Sehrai condemns slapping of PSA on Malik, ors


Srinagar, March 07: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai strongly condemn slapping of PSA on JKLF Chief Muhammad Yasin Malik, Advocate Zahid Ali and Mufti Shabir Mujahid of Jammat-e-Islami and Mohd Yousuf Falahi of (TeH) and their shuifting to Kotbalwal jail in Jammu by the authorities.
“It is a sheer injustice and illustrates brazen display of invocation of draconian law and shifted to even far-flung areas is a travesty of justice and fundamental rights and deserves all forms of condemnation,” Sehrai in a statement issued to media.
Sehrai said “draconian laws like PSA is invariably invoked to deny freedom of expression and freedom of demand of dissent. It manifests that a pro-claimed largest democracy is practicing undemocratic and inhuman methods.

“The administration is practicing all the methods of coercion, oppression and arm twisting to crush the people’s resistance and the sentiment cannot be crushed down by state-terrorism, jailing or brute force.”
He expressed his grave concern about unabated use of administrative detention where hundreds of Kashmiris including socio-religious and resistance leaders have been held under “administrative detention’, without being charged or even told what crimes they are suspected of having committed.
