Condemning the arrest and harassment during the nocturnal raids on the residences of Hurriyat leaders and activists on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr, the Hurriyat (M) spokesman has described it “ as dictatorial and unethical.’’
Spokesman has also condemned the continuous house arrest of Hurriyat (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and preventing him from attending the congregation of Juma tul Vida at historic Jamia Masjid Srinagar which has been the practice of the Mirwaiz of the time for over a century.
Spokesman said it is for the first time in the recent history of Kashmir that Jamia Masjid was lockdown on the occasion of Juma-tul-Vida and the devotees who wait for the whole year to participate in this event were prevented by the authorities through the use of force to attend the same. The spokesman has said that on the basis of sheer use of force the rulers are curbing a religious as well as political right which is highly condemnable.
The spokesman also condemned the arrest of JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and nocturnal raid on the residence of Hurriyat leader Ghulam Nabi Zaki and a number of other resistance activists.
