According Spokesperson, Ummat e Islami, Qazi Yasir was defying arrest since the Killing of LeT commander Bashir Lashkari.“Qazi had gone into a hiding after his house was raided couple of times.”

“Yesterday Qazi Yasir addressed a pro freedom Demonstration at pampore after Asar prayers,” spokesperson added.

The entire Hurriyat leadership has also been put under house detention. The Joint Hurriyat has called for a general strike today on the death anniversary of Hizb Commander Burhan.

Burhan, a 22-year Top commander of Hizb, was killed by the forces in Bemdoora, village of Kokernag in district Anantnag on July 8, 2016, sparking widespread protests across whole Kashmir and parts of Jammu’s Chenab valley leaving more than 90 people dead and thousands injured, mostly pellet victims, during the five-month-long unrest.
