Appeals International Community to come to their rescue

Srinagar: J&K High Court Bar Association Srinagar on Thursday strongly condemns the re-arrest of two sisters in Anantnag, saying one of them being a P.G. (Economic) student who has to appear in the examination this month.
Bar in a statement said that “lodging them in Police Station Sadder Anantnag in a beastly manner is condemnable”.
“Moreover summoning of many other girls to the police station and in case of their failure to report in the police stations, of raiding their houses and arresting their parents and humiliating, harassing and abusing them and terms the same as a serious invasion of their privacy and violation of their basic human rights and appeals the International Community to come to their rescue immediately, before it would be too late to safeguard their honour, prestige and dignity,” Bar said.
In an Executive Committee meeting held here on Thursday, the members also stressed on the need of unity and cohesion among all ranks of the people to fight against “the tyranny, oppression and reign of terror let loose in the state by the ruthless forces”.
The Bar members while supporting the call of JRL to observe last Friday of Ramadhan as “Palestine and Kashmir Day”, to impress upon the world community to rise to the occasion to solve the Palestine and Kashmir issue in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the people, who are both suffering the onslaught of ruthless forces for the last 70 years with the people of the civilized world watching their plight as mute spectators.
The Bar members however appreciated the stand taken by the Argentinian Football team, in refusing to play a football match with an Israeli Football team in a sports stadium constructed by the Zionist forces on the Palestinian land, even though the Israeli Prime Minister had personally intervened in the matter and had talked to Argentinian Prime Minister to persuade its team to play the football match, but the team refused to do so, on the ground that the land on which the stadium has been constructed forcibly belongs to Palestinian people and that they do not want to hurt their sentiments and feelings.
