Srinagar, June 04, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, strongly condemning the shifting of Hurriyat leader Masarrat Aalam Butt to Tihar jail by India’s National Investigating Agency, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani has said that Masarrat Aalam Butt is behind bars for the past nine years, during which judicial houses of the oppressor itself have quashed his detention 37 times.
Fascist rulers, he added, under the intoxication of arrogance of their power and might have disobeyed the court orders, proving once again that this land is lawless governed by a hateful mindset which neither respects its judicial verdicts nor do they honour their own constitutional and s-called democratic norms.
He said that those raising their voice for their fundamental rights peacefully within the contours of the law, are made to rotten in jails and interrogation centers for decades, but those accused by the investigation agencies for conspiring the murder of a particular minority, are proudly garlanded and voted to assembly and parliament.
The APHC chairman said that it had made history and probably should figure in the world records that a political activist was acquitted of charges not less than 37 times by their own judicial houses, but in spite of honouring the court verdict and setting him free, the poor fellow is shifted to yet another hell like jail in this scorching heat, just to revenge and satisfy their fascist and communal lust.
The pro-freedom leader lauded the important role played by our incarcerated leadership and youth in the far away jails of India as well as those detained in the hell like prisons of the territory , including Mohammad Yasin Malik, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Masarrat Aalam Butt, Dr. G. M. Butt, Dr. Mohammad Shafi Shariyati, Dr. Mohammad Qasim Faktoo, Asiya Indrabi, Fehmeeda Sofi, Nahida Nasreen, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Raja Meraj-ud-din Kalwal, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Shahi-ul-Islam, Fraooq Ahmad Dar, Zahoor Ahmad Watali, Syed Shahid Yousuf, Syed Shakeel Ahmad, Mohammad Yousuf Falahi, Abdul Ahad Parra, Abdul Gani Bhat, Dr. Hamee Fayaaz, Sheikh Mohammad Ramzan, Mushtaq Ahmad Veeri, Abdullah Nasir, Gh.

Paying rich tributes to the youth martyred during the Holy month of Ramadan in Kashmir, the pro-freedom leader said, our young generation has been pushed to the wall by denying civil and political rights with regard to right to self-determination after the military occupation of Jammu and Kashmir by India on October 27, 1947.
Reiterating his clear stand on Kashmir as a globally recognized dispute, final resolution of which is pending in UN for last 70 years, Hurriyat leader castigated Indian military approach for engaging itself in an undeclared war against a caged and oppressed population of Jammu and Kashmir.
The APHC chairman urged United Nations to fulfill its moral, political and diplomatic responsibilities in resolving the long pending Kashmir dispute and prevail upon India to stop holocaust and grave human rights violations by its occupation forces.
