SRINAGAR: While condemning the slapping of 37th PSA on Muslim League chairman Masarat Alam, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) on Thursday said that PSA has become a tool of ‘suppression and oppression’.
The government on Wednesday slapped 37th Public Safety Act (PSA) on the incarcerated Muslim League chairman Masrat Alam Bhat.
A DFP spokesperson said in a statement issued here said: “The slapping of another PSA on Masarat Alam has proved that there is nothing against him. The administration has made its mind to place Alam behind bars and it is using PSA as a tool otherwise courts have repeatedly quashed his detention and directed his release but the administration is adamant on placing him in far off jails.”
The spokesperson appealed the human rights forums to play their role in getting prisoners like Masarat Alam out of jails.
Meanwhile, DFP said the chargesheet against Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief Aasiya Andrabi and her associates, Nahida Nasreen and Sofi Fehmeeda, will prove a ‘hoax like the chargesheet against JKDFP chief Shabir Shah’.
“The chargesheet will never be proved same as the chargesheet of ED against the incarcerated JKDFP chief Shabir Shah was not proved. The agencies like ED and NIA have been told to silent the vibrant voices of Kashmir so they have arrested leaders and manufactured chargesheets against them,” the spokesperson added.
