Srinagar—Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir has expressed strong resentment over the arrest of its spokesperson and Ameer-e-Tehsil Kulgam by government forces yesterday and terms it condemnable and sheer frustration of authorities.

Jama’at said police yesterday arrested Advocate Zahid Ali (Spokesperson of Jama’at) along with Farooq Ahmad Sheikh (Ameer-e-Tehsil Kulgam) at Gopalpora Kulgam after attending a condolence meet there. These arrests have been made on the arbitrary directions of concerned SP which vindicates how much power is being misused by the people at helm and the allegations leveled against the duo are baseless and fabricated. These arrests depict government and its machinery is hell bent to create vague atmosphere in the state of Jammu and Kashmir in order to crush the sentiment of people who are demanding its fundamental and birth right ‘right to self determination’ accepted by both India and Pakistan before international community. The leaders were detained under section 13 of Unlawful activities first at PS Kulgam and later shifted to PS Damhal Hanjipora.
