Srinagar, September 05 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has expressed concern over the deteriorating situation in the territory, particularly in South Kashmir.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said that people were facing frequent crackdown operations by the Indian forces making their daily life a hell.

He condemned the authorities for leaving the civilian population in the occupied territory at the mercy of brutal Indian forces. He termed killing, arresting and taking people hostage in the name of so-called cordon and search operations in the territory, especially in South Kashmir, as the worst kind of state terrorism.

The Mirwaiz also demanded immediate release of Hurriyat leader, Sarjan Barkati, who was arrested during the 2016 uprising stating that he is being deprived of all the basic facilities guaranteed in the jail manual which is taking toll on his health. He said that slapping of draconian law, Public Safety Act, again and again on Sarjan Barkati was nothing but sheer political revenge as the court had already ordered his release but he continued to be booked under one or the other fictitious charge.
