Srinagar, March 16, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC), Syed Ali Gilani has expressed concern over the arrest spree, slapping of draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) on religious scholar, Mushataq Ahmad Veeri and Jamaat-e-Islami activists.
Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “Repressive measures against peaceful and unarmed civilians including resistance leaders and activists are condemnable. The coercive measures will yield nothing but devastation, he added. He said the repressive actions against the freedom-loving people have failed on all fronts to suppress the people’s freedom sentiments during the past 71 years especially since 1989 and in future as well.
Decrying the conduct of the Indian government as highly unfortunate and unacceptable, the APHC Chairman said, “The authorities are hell bent to curb and strangulate the genuine aspirations and political voice for the right to self-determination”. Hailing the commitment, persistence and unshakable resolve of people in Kashmir, Syed Ali Gilani said the peoples’ urge to settle Kashmir dispute has touched the pinnacle and freedom movement emerged as invincible.
