Authorities use all means to suppress Kashmiris: Mirwaiz
Srinagar, November 16, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has said that the authorities are leaving no stone unturned to suppress the voices of Kashmiris.
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who has been placed under house arrest in Srinagar in a statement termed his arrest and imposition of restrictions on his peaceful political social and religious activities as cheap dictatorial tactics on part of the authorities.
He deplored that bullets were being showered on peaceful protesters and mourners, adding that the authorities were using all means to crush the people staging peaceful demonstrations against the killings and grave injustices. By putting people and Hurriyat leadership in jails or imprisoning them in their houses, authorities were violating all the basic human and democratic values, he said.
Mirwaiz said that such tyrannical step also depicted the frustration of authorities. Such steps also make it clear that there was no space for peaceful protests in Kashmir, he added.
Meanwhile, APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar condemned the house arrest of Mirwaiz and several leaders including Maulana Abbas Ansari, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza and arrest of Engineer Hilal Ahmad War and Hakim Abdul Rashid.
