‘Escalating’ Indo-Pak tensions matter of serious concern: Hurriyat Conference (M)
Srinagar: Expressing serious concern over the “escalating tensions” between the armies of India and Pakistan especially in Poonch and Rajouri sector, Hurriyat Conference (M) on Monday said that every time there is exchange of firing on the LoC, people on the both sides of fence become the primary target and bear the brunt.
The Hurriyat Conference said that the lingering Kashmir issue was the main reason of rift between two countries and until it is resolved amicably, the bitterness between them won’t end.
Demanding the rollback of “anti-people” highway closure order, the amalgam which is headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq stated that it has caused immense hardships for the common masses.
It strongly denounced the shifting of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik already under PSA from Jammu Jail to New Delhi and handing him over to NIA and also the ED summon to the minor daughters of resistance leader Shabir Ahmed Shah and shifting of resistance and religious leaders to Haryana jail.
The Hurriyat conference said that shifting of prisoners to outside prisons was against the Geneva Convention and also the Supreme Court of India rulings that stresses on lodging the inmates in jails closer to their homes. It said shifting prisoners to jails that are thousands of kilometers away from their homes has added more to the worries of relatives of inmates who are facing tremendous hardships in seeking permission to meet their dear ones.
