Srinagar, February 02 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League (JKPL), Mukhtar Ahmed Waza has expressed concern over the plight of Kashmiri political detainees and questioned the silence of human rights organizations over the issue.

Mukhtar Ahmad Waza addressing a condolence meeting in Islamabad town, said it is unfortunate that none of the rights organizations has visited jails of India and the occupied territory to monitor the condition of Kashmiri detainees. He urged the human rights organisations to focus their attention on the grave violations of detainees’ rights in jails and use their good offices to ask New Delhi to release all illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and activists.

Hurriyat leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement, (JKSM), Zafar Akbar Butt, in a statement in Srinagar denounced the fresh arrest spree against party activists and unnecessary harassment of people all over in occupied Kashmir ahead of Indian Prime Minister’s visit.

He said more than 100 party activists have been booked under false cases and their families asked to get bail from 1st Class Magistrate of their local districts, which is highly condemnable.

Meanwhile, a delegation of Hurriyat leaders including Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo and Imtiyaz Ahmad Reshi, today, visited the residence of Hurriyat leader, Farooq Ahmad Tawheedi, who was recently released from illegal detention and enquired about his health. They also discussed prevailing situation of occupied Kashmir with Farooq Tawheedi.

Hurriyat leaders Zafar Akbar Butt and Imtiyaz Ahmed Reshi along with delegations visited the residence of Shabbir Ahmed Zargar and expressed sympathies over the demise of his mother.

General Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Movement, Khawja Firdous Wani in his statement in Srinagar expressed concern over the illegal detention of party activist, Shakeel Ahmed Butt and other prisoners.
