Malik, Geelani flay Tihar authorities

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF)  chief  Mohammad Yasin Malik and Hurriyat Conference(G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani Saturday castigated authorities at  New Delhi’s Tihar for not allowing the family members of Kashmiri detainee, Javed Ahmed Khan, to meet him.
Khan is lodged in the jail for the past over 19 years,  Geelani said in  a statement here. The Hurriyat leader appealed to the international human rights organizations to take cognizance of the “inhuman treatment meted out to the illegally detained Kashmiris in jails.”
Several Kashmiri prisoners including Dr. Ghulam Muhammad Bhat, Tariq Ahmad  Dar, Muhammad Rafeeq Shah, Muhammad Hussain Fazili, Abdul Gani Goni, Mahmood Topiwala and Parvaiz Ahmad  Mir ‘are harassed by jail authorities and inmates in every possible way,” Geelani alleged.
Malik said the denial of permission to Khan’s family to meet him was an “inhumane , unjust and undemocratic act.
Khan’s elderly parents had travelled thousands of kilometers and invested a lot of money to reach Delhi for meting their jailed son but, “tyrants and oppressors denied  them a chance to meet him,” Malik said in  a statement.
