Srinagar

In occupied Kashmir, in keeping with its tradition since 1965, the Awami Action Committee, headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, observed October 10 as the Prisoner’s Day, yesterday.
A seminar in connection with the day was held at the AAC headquarters in Srinagar where participants paid rich tributes to the courage and steadfastness shown by the hundreds of Kashmiri prisoners lodged in various jails in and outside occupied Kashmir. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who was supposed to preside over the seminar, wasn’t allowed by the authorities, as he continues to be under house detention. However, he addressed the participants over telephone from his residence.—KMS
