SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference (M) on Friday termed the reports about the state’s intention to set up a Guantanamo-like prison in Kashmir as “a matter of grave concern”.
Commenting on the report in Kolkata-based new per The Telegraph, a spokesman of the Mirwaiz Umar Farooq-led conglomerate said, “The government of India’s plan of setting up of notorious and infamous Guantanamo Bay-type prison in Kashmir, which according to the report, the coalition government in the state has already agreed to, is a matter of grave concern for the freedom-loving people of Kashmir.”
The spokesman said the plan was meant to implement the “aggressive RSS agenda” in Kashmir.
He said these designs were being made to break the will of the pro-freedom leadership and freedom-loving people of Kashmir.
Even the United States had to close down the infamous Guantanamo Bay prison due to the strong protest against it from the human rights bodies and the influential members of the international community, he said.
Meanwhile, the spokesman paid tributes to the two Kashmiri youths Mehraj Ahmad Bhat, of Andargam Pattan, and Adil Ahmad, of Brat Sopore, who were killed during a gunfight with the government forces at Kunzar, Tangmarg.
