Srinagar: J&K People’s Forum, a non government organisation, on Wednesday demanded the immediate release of rights defender Khurram Parvez.
“Arrest and detention of activist in a democratic set up is totally unwarranted and amounts to grass violation of human rights. We demand immediate release of arrested youth and revocation of detention of activists like Khurram Parvez,” J&K People’s Forum said in a statement.
The forum also deplored the events of setting on fire various school buildings in the Valley. “Such acts are not expected to be performed by any sane person,” it said.
