SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) on Wednesday appealed people and the Imaams across valley to hold special prayers for the well-being of Kashmiri prisoners including its chairperson, Syeda Aasiya Andrabi, her personal secretary, Sofi Fehmeeda and pray for their release.
In a statement, DeM general secretary, Nahida Nasreen, said as per close family members of Andrabi, the health condition of both Aasiya and Fehmeeda is deteriorating in Jammu jail. “The Jammu heat is unbearable for a common Kashmiri. The temperature is above 40 degree Celsius and there is a lot of humidity. A normal Kashmiri cannot bear this heat and it is very difficult for Baaji Sahiba and Sofi Fehmeeda, who are not well, to bear it,” she said.
Nasreen said the humidity has aggravated the chest problem of Andrabi while as Sofi Fehmeeda is suffering from severe back problem. “In absence of proper medical care and food (required) during the month of Ramadhan, the health of both Baaji Sahiba and Sofi Fehmeeda is deteriorating very rapidly,” she said.
Nasreen said “it is a conspiracy of murder that Indian stooges shifted Aasiya Andrabi to Jammu jail when her health condition was critical. Doctors had advised her life support and she had to be admitted to hospital but these inhuman authorities shifted her to a Jammu jails. It was a conspiracy to kill her in custody”.
Nasreen said people must remember Andrabi, Fehmeeda and all Kashmiri prisoners and hold special prayers for them during the pious month. “People are appealed to make special Dua during Tarawih prayers for Baaji Sahiba, Sofi Fehmeeda and Kashmiri prisoners who have been jailed illegally in JK and across India. Similarly, Imaams are appealed to hold special prayers for the well-being and release of all Kashmiri prisoners,” she said.
