Srinagar, Jul 19: Joint Hurriyat leadership comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik have termed the custodial death of 66-year-old Ghulam Hassan Malik alias Noor Khan, a resident of Peelipora, Uri in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district as ‘a biggest human tragedy’.

Malik was languishing in Kotbalwal, Jail Jammu and died recently due to serious complicacies for the want of proper medical treatment, the Joint Hurriyat  said in a statement issued t

Joint Hurriyat  said that death of Malik during imprisonment has proved the apprehensions of resistance leadership right that Kashmiri prisoners were ill-treated in jails and not even provided with the basic medical aid which poses a great threat to lives as proven in the case of Malik.

 

Paying tributes to the courage and patience shown by Malik during incarceration, the JRL said that Kashmiri nation will always remember the contributions made by Malik towards the freedom movement throughout his life.

The leadership said that the elderly person was slapped with draconian PSA and arrested from his home and later lodged in notorious Kotbalwal Jail where he was denied the medical aid with the result his health deteriorated which later resulted in his death during incarceration.

They said that like Malik, dozens of Kashmiri prisoners are being denied the basic medical health facilities as guaranteed by the jail manuals which put their life at a great risk.

Joint Hurriyat  said that the relatives of most of the Kashmiri resistance leaders who met them in Tihar narrated a painful tale that includes non-availability of medicines, and things required by a person on a daily basis.

The trio appealed the heads of all rights forums across the globe that include Amnesty International, Asia Watch, and CRC urging them to conduct a thorough visit of various Indian and other jails of Jammu and Kashmir that include Kathua, Jammu, Udhampur, Kotbalwal, and also the Central Jail Srinagar to take the stock of the ill treatment meted out to the prisoners.

They urged international organisations to build pressure on Delhi to provide the medicines and basic medical aid to the prisoners who are in need of it to prevent further deaths.

The leadership strongly condemned and expressed their resentment over the manhandling of dozens of villagers and vandalizing the property worth lakhs in Mochuwara village of South Kashmir’s Shopian district during the nocturnal raid terming it as ‘the ultimate highhandedness and highly undemocratic act’ that deserves all forms of condemnations.

The leadership termed the forces act of vandalizing properties and beating people to the pulp as ‘the worst form of state terrorism’.

They said forces are launching search operations on their choice and thrashing people at their will has become a routine affair in Kashmir now which stands an eye-opener for the world community.

Reasons by GoI to suspend cross-LoC trade highly indefensible: Soz

Avatar

Published

Srinagar, April 23: Alleging that Prime Minister Narendra Modi wanted to promote propaganda for 2019 Lok Sabha elections by trying to bring Pakistan, Kashmir and whatever suits his imagination, senior Congress leader and former union minister Prof Saifuddin Soz on Tuesday said reasons being given for stopping Cross-Line of Control (LoC) trade were highly untenable and indefensible.

“PM Modi wants to promote propaganda for Election 2019 and tries to bring in Pakistan, Kashmir and whatever suits his imagination”, Soz said in a statement here.

He alleged that since everything is happening at the behest of Prime Ministers Office (PMO), stopping the LOC trade between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad all of a sudden, is seen by the trading communities on both sides, as part of a “trickery” aimed at the Election-2019.
