Srinagar: Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir Tuesday expressed its deep anguish and concern over framing the “innocent” Kashmiri youth in false and concocted “cases of terrorism” by the Indian law enforcing agencies.
“As a result of this well planned process hundreds of innocent youth are languishing in different jails in Jammu and Kashmir and outside it,” Jama’at said in a statement.
As per the statement recently in such a framed case a Kashmiri Muslim boy namely Muzaffar Ahmad Rather along with others have been sentenced to death, though there was no solid evidence against them for any such activities warranting such a stringent punishment.
Muzaffar hails from village Jogipora Mohanpora in Kulgam Kashmir who left his home in 2002 and later was declared to be arrested near Indo-Bangladesh border in 2007 and during this period his family members were searching for him.
Jama’at said that a number of prisoners either sentenced to death or life imprisonment are languishing in different jails who have passed scores of years there but despite this they are not released. Dr. Mohammad Qasim, Dr. Mohammad Shafi Shariyati, Ghulam Qadir Bhat and a number of other innocent Kashmiris are the life convicts facing the same fate and the is no one to come to their rescue and even the courts have failed to deliver justice to them.
Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir while expressing its sympathy and solidarity with such innocent political activists, appeals the international human rights agencies to come forward and raise this humanitarian issue of the political convicts and other such detenues so that they get justice and their most vital fundamental right of life and freedom is safeguarded.
