Chairman of Ummat-e-Islami, Qazi Ahmed Yasir has denounced the arrest and harassment of civilians by Indian forces across the territory.
According to media sources, Qazi Ahmed Yasir addressing a mammoth gathering in Jamia Masjid of Kund area in Islamabad town, condemned the continued confinement of Hurriyet leadership and demanded their release.
He urged the people of India to support the Kashmir resistance movement and not watch Kashmir through the spectrum of propagandist Indian media. He said that not all, but most of the media outlets in India was running a propaganda campaign against everyone who was dissenting against the ultra nationalists.
He said that the government of India rather than listening to the aspirations and slogans of the resilient people was trying to dilute the issue which must be a matter of concern to humans and human rights bodies around the world.
Qazi Yasir urged the people not to speak to anybody who come as filmmakers, researchers or even musicians regarding the Kashmir dispute. The people are coming with an agenda to dilute our genuine narrative and identify the potential elements especially in South Kashmir, he added. He condemned the ultra nationalism that is being spread through news channels of India.
He demanded release of all political prisoners including Aasiya Andrabi, Dr Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo, Maulana Sarjan Barkati, Sajad Hashmi, Ghulam Qadir Wani, Mehmood Topiwal, Peer Mohammed Ashraf and Fayaz Ahmed Talaq.
