Srinagar, June 15, 2019 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has strongly condemned the arrest of Hurriyat Chief Spokesman, Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar, by Indian police in Srinagar, today. The policemen from Srinagar’s Sher Garhi Police Station arrested Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar from his residence, this morning.
Syed Ali Gilani in a statement in Srinagar terming the arrest of the APHC Chief Spokesman as unlawful and unjustified said that political space was being denied to Hurriyat leadership by creating a situation of uncertainty and political turbulence in the territory. He said, by pushing people to the wall India will achieve nothing and it should face the Kashmiri political leaders and workers on political turf.
On the other hand, complete shutdown was observed in Pampore, Awantipora and other areas of southern Kashmir’s Pulwama district, today, to mourn the killing of two youth by Indian troops. The youth Tasadduq Amin Shah and Irfan Ahmed Digoo were martyred by the troops during a cordon and search operation in Braw Bandina area of Awantipora, yesterday. Delegations of Tehreek-Hurriyat and Muslim Khawateen Markaz visited the residences of the martyred youth in Pampore and Naina Litter areas of the district and paid glowing tributes to them.
The Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, in a statement in Srinagar while paying tributes to the martyred youth said that the insensitivity of the Indian rulers was the sole reason for the unabated bloodshed in occupied Kashmir.
The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Movement, Muhammad Sharif Sartaj, in a statement in Jammu deplored that Indian troops were killing innocent Kashmiris especially youth on daily basis. The Chairman of Karwan-e-Islami, Maulana Ghulam Rasool Hami, addressing a gathering at Nasrullahpora in Budgam said that unresolved Kashmir dispute posed a serious threat to the regional peace.
Meanwhile, Democratic Freedom Party and Muslim League in their statements slammed a Delhi court for sending illegally detained Hurriyat leaders, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Masarrat Aalam Butt and Aasiya Andrabi to judicial custody till 12th July. They said that Indian investigating agencies had failed to prove anything against the three leaders and they were being victimized for advocating the Kashmir cause.
A five-member delegation of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement led by its Chairman, Mir Shahid Saleem, called on the APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, at his residence in Srinagar and apprised him of the prevailing situation of Jammu.
