Record of Cruelty, Oppressive Measures Surpassed by PDP: DFP



Hurriyat (g) constituent Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) on Thursday said the present administration has surpassed all the “records of cruelty and oppressiveness of its predecessors.”

Expressing strong resentment over the continuous arrest of separatist leadership and activists, a DFP spokesperson said, “at the behest of so-called rulers, the police have unleashed such a reign of terror in the state that every soul considers itself in a virtual jail.”

Lashing out at state administration, the spokesperson said the reports of fresh arrests are reaching from nook and corner of the state. “The pro-freedom leadership and activists are being arrested in nocturnal raids and the house inmates are harassed.  Everyone is feeling insecure. This is a big blow on the claims of the so-called champions of democracy.”

The spokesperson added, “every genuine voice in the state is suppressed and choked and there is no place for the freedom of speech and expression.”

Strongly condemning the continuous house arrest of Syed Ali Geelani, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Muhammad Yasin Malik and Zafar Akbar Bhat, the DFP statement said, “Shabir Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Syedah Aasiya Andrabi, Mehrajuddin Kalwal and Ayaz Akbar are continuously kept in police stations.” “Such curbs cannot break the resolve of pro-freedom leadership.”

The DFP spokesperson expressed serious concern over the arrest of party activists from Islamabad, Pulwama, Srinagar, Sopore, Kulgam, Shopian and other areas and the nocturnal raids on their residences. “Freedom Party’s Naseer Ahmad (Sopore), Bashir Ahmad, Muhammad Amin and others are kept detained in police stations for weeks and are treated very badly there.”
