“Mirwaiz continues to be under house arrest”: says Hurriyat Conference, appeals people to show patience

-

- Advertisment -

Hurriyat Conference (M), on Friday, said that it’s chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq continues to be under house arrest, notwithstanding authorities announcement of releasing him after twenty month long house detention since August 2019.

“Government authorities went back on their decision,” reads a statement by Hurriyat Conference.

“Late last night police officials visited the Mirwaiz’s residence to convey to him that he continues to be under house arrest , and will not be allowed to go to Jamiaa Masjid for Friday prayers and Majlis waz-o-tableeg todaym” the statement said

“And since early morning additional forces have been deployed outside his house and in the area converting it into a garrison.” the statement added.

The amalgam said that it strongly condemns the authoritarian “flip flop” of the Government.

“Recently in the Indian parliament Government of India’s Minister of State for Home Affairs had categorically stated that no one in Jammu & Kashmir is under house arrest. If that is so why does the Mirwaiz continue to be detained?” The Hurriyat statement read.

The Hurriyat Conference said that this “imperious decision” of the authorities has hurt the sentiments of people and further aggrieved them “as they were eagerly awaiting the Mirwaiz’s release from arbitrary house arrest.”

The Hurriyat Conference appealed to people that “they should not lose hope and show patience and at no cost resort to any form of violent protest.” (GNS)
