Srinagar: The incarcerated chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), Shabir Ahmad Shah, on Thursday said arresting Qazi Yasir reflected “frustration of Mehbooba Mufti-led government”.
In a statement issued here, Shah said, “The arrest of Mirwaiz Qazi Yasir during a press conference is interference in the religious matters. Mirwaiz had called a press conference to announce the programme in connection with the anniversary of Shaheed-e-Ummat Mirwaiz Qazi Nisar.”
Terming the arrest as “unjustified”, Shah said, “The puppet rulers, in order to please their masters in Delhi and Nagpur, have on one hand turned the whole state into a slaughter house and on other side is interfering into the religious affairs of the people.”
He sought to remind chief minister Mehbooba Mufti of making hue and cry over the restrictions on the resistance leadership when she was in opposition.
