In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League (JKML), a constituent of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, has condemned the inhuman treatment meted out by the Indian authorities to the illegally detained Kashmiri Hurriyat leaders languishing in different jails of the territory and India.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the JKML in a meeting in Srinagar presided over by its Acting Chairman, Abdul Ahad Parra, discussed the prevailing situation of the territory. The meeting was attended among others by Farooq Ahmad Tawheedi, Feroz Ahmad Khan and Bashir Ahmad Butt.

The participants expressed serious concern over the health of illegally detained Hurriyat leader, Muhammad Yasin Malik, who was admitted to a hospital after his condition deteriorating at New Delhi’s infamous Tihar Jail. Yasin Malik’s health declined when he was observing hunger strike in the jail against the denial of fair trial in the false cases registered against him.

Abdul Ahad Parra on the occasion said that Yasin Malik was already suffering from various ailments and continued unlawful detention had taken a heavy toll on his health.

He appealed to the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, and world bodies including International Committee of Red Cross, Amnesty International, Asia Watch and Organization of Islamic Cooperation, to play their role in the release of Yasin Malik and other Hurriyat leaders like APHC Chairman Masarrat Aalam Butt, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Aasiya Andrabi, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Dr Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Muhammad Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Merajuddin Kalwal, Shahid-ul-Islam, Mushtaqul Islam, Dr Muhammad Shafi Shariati, Farooq Ahmed Dar, Muhammad Yousuf Mir, Muhammad Rafiq Ganai, Shawkat Hakeem, Merajuddin Nanda, Asadullah Parrey, Molvi Sajjad, Muhammad Yousuf Falahi, Abdul Samad Inqilabi and Ghulam Mohammad Butt.—KMS
