DFP praises resolve of Shabir Shah towards Kashmir issue

Srinagar: Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) on Friday praised the resolve and unflinching stance of its incarcerated chief, Shabir Shah towards the long-standing Kashmir issue.
The statement said: “Shabir Shah despite his serious ailments is bravely resisting the hardships of Tihar jail. He is in his 32 year of imprisonment for advocating the right to self-determination of the people of Jammu Kashmir. The people of Kashmir have also time and again acknowledged the unmatched sacrifices of Shabir Shah.”
The spokesperson expressed concern over the pathetic condition Kashmiri prisoners are made to face in and outside the state of Jammu Kashmir especially in Tihar Jail.
He said that despite being political prisoners they are denied every right guaranteed in the jail manual. Revengeful attitude of the rulers in Delhi has crossed every limit of heartlessness and insensitivity.
“New Delhi willfully prolongs their stay in jails through judicial victimization,” he said.
“Slow and humiliating judicial process has already ruined the lives of so many young Kashmiri innocents who were arrested on factious cases and are yet to be augmented with the documentary evidence of their so called crimes,” he added.
