Srinagar, August 04, 2022 (PPI-OT):In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) senior leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, today, completed three years of continued illegal house detention. The authorities have kept Mirwaiz under house arrest since August 04, 2019, a day before the Modi regime revoked the special status of IIOJK.
APHC in a statement issued in Srinagar strongly condemned the arbitrary, despotic and extrajudicial act of the authorities of forcibly detaining Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, leading to gross violation of all his fundamental human rights. All channels of communication are blocked to him and all outreach to people, friends and party cadre, barred, it deplored.
It said, it seems APHC senior leader is being punished for pleading the cause of resolution of the lingering Kashmir dispute through peaceful means of dialogue and deliberations, and good neighbourly relations in the region. APHC appealed to the Indian government to release all Kashmiri political prisoners and resume the process of conflict resolution through peaceful means, which is dialogue.
