Thrashing of Kashmiri Prisoners in Tihar, Kathua Jails Flayed

Srinagar, December 02 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, APHC leaders, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash and Hakeem Abdul Rasheed have strongly condemned the ill-treatment and ruthless thrashing of Kashmiri prisoners in Delhi’s Tihar jail and Kathua Jail of Jammu by the jail authorities.
According to media sources, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash and Hakeem Abdul Rasheed addressing a public gathering at Bakhshipora in Srinagar said that miserable condition and inhuman treatment meted out to the Kashmiri prisoners in different jails was a matter of grave concern. They said that the Kashmiri detainees were political prisoners and were entitled to proper health care, security and dignity under Geneva conventions. They appealed to the international human rights organizations to take such inhuman treatment of Kashmiri political prisoners seriously and exert pressure on India for their safety, proper health care and dignity and play role for shifting them from Indian jails to occupied Kashmir. Expressing dismay over the announcement of authorities to issue new type of identity proofs in Kashmir, they said the step is aimed to divide the people of Kashmir and will be opposed tooth and nail. They said: “special one-stop identity cards” for all Kashmiris to make the surveillance and movements of the citizens easier for occupied forces is a conspiracy against the people of Kashmir under which freedom-loving people would be brought to suppression. Meanwhile, the President of Employees’ Joint Action Committee (EJAC), Abdul Qayoom Wani, in a statement in Srinagar condemned the murderous attack on Kashmiri prisoners in Tihar Jail and termed it a shameful and inhuman act. “This is the prime duty of jail authorities to protect the life of prisoners and treat them humanly. But such incidents speak volumes of discriminatory attitude of authorities of Tihar jail which should be condemned by every human being,” he added. KASHMIR VOICE
