In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has expressed strong resentment over the continued illegal house arrest of its Chairman, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, terming it as frustration of the puppet authorities.
The DFP General Secretary, Maulana Abdullah Tari, in a statement issued in Srinagar also condemned the continued house arrest of the APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, saying there is no constitutional or moral justification for his detention.
Giving details of Shabbir Shah’s detention, Maulana Tari said that from 2011 till date, he had been in police detention or under house arrest for a period of 43 months and 5 days and during this period he was barred from offering 242 Friday and 12 Eid prayers. “During this period, Shabbir Shah’s many close relatives passed away but he wasn’t allowed to attend their last rites,” he said.
He said that pro-India PDP by entering into unholy alliance with BJP had proven its regime to be the most useless and selfish one as for power it had turned the whole territory into a virtual jail.—KMS
