other human rights organisations to impress upon India to treat Kashmiri prisoners as per the charter laid by the global community about treatment of political prisoners.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement in Srinagar said that Kashmiri detainees were not criminals but were political prisoners who were being subjected to detention for their political convictions. He said, the arrest of pro-freedom leaders and activists proves that India has failed to challenge the people’s struggle for freedom, politically. The APHC chairman maintained that Delhi-based National Investigation Agency had no jurisdiction to arrest anyone in occupied Kashmir on flimsy grounds. He said Indian judiciary and executive are hand in glove to prolong the detention of Kashmiri prisoners. »
