In occupied Kashmir, the Chairperson of Kashmir Tehreek-e-Khawteen, Zamruda Habib, has expressed concern over the Shifting of Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief, Aasiya Andrabi, and her two female colleagues to the ‘punishment ward’ by the authorities of New Delhi’s Tihar jail.
Zamruda Habib in a statement issued in Srinagar said that Kashmiri Hurriyat leaders lodged in Tihar jail and other Indian prisons were not being provided proper medical care. She said the women are the worst victims of torture and other human rights in occupied Kashmir and Begam Naseema, who was arrested by the occupational forces in place of her son, is its glaring example.
Nobody is allowed to protest peacefully especially women who are either locked up in the jail or placed under house arrest. “The parents of the political prisoners, who were part of political struggle, are arrested to punish them. Since August 05, 2019, details of all innocent prisoners have not been allowed to be collected. All these illegal, illegitimate and immoral measures of India cannot stop the Kashmiri people from demanding their legitimate rights,” she added.
Zamruda Habib also expressed concern over the prevailing human rights situation in occupied Kashmir. She said that the UN and international human rights organizations should take notice of the deteriorating health of all Kashmiri political prisoners especially Aasiya Andrabi and her colleagues and play role in their immediate release.—KMS
