Srinagar, October 19, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has condemned the occupation authorities’ policy of not releasing illegally detained Kashmiri leaders, activists and youth, despite the courts have ordered their release on bail in the wake of recent devastating floods. Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said that several innocent youth and students from Baramulla, who were booked on fake charges were not released by police despite the cases against whom were found baseless and courts had ordered their release.
These youth included Faizan Ahmad Tantray, Fiaz Ahmad Kumhar, Majid Ahmad Shaikh, Abdul Qayyum Najjar, Aashiq Qadir Lone, Altaf Ahmad Gojri, Sohail Ahmad Malik, Javed Ahmad Dar, Tauseef Ameen Khan and Raja Ashfaq Ahmad Khan.
He said that the detainees were more worried about the safety and security of their families after the flood hit the territory.
Syed Ali Gilani said that even those detainees, who had secured bail from courts, were not being released. He termed it as the worst kind of political vengeance against the people of Kashmir.
The veteran leader, while stressing the immediate release of all youth including political detainees, called upon international human rights organizations to play their role in mitigating the worries of the Kashmiri detainees.
Meanwhile, a meeting of Tehreek-e-Hurriyet Jammu and Kashmir central executive committee was held at Hyderpora in Srinagar, today, with Syed Ali Gilani in the chair. The meeting took stock of the ongoing relief activities in the territory. Head of the committee, Pir Saifullah, briefed the members about the distribution of relief among the flood affectees.
