Hurriyat leaders subjected to worst kind of political vengeance

Srinagar: All Parties Hurriyat Conference has strongly denounced the continued illegal detention of Hurriyat leaders and activists on baseless and fictitious charges, terming it as the worst kind of political vengeance on the part of Hindutva-driven Indian dispensation led by fascist Modi.

According to a Kashmir Media Service report on Saturday, APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the Kashmiri prisoners were being subjected to brutal treatment and denied even basic facilities including medical care, resulting in steep decline of their health. All these measures, the spokesman added, were being taken under a well-planned conspiracy to break the resolve of the Hurriyat leadership and Kashmiris and muzzle their struggle for the right to self-determination. But, he said, they would never succumb to any pressure and were determined to take the freedom movement to its logical end. He pointed out that all the illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and activists were political prisoners, and, therefore, it was the responsibility of the United Nations and international human rights organizations to take cognizance of their miserable plight.

Meanwhile, India’s notorious National Investigation Agency attached properties of four more Kashmiris in Kupwara and Handwara areas of the occupied territory. The persons whose properties were attached include Muneer Ahmed Banday, Afaq Ahmed Wani, Abdul Moomin Peer and Saleem Andrabi. It is worth noting that after the illegal scrapping of IIOJK’s special status in August 2019, the Narendra Modi-led Indian government has started the drive to snatch land and properties of the Kashmiris on one pretext or another. This is being done to punish them for their affiliation with the freedom movement.
