SRINAGAR: Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir has vehemently denounced the shifting of Muslim Deeni Mahaz (MDM) chairperson Dr Muhammad Qasim Faktoo, Dr Mohammad Shafi Shariati and other inmates from Central Jail Srinagar to Jammu jails terming it a blatant infringement of the prisoners’ rights accepted under the United Nations Charter and in all the civilised laws of the world.
“This is a part of the well-hatched design to suppress the freedom voice of the hapless people of Kashmir,” Jama’at said in a statement. “It is also an ideological and political vendetta in force upon the people to accept the hegemony of Indian establishment.” “India is trying to inhume the freedom movement with muscle power which is however impossible. People are doing no crime but fighting peacefully and democratically for obtaining their political right ‘right to self determination’ accepted by United Nations besides India and this just and sacred movement definitely will meet its logical end soon despite of harsh methods adopted by Indian establishment.”
Meanwhile, Jama’at said that “Indian forces have arrested a number of innocent youths including a 75-year-old person Sanaullah Bhat of Hajin during nocturnal raids”.
“Jama’at condemns the shifting of Kashmiri prisoners and arbitrary arrests by government forces, appeals to human rights organisations of the world including those works in India to take serious notice of state sponsored atrocities and take effective steps to curb this unjustified process of political vengeance,” the statement said.
