Srinagar: Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) has condemned the arrest of Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC) leaders including its president, Abdul Qayoum Wani and his associates.
President DAK Dr G M Mir said that peaceful sit in protest by EJAC against civilian killings and day to day harassment in no way is criminal under any law. It is unfortunate that people are being detained for lodging even a peaceful protest.
"Government Employees and emergency services in particular are performing their duties under continuous threat and fear but it’s quite unfortunate that we are being detained even for lodging peaceful protrets. One side Government is issuing orders for all Govt. Employees to join duties but the ground reality is extremely tense which only a common man is in know. Now that when authorities are being apprised about the ground reality they are being unheard and detained which is deplorable and strongly condemnable" said Dr Mir Mushtaq Spokesperson DAK. He has demanded for immediate release of the EJAC leaders. (CNS)
