Srinagar, July 25 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, senior APHC leader and the Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai has welcomed the acquittal of four Kashmiri prisoners after 23 years.

An Indian court ordered the release of four Kashmiris, who remained illegally detained in New Delhi’s Tihar jail for the past 23 years.

Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “It gives us an idea about the working of the judiciary and their bias against Kashmiris. They are hell-bent to stifle any voice of dissent.”

He said after incriminating them in false cases, the judicial system made them spend twenty-three years of their lives in jails. It took them 23 years to come to a conclusion that they were innocent, he added.

Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai also condemned the illegal detention of party leader, Syed Imtiyaz Haider, and said the court has quashed his Public Safety Act (PSA) and ordered his release but despite it he is in police custody.

A TeH delegation led by Rafiq Owasi visited the residence of youths who were released after 23 years of imprisonment and shared the joy with the families.

He appealed to the international human rights organizations to intervene and help release all the illegally detained political leaders and activists including Syed Imtiyaz Haider.

Meanwhile, the Chairperson of Kashmir Tehreek-e-Khawateen, Zamruda Habib has welcomed the acquittal of four Kashmiri prisoners after 23 years and said who can return their precious 23 years of their life. She visited the house of Lateef Ahmad Waza and greeted his mother on the release of her son. She said that it was not occurred for the first time but many Kashmiri prisoners had been acquitted after spending many years in jails.

She said presently many innocent Kashmiri people especially Hurriyat leaders and activists have been languishing in different jails of India and the territory and demanded their immediate release.

The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Political League, Farooq Ahmad Tauheedi in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the unprecedented sacrifices given by the people for the Kashmir would not be allowed to go waste. He said Kashmiris would continue the martyrs’ mission and would take the ongoing liberation movement to its logical conclusion.
