Shabbir Shah’s stance towards Kashmir dispute praised » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, May 03 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has praised the resolve and unflinching stance of its illegally detained Chairman, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, on the long-pending Kashmir dispute.

A DFP spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said Shabbir Shah despite his serious ailments is bravely resisting the hardships of Tihar Jail. He expressed serious concern over the pathetic condition of Kashmiri political prisoners languishing in different jails of India and the occupied territory especially in Tihar Jail. He said despite being political prisoners they are denied every right guaranteed in the jail manual. Revengeful attitude of the rulers in Delhi has crossed every limit of heartlessness and insensitivity, he deplored.

The spokesman said slow and humiliating judicial process has already ruined the lives of many young Kashmiris arrested on factious charges.

He said New Delhi is also prolonging the illegal detention of Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Aasiya Andrabi, Peer Saifullah, Altaf Ahmed Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Raja Meraj-ud-Din Kalwal, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Shahid-ul-Islam, Farooq Ahmed Dar, Fehmeeda Sofi, Naheeda Nasreen, Shahid Yousaf, Syed Shakeel Ahmed, businessman Zahoor Ahmed Watali and other political prisoners languishing in Tihar Jail.

He said it is unfortunate that the Indian fascist ruling class treats resistance leaders like criminals in jails which have been turned into the worst interrogation centres. He said political prisoners including Shabbir Shah, Masarrat Aalam Butt, Dr Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo, Dr Muhammad Shafi Shariati, Dr Ghulam Muhammad Butt, Muzaffar Ahmed Dar, Talib Hussain, Ghulam Qadir Butt, Muhammad Ayoub Dar and Muhammad Ayoub Mir are the torch-bearers of the resistance movement.

The spokesman appealed to the UN Human Rights Council, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch to take cognizance of the inhuman treatment meted out to the Kashmiri political prisoners in jails.
