Srinagar: While terming the shifting of under trail detainees outside the valley as an worst example of state-terrorism, All Parties Hurriyat Conference said PDP-BJP collation government are frustrated by the current mass uprising and now they are targeting the whole populace for this.
Puppet government in valley has crossed all its inhuman and brutal tactics to suppress them. Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed a brute and criminal face of the Indian state in the past 100 days and now they have started shifting of under trail detainees to outside valley. Recently Hakim Showkat Ahmad, Hilal Ahmad Paul, Nazir Ahmad Lone, Bashir Ahmad Najar, Abdul Hamid Mir, Aaqib Ahmad Mir etc to Poonch and Rajouri jails, previously Hurriyat leader Masarat Aalam Bhat was also shifted to Kuthwa jail.
Hurriyat said that this shifting doesn’t have any justification and this action is out of political vengeance. Supreme Court of India has passed a ruling that a detainee should be held in the nearest jail to his home and an under trial should never be shifted to any other place, because he can’t reach to the every hearing of the court which will prolong his detention.
Strongly condemning the use of PSA like black law against a common people, Hurriyat said that this law has been termed as “Law Less Law” by Amnesty International while as world bodies have rejected the prolonged imprisonment of any person in the name of preventive custody, but this draconian law is very commonly used in Jammu and Kashmir to curb the genuine voices of the people.
Neither any trail is held against them nor is any proper reason given for their detention. Hurriyat Conference appealed the world community that they should raise their voice against the unabated use of PSA by Jammu and Kashmir government. (CNS)
