Srinagar: JKLF(R) chief patron barrister Abdul Majeed Tramboo Friday condemned the continuous detention of pro-freedom leadership in Kashmir.
In a statement, Tramboo said that if India claims to be a largest democracy in the world then it has to respect the principles of democracy. “Otherwise these claims fail when it comes to the matters related to Kashmir,” said.
“Gagging the voice of the pro-freedom leadership is not what we call the democracy,” he added.
Tramboo demanded immediate release of pro-freedom leaders including Mushtaq-ul-Islam and others.
Tramboo castigated the authorities for placing chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani under house detention.
While commenting on the stalemate in government formation in JK, Tramboo said that there was no difference between the pro-India parties. “They all are same. Whosoever forms the government will muzzle the voices and persecute the innocents. Ultimately they have to dance on the music played by Delhi,” he said.
