Srinagar: The Hurriyat Conference (G) led by Syed Ali Geelani Sunday condemned the “ill treatment” meted out to the Kashmiri and Pakistani prisoners in Tihar jail, saying this is a gross violation of national and International laws.
“Every country is must abide by these rules and regulations to ensure the safety of every individual under custody,” said the statement.
It said the inmates languishing in Indian jails are mostly political prisoners qualifying for more human and civilized behaviour from their captives, “but they are subjected to inhuman treatment by the authorities.”
“Pro-freedom leaders Shabir Ahmad Shah, Dr. G. M. Bhat, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Raja Mehraj-ud-din Kalwal, Shahid-ul-Islam, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Farooq Ahmad Dar, Syed Shahid Yousuf, Syed Shakeel Ahmad, Zahoor Ahmad Watali despite court orders have not been released,” said the statement.
Hurriyat (G) said that New Delhi themselves tarnish the image and stature of its own judiciary by not respecting their verdict, “but these tactics will not deter us from pursuing our goal of freedom.”
The amalgam also condemned the raid on the incarcerated elder son of Syed Salah-ud-din.
