Signature campaign kick-starts in Srinagar

Srinagar, May 27, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, a life-sized poster of the incarcerated leader, Dr Muhammad Qasim Faktoo was placed at Pratap Park in Srinagar for a signature campaign demanding their release. The Muslim Deeni Mahaz led by Dr Muhammad Qasim Faktoo placed a poster, which was signed by many students and passersby.

Dr Faktoo was detained on February 5, 1993 under section 3 of Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act (TADA). Though TADA Court Jammu acquitted him on July 14, 2001, but authorities challenged the said acquittal in Supreme Court of India that later sentenced him for life. Notably, more than 26 lifer convicts were released since 1975.
