Srinagar, August 15, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, today, condemned the harassment of Hurriyat leader Shahid-ul-Islam’s family by the Indian agencies. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the Indian agencies tormented the wife and children of Shahid-ul-Islam. He said that these agencies were repeatedly visiting Shahid-ul-Islam’s home to harass his family members. Shahid-ul-Islam, he added, has been arbitrarily detained with no charges proved against him, and is languishing in subhuman condition at Delhi’s Tihar Jail for his political beliefs.
Earlier, wife of Shahid-ul-Islam, Nuzhat Qadri, had said that the family was being harassed by the Indian agencies since his husband had been jailed by the Delhi-based National Investigation Agency (NIA).
