Bar to hold conference on plight of Kashmiri political prisoners

Condemns demolition of madrasa in Jammu, beating of Rohingyas

Srinagar: The J&K High Court Bar Association, Srinagar, is holding a conference on the occasion of Universal Human Rights Day in the District Court Complex Srinagar, on December 9.
A statement issued by the Bar said the conference will discuss the plight of Kashmiri political prisoners lodged in different jails, inside and outside the State and the failure of the International human rights groups in addressing their problem.
The Bar has decided to invite the heads of all the bar associations of the state, human rights activists, intellectuals, academicians, teachers, students and other professionals to participate in the conference, the statement said.
Meanwhile, the Bar has strongly condemned the demolition of a madrasa at Gool Gujral by Jammu Development Authority (JDA) and alleged desecration of religious books. The statement said that the madrasa was established in 1980 and the JDA demolished the madrasa without even allowing the school authorities to bring out the religious books.
The Bar also condemned the beating and detaining of ten Rohingya Muslims at Channi Rama Jammu by police with belts and sticks, after a cow carcass was found near their camp, though all of them had denied the allegations and had stated that all of them are innocent. The Bar statement demanded end to harassing of innocent Rohingya Muslims, and that those who are guilty of beating and detaining them, be dealt with under law.
