Terming the continued restrictions imposed by authorities on people and separatist leadership as undemocratic and illegal, Hurriyat Conference (M) Friday condemned use of force to quell people’s voices.

In a statement issued here, the Hurriyat spokesman said preventing people from offering Friday prayers was unislamic, oppressive and undemocratic bereft of one bit of morality.

“By enforcing curfew for seventh consecutive day on Friday, the authorities have encroached upon the civil, social and religious rights of the people. While the authorities prevented people from offering congregational Friday Prayers at most of the masjids and Imam bargahs including historic Jamia Masjid, at the same time the Hurriyat Conference leadership was either kept under house arrest or detained at various police stations”, the Hurriyat spokesman said adding “Hurriyat Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was refused the religious right to offer prayers by keeping him under house arrest at New Delhi”.

He said most of the leaders including Prof Abdul Gani Bhat, Agha Syed Hassna and Mukhtar Ahmad Waza were either put under house arrest or lodged at various jails.

The hurriyat spokesperson condemned the authorities for usurping the religious, legal and social rights of the people by enforcing inhuman restrictions.

He said the interference in religious matters of Kashmiris was condemnable and at the same time intolerable for Kashmiris.

“After atrocious and illegal hanging of Afzal Guru, people are facing hardships due to restrictions. There is shortage of essential commodities and medicine. Children have nothing to eat whileas people are running out of rations”, he said adding “Patients are suffering for want of medicine whileas it has become impossible to shift them to hospitals due to strict curfew”

The spokesman said that atrocious policies of the government will fail to break the resolve of people and the pro-freedeom leadership. “People and the leadership while sticking to their stand will keep peacefully fighting for self determination and freedom for they stand committed for years”, he added.
