India has converted Jammu and Kashmir into a big jail: Gilani
Indian police arrested many Hurriyet leaders and activists during a protest demonstration in Srinagar against arrest of innocent youth by Indian police and killing of civilians at the hands of the members of Indian Army-backed terrorist militia, Village Defense Committees.
According to media sources, the demonstration was held at Press Colony and was participated by Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Yasmeen Raja, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Firdous Ahmad Shah, Abdul Ahad Parra, Molvi Bashir Ahmad, Muhammad Ramzan Khan, Muhammad Rafiq Ganai, Muhammad Yasin Attai, Imtiaz Ahmad Shah, Abdur Rasheed Lone, Syed Imtiaz Haider, Engineer Farooq and others.
The police used brute force against the protesters and arrested dozens of Hurriyet leaders and activists including Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Firdous Ahmad Shah, Abdul Ahad Parra and Muhammad Yasin Attai. The detainees were lodged at Kothi Bagh Police station in Srinagar.
Earlier, the leaders addressing the protesters called for disbanding of the Village Defense Committees and release of arrested Hurriyet leaders and activists.
The puppet administration also put Hurriyet leaders, Meraj-ud-Din Kalwal, Altaf Ahmed Shah and Muhammad Ayaz Akbar under house detention to prevent them from participating in anti-India demonstrations.
Meanwhile, senior Hurriyet leader, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi addressing a Seerat conference at Meergund in Badgam denounced the arrest of Hurriyet leaders on fake charges, continued house detention of Syed Ali Gilani and killing of civilians by members of Village Defense Committees. He also expressed condolences with Hurriyet leader, Aasiya Andrabi, over the death of her mother.
Muslim Deeni Mahaz (MDM) has condemned the inhuman treatment meted out to the relatives of Kashmiri detainees by the police in Indian state of Rajasthan.
According to media sources, the MDM provincial President, Maulana Nisar Ahmad, in a statement issued in Srinagar said that relatives of two Kashmiri detainees, Latif Ahmad Waza and Abdul Ghani Goni, had gone to Rajasthan to meet them, but they were treated in a derogatory way by the police. He described this treatment by the police as humiliation of all Kashmiri Muslims.
“People are being humiliated and oppressed. It is the same tactic that has been followed by oppressive regimes for centuries. These two men are incarcerated in Rajasthan jail for the past two decades during this period they lost many of their kith and kin. These men are braving all these hardships for the Kashmir cause. We salute their steadfastness and pray for their immediate release,” Maulana Nisar added.
the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, has said that the Kashmiris have always upheld rich cultural traditions and moral values like politeness, brotherhood and modesty throughout their history.
According to media sources, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “Whatever is being thrust upon us in the name of New Year celebrations has nothing to do with our rich social values and traditions. It is just cultural aggression aimed at detaching us from our religion, society, freedom movement and our rich past.” He urged people, especially youth, not to participate in the celebrations.
“Islam, being the religion of nature, doesn’t oppose or ban excursions, but everything in the universe has limits, and Muslims should not cross those limits.”
He said that the western culture was being rejected by even the westerners. “This so-called modern civilisation has destroyed the social set-up of man and has reduced him to the level of an animal. The western people are running away from their wild civilisation, taking refuge in Islam, but some cheap people are still copying them,” he added.
