Muslim Deeni Mahaz has strongly condemned the shifting of Dr Muhammad Qasim to Udhampur Jail and termed it as a well-sorted conspiracy to kill the ailing leader, General Secretary MDM in a Statement said.
In a statement, General Secretary Muhammad Maqbool Bhat said that the ailing leader was taken for a health checkup on 3rd March 2018 and instead of being brought back to central jail he was shifted to Udhampur.
“It is blatant deception, even as, the court had clearly directed the Jail authorities to lodge him at Central jail,” he said.
Maqbool said that “the transfer of Dr Qasim is against the supreme court rulings as well as the apex court has already judged that an incarcerated person should be held at a detention facility nearest to his home.”
The general secretary added that “Dr sahab is already facing a lot of ailments like ‘Glaucoma, L4, L5 Disc’ problem and we doubt whether proper healthcare would be provided to him in Udhampur jail.”
He said the incarceration of Dr Qasim is a political vendetta against him and now shifting him away from his family shows that the government and administration is hell bent to rake up difficulties on him to satisfy their ego.
“The proper way forward would have been to follow the law in his case and release him as he has completed 25 years in jail but the government have shredded every word of the book of the law in Dr sahab’s case,” he added.
He appealed the world community to look into the case of Dr Qasim and see how a man is being subject to political vendetta because of the ideology he holds.
