TeH leaders concerned over detainees’ plight in IOK

Srinagar, December 03, 2016 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Tehreek-e-Hurriyet Jammu and Kashmir (TeH) has expressed serious concern over the plight of illegally detained Kashmiris languishing in different jails.

The TeH leaders and activists including Peer Saifullah, Raja Merajuddin, Abdul Hamid Magrey, Hafiz Bashir Ahmad Farooqi and Farooq Ahmad Butt addressing public gatherings at different places said that the puppet administration had waged a war against youth of the territory. They said, “Indian police during night raids ransack properties and harass youth on one pretext or the other. They have unleashed a reign of terror in civilian localities.”

They said, since Dogra regime, it is for the first time when the administration is razing down or sealing properties of political leaders and activists. The so-called authorities have crossed all limits and to prove themselves more loyal than king are chasing youth and peace-loving political activists, they added.

Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League leader, Feroz Ahmad Khan in a statement issued in Srinagar urged the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, to take serious steps for resolving the Kashmir dispute instead of just expressing concern over the tense situation on the Line of Control (LoC) between Pakistan and India.

He said that the amicable settlement of the lingering Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of Kashmiri people would not only normalize ties between the two nuclear neighbours but would also bring peace and prosperity in entire South Asia.
