Srinagar, November 16 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the puppet authorities have booked the illegally detained senior APHC leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League (JKML), Masarrat Aalam Butt, under draconian law, Public Safety Act (PSA), for the 36th time.
According to media sources, the High Court of the occupied territory had on 26th October, 2017 quashed detention of Masarrat Aalam under the 35th PSA and ordered his release. However, Indian police had re-arrested him on November 10 from Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu immediately after his release. The fresh PSA orders against Masarrat Aalam Butt were issued by the Deputy Commissioner of Kupwara. The JKML Chairman has again been lodged at Kot Bhalwal Jail. A JKML spokesman in a statement in Srinagar while strongly condemning the slapping of yet another PSA on the party Chairman said that the occupation authorities were taking court orders casually as if the said orders had no sanctity. It is to mention here that Masarrat Aalam Butt was arrested in October 2010 for spearheading mass uprising that year and since then, barring a few weeks, he has been under illegal detention.

Srinagar, November 16 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the Hurriyat forum and the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) have condemned the abusive statement of the pro-India National Conferences (NC) against senior resistance leader, Syed Ali Gilani.
According to media sources, the spokesmen of Hurriyat forum and JKLF in a joint statement issued in Srinagar said Syed Ali Gilani is a respected senior politician and resistance leader and fielding a junior turncoat like Junaid Mattoo on the job of hurling invectives on him reflects the moral bankruptcy of such people. They said since out of power too long NC like fish out of water is writhing and hence employing its signature underhand and malicious ways and means of realizing that cherished ambition, displaying total insensitivity and disregard for the suffering and sacrifices of the people and their sacred freedom struggle. The spokesman said that unfortunately the hunger for the chair and its entailing “aash o aaram” of this opportunistic and unscrupulous group, has since 1947 been the nemesis of the people of Kashmir when they were first backstabbed, and since then are in continuous grind of subjugation and occupation, paying dearly each day. They said that as part of their single point “kursi Wapsi” agenda, the NC is once again playing dirty politics to gain some space, part of which is to divert attention from the main issue and the consequent repression on people, by maligning and defaming leadership representing and associated with the resolution of Kashmir dispute in accordance with the people’s will and based on principles.

Srinagar, November 15 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference asking the pro-India politicians to shun their fraudulent and deceitful politics has said that the Kashmiri people while pursuing their rightful cause have presented unprecedented sacrifices and are fully aware about all those stooges helping the forced occupation.
According to media sources, an APHC spokesman in a statement in Srinagar while referring to resistance movement and sacrifices presented by the Kashmiris said that since 1931, six lakh people were massacred and properties worth billions destroyed. “These sacrifices were not offered to support any particular party or dynasty,” he added. The spokesman criticized the former puppet chief minister and pro-India National Conference leader, Omar Abdullah, for his remarks against the APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani. He said, hypocrisy and treachery is the trait of National Conference. “People and particularly youth are fully aware of the treacherous role played by NC leadership. The NC since its inception has been playing deceit and folly and people of Jammu Kashmir are fully aware of its role,” he said. The spokesman said, the life and contribution of Syed Ali Gilani is an open book. He asked all pro-India local parties and their leadership to study entire record of so-called Kashmir Assembly and see that Syed Ali Gilani has never accepted Jammu and Kashmir as an integral part of India. The spokesman while defining the role played by Muslim United Front and its participation in the elections held in the occupied territory in 1987 said, “MUF in a civilised and democratic way of achieving freedom, participated in those elections; however, through mass rigging, Indian authorities denied this democratic right and with the full support and blessings of New Delhi, NC grabbed power, particularly for their folly and bullying.” The APHC asked Omar Abdullah to explain about the “freedom mission” his grandfather followed and that “when did Syed Ali Gilani begged for a berth in power corridors”. “Syed Ali Gilani dedicated his entire life for the sacred cause of Kashmir’s freedom and even at ninety is pursuing this mission with full dedication,” he said, adding, “Sheikh Abdullah played with the sentiments of his people to secure material gains for his dynasty. We will never allow anybody to play with the sentiments of people.” Meanwhile, the APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, in a statement paid rich tributes to the youth, Tayyeb Majeed and Ashiq Hussain, who were martyred by Indian troops in a fake encounter in Handwara on Monday. He said that the Kashmiri youth were laying down their precious lives for a sacred cause and the Kashmiri people would continue their mission till it reached its logical end. KASHMIR VOICE
