Re-arresting Zahid Ali undemocratic, unconstitutional, says JI J&K

Srinagar—Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday vehemently denounced the re-arrest of its spokesperson Advocate Zahid Ali by police and termed it undemocratic and unconstitutional.
Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir said in a statement, “police and other forces in the valley have created a war like situation and have detained thousands of youths including school going children. Government forces are deliberately compressed the people of Kashmir and thus are being involved in spoiling their future.”
Presently there are countless youth who have been detained by police under infamous law Public Safety Act and have been lodged in far flung prisons which is itself a brute violation of democratic norms, Jama’at said.
Pertinently, Zahid Ali, is under police custody since August 31, 2016, and his police remand was extended till November 12, on Monday.—SABAH
