The dignitaries who participated in the book release function included Advocate Miyan Abdul Qayoom, Tariq Ahmad Dar, Abdul Majeed Dar Al-Madni, and Mohammad Maqbool Bhat.
“The function was earlier scheduled at a local hotel in Munawarabad but authorities seized the venue and threatened the hotel owner of dire consequences if allowed to hold the function,” a spokesperson of MDM said in a statement issued here. He said the organisers later on decided to hold the function at party’s head office.
Condemning the “police highhandedness”, the spokesperson said the scheduled function was “absolutely peaceful” literary function and “the police action shows the fear the state and its agencies have developed”.
