Srinagar: JKLF Friday said that arresting peaceful political opponents in the name of securing democracy is hypocrisy.
In a statement Front vice chairman Mohammad Saleem Haroon said, “To make election drama a success, India has crossed every limit of anti-democratic behaviour. Any act or exercise for which whole population is put under strict military and police restrictions, political leaders and activists are arrested and peaceful political activities are banned cannot be termed as democratic.”
He said, “These acts are against the essence of democracy and peaceful co-existence. They are actually a glaring example of a systematic military operation named as elections.”
