While strongly condemning the arrest of youth in several parts of Kashmir by police, Jamaat-e-Islami Friday called the arrests undemocratic.
In a statement issued here, the Jamaat Spokesman denounces the arrest spree allegedly started by the government “in which hundreds of innocent people mostly youth have been apprehended who are being subjected to physical torture in various police stations and interrogation centre”.
“ Jama’at also criticizes the house arrest of Syed Ali Shah Geelani on his arrival from Delhi. All these actions are anti-democratic and symbol of autocracy. Moreover the attrocities committed by different security agencies upon the hapless people throughout the valley are most condemnable”, the statement said.
“Jama’at-e-Islami vehemently demands to put a stop to on-going state terrorism and vandalism forthwith and accept the genuine demands of the people in letter and spirit”, the spokesman added.
