Srinagar, January 13, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the forum patronised by the veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has strongly condemned the continued illegal detention of Hurriyet leader, Masarrat Aalam Butt, demanding his immediate release.
The forum spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the detention orders against Masarrat Aalam Butt were a sheer violation of law and exposed the hollow claims of the Indian government.
He appealed to the international human rights organisations particularly the Amnesty International to intervene in the matter and put pressure on India to stop human rights violations in the occupied territory and resolve the lingering Kashmir dispute in accordance with the Kashmiris’ aspirations.
