In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has expressed deep concern over the plight of illegally detained APHC leaders and activists, including its Chairman Masarrat Aalam Butt and said that the Modi-led Indian fascist regime is hell-bent on killing the Hur-riyat leadership in hell like jails.
The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar deplored the inhuman treatment meted out to the detainees and said they are deprived of medi-cal treatment and all other basic amenities as rec-ommended by the Human Rights Charter of 1948, especially the clear guidelines pertaining to prison-ers of conscience and even the prisoners of war.
The spokesman said that while many of the ailing parents, spouses and children of the prisoners die during their detention, even then the prisoners are not allowed to have last glimpse or participate in their funerals.
He gave the the example of Mohammad Yasin Attaie, Ayaz Akbar and Ameer Hamza, whose wives died while they remained in detention.
Merajudin Kalwal, imprisoned in Tihar jail, lost his mother and Mohammad Yasin Malik faces the agony of his ailing mother and sister be-hind the iron bars of Tihar jail, he maintained.
Similarly, thousands of Hurriyat prisoners lan-guishing in various jails in and outside the occupied territory have been deprived of basic facilities.
