Srinagar, July 26: Hurriyat (G) conference on Thursday strongly condemned the arrest spree in various areas of Kashmir accusing the government of declaring “war on people.”
According to a statement, TeH leader Bashir Ahmad Qureshi was arrested and lodged in Sopore police station. The spokesman alleged that police in night raids harassed family members of pro-freedom leader Mohammad Rafiq Gania, saying he after prolonged detention in various jails was released a few weeks back, however, police are again raiding his residence and harassing inmates.
“Such suppressive steps would never dislodge the resistance leaders from taking the struggle to its logical conclusion,” Hurriyat said.
Army and police have intensified the search night raids in entire central state and have formally launched a crackdown on resistance leadership and common youth said Hurriyat.
The statement said that its leader Mohammad Yusuf Falahi was arrested during people’s movement in 2016, however, his bail plea was rejected without assigning any proper reason, the statement added.
It is a murder of justice, saying the biased approach of the judiciary is more painful,” Hurriyat said in a statement.
“If the pro-freedom people are not allowed to present their viewpoint, or get justice then what kind of judiciary is this?” Hurriyat asked.
