Srinagar, June 15 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, a five-member delegation of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM) led by its Chairman, Mir Shahid Saleem, met the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, at his residence in Srinagar.
According to media sources, Mir Shahid Saleem apprised Syed Ali Gilani of the latest socio-political scenario prevailing across the Jammu region. He told the APHC Chairman that the Muslims of Jammu were living in an environment of harassment and intimidation as members of Hindu extremist organisations like Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Bajrang Dal were enjoying the complete support and patronage of the state machinery. The JKPM Chairman said that anti-Muslim forces and groups were being provided modern assault weaponry and training. He added that Muslim population was being pushed to the wall not only by the anti-Muslim forces but the occupation authorities were also playing the same role. The APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, on the occasion appreciated the role being played by the Muslims of Jammu in the ongoing freedom movement and said that they had been making supreme sacrifices since 1947. He urged the Muslims of the region to forge greater unity among their ranks to frustrate the nefarious designs of the communal forces. KASHMIR VOICE
Srinagar, June 15 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has strongly condemned the sending of its illegally detained Chairman, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, to judicial custody after ten days of interrogation.
According to media sources, the DFP in a statement issued in Srinagar said that Shabbir Shah was being asked same questions again and again since he was arrested in July 2017. It said the investigating agencies have miserably failed to establish anything adverse against Shabbir Shah who believes in politics only. It is now the duty of the judiciary to uphold the values of justice by releasing him, the statement said. The DFP said it is highly condemnable that Shabbir Shah is being victimized only for advocating the resolution of Kashmir dispute through political means and New Delhi is hell bent to crush his political voice.
