Let concerned about Kashmiri prisoners


Srinagar:  Militant outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) Friday said the condition of Kashmiri people lodged in Indian jails is pitable and it needs to be condemned. “Prisoners in every jail of the world enjoy rights but in Indian jail the situation is totally different.

“Political prisoners of Jammu and Kashmir caged in different Indian jails get no medical facilities. They are confined to cells, are served inadequate or under-cooked food containing harmful chemicals that makes them mentally unsound,” LeT spokesperson Doctor Abdullah Ghaznavi while quoting Lashkar Chief Mehmood Shah said.

“We appeal to International Human Rights Organization and people friendly outfits from India to take cognizance and force India to provide all kinds of facilities to the inmates. The Kashmiri prisoners like Dr Muhammad Qasim Faktoo, Masrat Aalam Bhat, Ghulam Qadir Bhat, Tariq Ahmed Dar, Dr Shafi, Showkat Hakim, Fayaz Talaq, Rashid Sangeen, Talib Lali, Muzaffar Dawood and others who are sick need medical attention,” the statement dispatched to Srinagar based news agency CNS said.

The statement reads that LeT Chief asked people of Jammu and Kashmir to pray for the mother of Shaheed Maqbool Bhat who is seriously ill.
