Srinagar, August 21, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, senior leader of the All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC) and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party, Shabbir Ahmad Shah has expressed serious concern over the invoking of draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) on Maulvi Abdul Qayoom and described it as frustration of the authorities. Shabbir Ahmad Shah in a statement issued in Srinagar said that DFP was striving for political rights of the people of all regions of, Kashmir and acknowledged Kashmir as a dispute. He said: “We are totally against the division of people on the linguistic, religious and regional lines.”
He said to divide the territory on religious lines is the agenda of Sangh Parivar. Maulvi Abdul Qayoom is a renowned Hurriyet leader and sending him to jail without any reason was injustice. It is a sheer injustice that those who massacred innocent Muslims are roaming free but innocent Maulana Abdul Qayoom was sent to jail.
Shabbir Shah also demanded the immediate disbanding and disarming of Village Defence Committees (VDCs) members.
