In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir Tehreek-e-Muzahamat Chairman Bilal Ahmad Siddiqui has condemned the arrest of relatives for visiting the graves of their dear ones terming it as a direct interference in religious matters.

Bilal Siddiqui said this in response to the detention of nine teenage boys from Shopian for visiting martyrs’ graveyard in Baramulla on Shab-e-Baraat. He said the act also reflects frustration of the occupational authorities.

The Tehreek-e-Muzahmat leader said, it is a well known religious practice in Islam to visit graves of the beloved ones to offer Fateha on occasion of Shab-e-Baraat but the occupational authorities devoid of all morals and humanity arrested nine youth when they visited the graves of their dear ones.

“This is a shameful act and international human rights bodies should take it seriously,” he demanded.
