Srinagar, May 23 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, senior APHC leader and the Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai has demanded unconditional release of Kashmiri political prisoners before the Eid-ul-Fitr.

Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai in a statement issued in Srinagar said traditionally states all over the world release the prisoners on this occasion. “But in Kashmir this tradition has no place even for political prisoners and the tragedy is even the arrest spree continues even in this holy month of Ramadan.

He said Kashmir is a political and human dispute and by placing the people in jails for years will neither solve this dispute nor can be the realities regarding to this issue changed.

He said prolonging the detention of prisoners is nothing but a political vendetta to break their resolve. He said time has proved that all the detainees have shown a tremendous courage and patience despite remaining in prisons for months and years together and deprived of all the basic facilities guaranteed in their respective jail manual. “We salute to their courage and commitment,” he added.
