Expressing deep concern and anguish over the continuous and illegal detention of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat leaders Ayaz Akbar, Raja Mehraj-ud-din, Rayees Ahmad Mir, Abdul Gani Bhat and Mohammad Amin Parray, General Secretary Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu & Kashmir and deputy of Syed Ali Geelani, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai, Monday strongly condemned these detentions.
“The government has no justification in prolonging the detention of the pro-freedom leaders,” he said in a party statement.
Demanding release of all the political prisoners who are languishing in different Indian as well as state jails, Sehrai said, “despite using every oppressive measure, Indian government has badly failed in suppressing the just and Genuine voices of the Kashmiri people and will never succeed in their plans in future also.”
Sehrai also demanded immediate release of the pro-freedom leaders “who were detained about a month before on the occasion of ‘Million March’ program and who are still not being released from the preventive custody”.
He said, “the imprisonments, bullets, pellets and the banning of peaceful political activities of the pro-freedom people is not going to solve the issue otherwise this attitude will further complicate the problem and it will also add to the alienation of the Kashmiri people particularly the youths of our nation.”
“India has a vast experience of using extremely cruel and autocratic methods in Kashmir right from 1947 to suppress the freedom sentiments of its people. But the Indian rulers are witness to this fact that the Kashmiri nation has neither surrendered their just demand and nor has they shown any kind of weakness in their commitment towards the freedom struggle,” he added. “Kashmiri nation will continue to struggle till the goal of freedom from India is achieved.”
