Srinagar: Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) on Thursday appealed Imams and other religious preachers to held special prayers for its ailing and incarcerated chief, Shabir Shah during Friday congregations.
In a statement, a spokesperson said Shabir Shah is seriously ill in Tihar jail and is denied medical aid despite several court directions. “Shah, who is suffering from many serious ailments, is confined to solitary confinement,” he said. “The resistance leader has never compromised on his stand on Kashmir issue,” he said. “He has time and again said that rigid policies are detrimental for the people living in the whole region. So New Delhi must shun its stubbornness policy about Kashmir issue and take practical steps for its resolution.”.
