NIA Files Ridiculous Chargesheet against Aasiya Andrabi, Others

New Delhi, November 15 (Kashmir Voice): India’s National Investigation Agency, notorious for implicating Kashmiri Hurriyat leaders in fake cases, has filed a ridiculous charge-sheet against Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi, and her two associates Sofi Fehmeeda and Naheeda Nasreen in an NIA Court in New Delhi.
According to media sources, the three Kashmiri women leaders were arrested by the NIA in June 2018 and are lodged in Tihar Jail, Delhi, since then. The NIA, in total oblivion from the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir, in its press statement in New Delhi said that DeM had been inciting the general populace of Kashmir for secession of Jammu and Kashmir from India. The charge, by experts on Kashmir dispute, is seen is ridiculous and nonsensical as overwhelming majority of the territory never considers Kashmir as part of India and they are unanimously demanding their right to self-determination as acknowledged by the United Nations in its number of resolutions passed, off and on. The NIA in charge-sheet said, “The above accused were using various media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, TV Channels including channels in Pakistan to spread insurrectionary imputations and hateful messages and speeches against India. DeM through Aasiya Andrabi and others openly advocates secession of Jammu & Kashmir from India and its merger with Pakistan …” The statement said that on 27th of April 2018, a case was registered in NIA Police Station, Delhi against Aasiya Andrabi, Sofi Fehmeeda, Naheeda Nasreen and other DeM leaders. Interestingly, Aasiya Andrabi like other Hurriyat leaders have been openly speaking up her mind about the disputed status of Kashmir, but NIA in its charge-sheet said, “Investigation has established that Aasiya Andrabi is heading Dukhtaran-e-Millat as its chief and has used social media and other platforms to abet waging of war against India.” “She is spreading seditious and insurrectionary imputations against India. She is promoting ill-will and enmity between different communities in India on ground of religion. …She has used public platforms to incite youth of Kashmir to rise in armed insurrection against India with an object of achieving cessation of Kashmir from India and its merger with Pakistan,” the statement claimed. The NIA has almost leveled the same allegations against the other two party leaders —Sofi Fehmeeda and Naheeda Nasreen. The agency said that Fehmeeda and Naheeda had been instrumental in use of social media and other platforms to abet waging of war against the Indian government. “Upon investigation and collection of evidence, the above mentioned accused persons have been charge-sheeted while further investigation against other members and associates of Dukhtaran-e-Millat are under way,” the statement read.

Judicial Victimization of Kashmiri Detainees at Peak: Gilani

Srinagar, November 15 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani has expressed serious concern over the pathetic conditions being faced by the Kashmiri prisoners saying that judicial victimization of the Kashmiri political detainees is at peak in and outside the territory.
According to media sources, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said, despite being political prisoners they are denied every right guaranteed in the local or international jail manual. “Revengeful attitude of the rulers in Delhi has crossed every limit of heartlessness and in sensitivity. They willfully prolong their stay in jails through their judicial victimization,” he added. Gilani said, “Slow and humiliating judicial process has ruined the life of so many young innocents” and he cited examples of Tariq Ahmad Dar, Mohammad Rafiq Owasi, Iqbal Jan, Samiullah Sheikh and others who were declared innocent after a long period of more than a decade. He said the ghost of NIA is threatening every Kashmiri and this much-hyped investigative institution “has dug so low to pave its worse in every trivial issue without any documentary proof.” Those arrested on fake charges, he said, are yet to be augmented with the documentary evidence of their ‘crimes’. The octogenarian leader said that Sang Parivaar was only prolonging their custody using judicial fools. He deplored that Shabbir Ahamad Shah, Peer Saifullah, Altaf Ahamad Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Raja Meraj-ud-Din Kalwal, Nayeem Ahamad Khan, Shahid-ul-Islam, Farooq Ahamad Dar, Shahid Yousaf, Syed Shakeel Ahmad, Zahoor Ahamad Watali, Asia Andrabi, Fahmeedah Sofi, Naheeda Nasreen continued to bear the brunt of this victimization for more than a year, now. Similarly for the last 9 years, Dr. GM Butt is languishing in Tihar. Extending his gratitude to the unwavering commitment and the resolve displayed by the young Hurriyat leaders Masarrat Aalam Butt and Mohammad Yousuf Falahi, Syed Ali Gilani regretted the denial of justice to the prisoners of conscience. Slapping of draconian Public Safety Act for the 37 times on Masarrat Aalam Butt and about a dozen PSAs on Mohammad Yousuf Falahi has created a history of non compliance of the judicial orders, he added. He said that judicial victimization of Kashmir detainees is at peak and pro-freedom leaders and workers are subjugated to dozens of PSA on the self-favored charges. These detainees include Ghulam Qadir Butt, Ghulam Mohammad Khan Sopori, Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar, Hakeem Abdul Rashid, Nisar Hussain Rather, Mohammad Ayoub Mir, Showkat Ahmad Khan, Mohammad Yousuf Mir, Abdul Ghani Butt, Nazir Ahmad Dentar, Bilal Ahmad Kota, Mohammad Ayoub Dar, Feroz Ahmad Butt, Tariq Ahmad Butt, Bashir Ahmad Qureshi, Umar Aadil Dar, Shabbir Ahmad Dar, Shakeel Ahmad Bakshi, Ashiq Hussian Butt, Basharat Ahmad Mir, Manzoor Ahmad Najar, Riyaz Ahmad Dar, Lateef Ahmad Rather, Lateef Ahmad Dar, Showkat Ahmad Ganie, Mushtaq Ahmad Ganie, Sajad Ahmad Butt, Mushtaq Ul Islam, Asadullah Parray, Farooq Tawheedi, Bilal Ahmad Ganie, Riyaz Ahmad Ahanger, Hakeem Showkat, Meraj-ud-Din Gojri, Sajad Molvi, Abdul Majeed Butt, Farooq Ahmad Shah, Abdul Rashid Magloo, Sheikh Mohammad Ramzan, Ashiq Hussain Narchoor, Sartaj Ahmad, Siraj-ud-din and others.

According to media sources, Engineer Rasheed in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “People of Jammu should rise to the occasion and isolate these elements, who are bent upon destroying the traditional brotherhood of the territory.” He termed it unfortunate that these activists were spreading hatred against the Muslim community and their religion in broad daylight under total patronage of Sang Parivar.
