Srinagar, October 18, 2012 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC) leader and Chief Patron of Jammu Kashmir Mahaz-e-Azadi (MeA), Muhammad Azam Inqilabi has strongly condemned the brutal torture on senior liberation leader, Mushtaq-ul-Islam at Udhampur Jail in Jammu.
Muhammad Azam Inqilabi in a statement issued in Srinagar was reacting to a report of Kashmir Bar Association about plight of inmates in various jails of the territory. “
Denying inmates to offer congregational prayers and forcing them to recite polytheistic songs is interference in religion and unacceptable,” he added.
According to reports Mushtaq-ul-Islam received head injuries after he was beaten up for refusing to be part of a drill, which he termed against his faith. “We demand that the CRPF personnel who attacked Mushtaq be given exemplary punishment and all prisoners be shifted to the valley,” Inqilabi said.
