SRINAGAR: Jammu Kashmir National Front has expressed deep concern over the plight of Kashmiri political prisoners, including its chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan in different jails of JK and outside state.
The party in a statement said that Nayeem Khan is languishing in Tihar jail since July 2017 and has been denied medical facilities despite the fact that he is suffering from many ailments.
The statement said that New Delhi and its institutions want to break the political will of leaders like Nayeem Khan however they forget the fact that prison has been the second home of every Kashmiri resistance leader including who cannot change their political stance about Kashmir dispute.
“The arrests and other forms of oppression cannot change the ground reality of Kashmir but political measures can not only have a positive impact but also guarantee a stable south Asia. So New Delhi needs to be a bit realistic and change its unethical policy about Kashmir so that the longest standing dispute is resolved once for all,” the statement said.
The Front strongly condemned the policy of shifting Kashmiri political prisoners to outside jails and termed it an act of “barbarism”.
