Stressing upon the release of all the political prisoners before Eid-ul-Zaha, Hurriyat(M) rebellion and National Front Chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan has said that it is a human issue and hundreds of innocent people have been made to remain in jails on baseless cases and majority of them have fallen sick due to their continuous arrest.
“On one hand the government repeatedly talks about confidence building measures and peace, but on the other it keeps its political opponents behind bars,” Khan said in a statement issued Wednesday.
“This proves the government has accepted its defeat by the hands of pro-freedom leaders and activists,” Khan added.
Khan said that release of all the political prisoners is a human issue and nobody’s release can endanger any country “as is projected from Srinagar to New Delhi.”
He said, “The fresh arrest spree in Zalangam, Shopian, Baramulla, Sopore, Srinagar and Islamabad is a proof that claims about peace is a big lie.”
Khan said that hundreds of families are anxiously waiting for their kith and kin to get released and Eid is a suitable event to provide them a bit relief.
