SRINAGAR: Muslim League Jammu Kashmir led by Mushtaq-ul-Islam on Sunday condemned the detention of resistance leaders, saying “it is extremely unwise to deny political space and muzzle the genuine voices”.
A Muslim League spokesperson Saad Salfi in a statement expressed serious concern over the “fresh arrest spree, night raids on Muslim League workers and activists, harassment of peaceful civilians and humiliation during night raids and crackdowns”.
“Police during night raids are ransacking properties and humiliating inmates,” the spokesperson said. “These unlawful and unethical restrictions will prove counterproductive and despite all odds we will pursue our mission for right to self-determination.”
Paying tributes to youth killed in Kulgam, the ML spokesperson said “these brave-hearts are facing a big power and lay their lives to end the age-old slavery”.
He termed the killings as “very unfortunate” and blamed the government forces. “These forces under a well-thought-out plan are carrying out bloodshed and are inflicting brutalities on civilians,” he said.
Extending condolence and solidarity to the bereaved families, Saad said, “We share grief and stand with them.”
