KL Report


Lashing out at government for not abiding the court orders to release political prisoners Muslim League Jammu Kashmir Friday said there is no doubt that the ‘state is run by Police’.

“To keep political prisoners and leaders behind bars despite court orders of their release is an open evidence that J&K has become a Police state,” Muslim League General Secretary, Abdul Ahad Parra in a statement issued to a local news agency, GNS on Friday said.

“How can one expect the security of human rights in a state where even courts are not honored,” Parra said, adding that League severely condemns the continuous detention of Masrat Alam Bhat, Mushtaq-ul-Islam, Molvi Sajad Ahmad Nagoo, Mir Hafizullah and Shakeel Ahmad Bhat.

He said if government is having a human heart they should release the Hurriyat activists before Eid-ul-Zuha. “The families of these prisoners have pinned hope that they will meet their loved ones on this blessed festival,” League General Secretary said, adding government should release them forthwith before Eid.

Muslim League has also appealed international human rights organizations to press for the release of all the political prisoners immediately.
