Srinagar, January 22, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders including Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, Imtiaz Ahmad Reshi, Ghulam Nabi War and Ghulam Nabi Waseem have expressed serious concern over the continued illegal detention of ailing Hurriyat leader, Peer Saifullah.
Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, Imtiaz Ahmad Reshi, Ghulam Nabi War and Ghulam Nabi Waseem in their statements said, Peer Saifullah underwent surgery for a tumor in his head and therefore needs regular consultation with the specialist doctor who performed surgery in Delhi but unfortunately he is being denied the necessary medicines and checkup which is causing a serious threat to his life.
“Peer Saifullah is a known political leader who believes in peaceful resolution of all disputes so international organizations must intervene and ensure his release from illegal detention as early as possible so that his life can be saved,” they said. The leaders also expressed concern over the falling health of a Hurriyat activist, Sirajuddin, who despite release orders by High Court has been shifted to Baramulla jail.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, in a statement in Srinagar deplored the miserable plight of the illegally detained Kashmiris languishing in different jails. He appealed to the world human rights bodies to impress upon India to release all Kashmiri detainees without any further delay. A JKPL delegation visited Sopore and met Hurriyat leader, Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori, who was recently released from over 22 months illegal detention.
