Guru, Bhat Anniversaries: Bar Condemns Detentions, Appeals HR Groups to Intervene



J&K High Court Bar Association Srinagar Wednesday condemned the arrest and detention of pro-freedom leaders including Mohammad Yasin Malik, Shabir Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai and other leaders.

“The Bar Association feels that the government, its police and other agencies are labouring under some misconception by keeping these leaders in detention though they know it well that they have tried these methods and tactics in the past also, but have not succeeded in their nefarious designs of stopping them from raising their voice against the suppression and oppression of people of Kashmir by Indian might and are determined to continue their struggle of achieving freedom from Indian Occupational forces,” a statement issued by Kashmir Bar Association said this evening.

The Bar members also condemned the curfew-like restrictions in Lal Chowk and its surrounding areas where curbs have been imposed on the people in not allowing them to venture out and they have been stopped from performing their day to day work.

The Bar Association appealed Amnesty International, Human Rights Group, Asia Watch, OIC and other Human Rights Organizations of the world to take notice of the happening of the Kashmir and “force India to stop the genocide of Kashmiris and to concede to the right of self-determination to the people of Kashmir”.
