NF calls for unconditional release of political prisoners

Srinagar: The National Front on Wednesday called for unconditional release of all political prisoners on eve of Ramadan and demanded an end to “arrest spree”.
The party in a statement demanded that Kashmiri prisoners who have been convicted in different “fake cases” or are under trial must be lodged in the nearest jails so that their close relatives may meet them whenever they like.
The spokesman said that all Kashmiri political prisoners lodged in different jails including Tihar jail “are scripting a new history of resistance by exhibiting steadfastness and determination against the inhuman treatment of jail authorities and unprincipled way of judiciary. All these prisoners have a right to spend the holy month of Ramadan along with their kith and kin”.
He added that releasing the prisoners on eve of religious days is the right of the prisoners and this tradition is being followed world over.
The spokesman said that prolonging the detention of political prisoners is nothing but a “political vendetta to break the will and resolve of the political prisoners like incarcerated National Front chairman Nayeem Khan”.
