In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has saluted its chairman and resistance leader Shabbir Shah on the completion of four con-secutive years of captivity.
The DFP in a statement issued in Srinagar said, exactly four years ago, Shabbir Shah was arrested in the manner of kidnapping from Srinagar and taken to the infamous Tihar Jail in India.
It said, although hundreds of pages of so-called charge-sheet have been filed against Shabbir Shah, the fact is that not a single evidence has been pro-vided to substantiate the allegations against him.
This is the reality of Shabbir Shah’s 33-year prison life, it added.
The DFP said that Shabbir Shah was forced to spend half his life in various prisons and torture cells, but each time he was released because his politics is transparent.
“He wants the Kashmir dis-pute to be resolved according to the will of the Kashmiri people and that is his politics.
He believes in dialogue, but he is not afraid to call oppressor as oppressor and oppression as oppression,” it main-tained.
It said, even today Shabbir Ahmad Shah along with Muhammad Yasin Malik, Masarat Alam Butt, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Pir Saifullah, Ayaz Akbar, Nay-eem Ahmad Khan, Merajuddin Kalwal, Shahid-ul-Islam, Aasiya Andrabi, Naheeda Nasreen, Fehmida Sufi, Dr Ghulam Muhammad, Syed Shahid Yusuf, Syed Shakeel Ahmed, Farooq Ahmad Dar and hun-dreds of other political prisoners is scripting an unforgettable history of resistance.
The DFP appealed to all the justice-loving pow-ers of the world to take steps to resolve the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people and save the peace of South Asia from being ruined.
“It is the responsibility of the judicious institu-tions to take practical steps to curb Indian atrocities in IIOJK as New Delhi seeks to wipe out the Kash-miris by using its entire institutions,” it added.—KMS
