Srinagar, February 18, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat forum has expressed serious concern over the frequent imposition of curfew and restrictions in Srinagar and caging entire population of the area without any justification.

The Hurriyat forum in a statement issued in Srinagar said: “Just after a single incident anywhere in the territory, the authorities waste no time in imposing curbs and confining people in their homes.”

He said beyond imposition of toughest curbs in downtown, the puppet authorities have developed a habit of placing the Hurriyat Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and other under house detention.

He said that it was only after 13 days of continued house detention that Mirwaiz was allowed to address the Friday gathering at the historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar and soon after his return he was yet again placed under house arrest.

The spokesman also condemned the re-arrest of APHC leader Mukhtar Ahmed Waza stating Waza too is being subjected to political vendetta as caging him in police Sherbagh station is highly undemocratic
