Srinagar, May 10, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the authorities placed the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, under house arrest in Srinagar, today. Heavy posse of Indian policemen deployed at the residence of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq informed him not to come out. The action has been taken to prevent him from visiting Sopore and attend the delegate session of the Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference, a constituent of the APHC.
The Mirwaiz in a statement strongly denouncing the curbs on political activities of Hurriyet leaders said that such tactics could not subdue their resolve to continue the freedom struggle till it reached its logical conclusion.
