Islamabad, May 16 (KMS): The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League (JKPFL), Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has expressed grave concern over the deteriorating health of party General Secretary, Muhammad Ramzan Khan.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad said Muhammad Ramzan Khan is suffering from acute Asthma for the last several months developed caused by the unhygienic conditions in his place of detention. He said that despite being an Asthma patient, Ramzan Khan’s house was being raided frequently and he was repeatedly detained and lodged in different police stations but the authorities never arranged any sort of treatment for him. This resulted in developing acute Asthma in him causing serious damage to his lungs, he said.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said that the life of Muhammad Ramzan Khan is in danger and the occupation authorities would be responsible if anything untoward happened to him. He demanded an end to repeated arrests of such serious patients and appealed to the media to cover pitiable stories of suffering Hurriyat workers.
The JKPFL Chairman said that Muhammad Ramzan Khan was a test case who never publicized his chronic illness and the authorities never considered humanitarian aspect of his story. He hoped that the media would at least project such victims so that the world could know what was happening to helpless pro-freedom people’s health due to indiscriminate detentions in jails and torture centers. Public awareness should be created on this issue and the newspapers and courts should equally promote and address these issues, he added.
