Mirwaiz competes 20 months under House Arrest: Hurriyat Conference

-

- Advertisment -

All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) on Monday said that its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq completed 20 months in house detention. Mirwaiz was put under house arrest on 4th August 2019.

APHC in a statement issued to News Agency Kashmir Dot Com (KDC) said, “We have been repeatedly demanding the release of our chairman who is arbitrarily detained at his home, his basic human and civil rights and liberties being suspended by the state.”

As the holy month of Ramadan draws near, APHC asked the authorities to release Mirwaiz and all other political prisoners who according to them are arbitrarily detained in various jails and detention centers across J&K and in various states of the country.

They said, “As is the centuries old tradition, its chairman being the Mirwaiz of J&K has religious obligations to be fulfilled, particularly during the holy month of Ramadan. So until he is released from home detention he cannot carry them out.”

APHC urged the authorities to release him and all other prisoners without delay and allow the people of Kashmir to observe the holy month of Ramadan with their loved ones and without creating what they call as obstacles and hurting the sentiments of Muslims by keeping Mirwaiz under detention.
