In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, APHC leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Social Peace Forum, Advocate Divender Singh Behl has expressed serious concern over the continued illegal detention of APHC Chairman, Masarrat Aalam Butt and other resistance leaders.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Divender Singh Behal in a statement issued in Jammu said that the APHC Chairman has been involved in dif-ferent false and concocted cases by occupation au-thorities to prevent him from his just struggle for right to self-determination.
He said, in most of the cases, he has been ac-quitted and the trial of few cases is delayed by the authorities, violating the universal principle of speedy trial.
He added that Masarat Alam Butt was the most popular resistance leader of occupied Kashmir and India could not prolong his detention and stop him from leading the genuine freedom struggle.
Divender Singh urged Pakistan to raise the issue of continued illegal detention of Masarat Alam with international community and especially with OIC on priority basis as he has been deprived of right liberty and to carry forward aspirations of the Kashmiri people.—INP
