Srinagar, August 15 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani has condemned the attack on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student leader, Umar Khalid, in broad daylight during a function in New Delhi saying that such lawlessness and hooliganism if not checked and stopped will have catastrophic effects for India.
According to media sources, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar while terming the incident as yet another example of communal vandalism said that communal and fascist forces in India had never tolerated the existence of those standing for peace, justice and equal rights. He pointed out that the people who individually or collectively raised their voice and showed some concern about the basic and fundamental rights were being targeted, assaulted, tortured and even killed in present-day India. Syed Ali Gilani further said majoritarian hegemony and highhandedness have crossed all the limits and the monster of intolerance and hatred is growing bigger and bigger with each passing day. “Saffron brigade on the behest and encouragement of rogues in power have made the life of every sane and conscious person’s life miserable,” he added. The APHC Chairman cautioned the Indian rulers that this lawlessness and hooliganism if not checked and stopped would have catastrophic effects on the very existence of India. KASHMIR VOICE

Srinagar, August 15 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, amid growing uproar over inhuman treatment meted out to Kashmiri detainees in different Indian jails, the High Court of the territory has directed all Principal District Judges (PDJs) to submit reports online on the condition of jails within their jurisdiction to the Registry of the Court.
According to media sources, a division bench of Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Alok Aradhe stressing that the district judges were required to submit the reports regularly after inspecting the jails, held that in the interest of justice such reports needed to be submitted online. “We therefore direct the Central Project Coordinator (CPC), e-courts attached to this court to take steps for the development of appropriate software at the earliest so that proper scrutiny of the compliance can effectively be conducted,” the bench said. The court directed its Registrar Judicial to prepare a compilation of the status reports which various PDJs submit in keeping with the Criminal Procedure Code and directions of the High Court. Following the submission by Advocate Mian Abdul Qayoom appearing on behalf of the Kashmir High Court Bar Association that he had not received the copies of the status reports filed by the PDJs, the court ordered that the reports be furnished to him within a week. After advocate Mian Qayoom drew attention of the court to the report submitted by PDJ Srinagar with regard to under-trials including the juveniles who are not being produced before the courts, the court directed him to immediately compile such list to enable the court to take action for non-compliance of directions.
