Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) on Monday said Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who has been lodged at Sub-jail Chesmashahi, has asked people to follow the joint resistance leadership’s programme in “letter and spirit” and be vigilant of “rumormongers and agents”.
In a statement, the spokesman asked the government to explain why Mirwaiz has been lodged in sub jail Chesham Shahi. “If according to the government Mirwaiz is a ” threat to law and order ” he has been so for the last 49 days when he was put under house arrest and no one was allowed to meet him and most of his communication facilities snapped,” he said.
“People want to know from the government as to why the Mirwaiz has been detained at this time. They have apprehensions because anything can be expected from the desperate ruling regime to bring back so called ” peace and normalcy” in the valley and crushing the people’s revolt and keep them subjugated,” he said.
