Srinagar: Expressing concern over the plight of Kashmiri political prisoners in different state and outside jails, Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) on Wednesday called for unconditional release of all detainees.
In a statement, the party also expressed concern over the arrest of pro-freedom activists including Mushtaq Ahmad of Ganderbal district. DFP demanded that Kashmiri prisoners should be treated as political prisoners and must be granted all those rights which are in the jail manual and are recommended by the international forums dealing with political prisoners.
The spokesperson said that “Kashmiri prisoners are facing harsh attitude of the jail authorities on one hand and on the other, these political prisoners are not heard in the judiciary, which has worsened their situation beyond words”.
He hailed the steadfastness and dedication of its incarcerated chairman, Shabir Shah and all other Kashmiri prisoners who are the victims of political vendetta. He said that “long incarcerations cannot break the will and resolve of Shabir Shah and other resistance leaders who advocate the right to self-determination for the people of Jammu Kashmir”.
