Hurriyat (m) concerned over deteriorating health condition of Yasin Malik


Hurriyat (m) Conference on Saturday expressed his serious concern over the deteriorating health condition of incarcerated JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik stating that the media reports that have come to fore through the family members of Malik have raised alarm among the masses across Kashmir about the ill-treatment meted out to him in Tihar jail.

The spokesman said that family members and the people of Kashmir are worried about Malik’s well being.

Hurriyat said that Malik is already suffering from multiple ailments and denying him proper medical treatment can pose a threat to his life which amounts to a brazen violation of human rights and jail manual.

Hurriyat said that the resistance leaders booked under “frivolous” cases by the ED and NIA have completed around two years of imprisonment and yet these agencies have failed to prove any charges against them that include Shabir Shah, Shahid Ul Islam, Altaf Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Raja Mehraj, Bashir Ahmad Bhat, Nayeem Khan, G M Bhat, Shakeel Yousuf, Shahid Yousuf, Asiya Andrabi, Sofi Fahmeeda, Nahida Nasreen and Zahoor Watali.

Hurriyat while denouncing their continuous “illegal” detention expressed serious concern that they are being deprived medical facilities and their confinement is being prolonged on one pretext or the other. Hurriyat said the treatment meted out these prisoners is a brazen violation of jail manuals and the international Geneva Convention.

Hurriyat appealed the international organizations including UNHRC, Amnesty International, Asia Watch, and others to use their good offices to ensure the safety and proper medical care for the detainees.
