Shah is being punished for his unprecedented role in ongoing struggle: Saghar

Islamabad:  Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has strongly condemned the denial of bail to its illegally detained Chairman, Shabir Ahmed Shah, who continues to languishing in Tihar Jail over the last three and a half years.

The DFP Acting Chairman, Mehmood Ahmed Saghar, in a statement issued here on Friday said that Indian occupation authorities have since long been using detentions as a weapon to punish and persecute Kashmiri Hurriyat leaders for the expression of their conscientiously held political beliefs and for raising the voice against the injustices and indiscrimination meted out to the people of Jammu and Kashmir at the hands of Indian authorities.

Terming Shah’s illegal detention as sheer vengeance he said that Shabir Ahmed Shah was being victimized for his unprecedented role in the Kashmiris ongoing struggle for right to self-determination.

“Denial of bail is not new for Shah Sahib, he had faced detentions and spent more than half of his life in the Indian jails. Indian secret agencies have been booking Shah Sahib under fake charges since 1968 but not a single allegation has been proved in any court of law”, Saghar said adding that he was arrested by ED authorities in 2017 under fictitious cases and sent to New Delhi’s Tihar Jail.

“Nearly four years have passed but ED authorities have badly failed in proving a single allegation against him so far”, the DFP leader said adding that it was quite astonishing that rather deciding the case on merit Indian so-called judges were asking strange questions that have nothing to do with the case.

Saghar while lauding Shah’s political will and steadfastness said that such mean tactics meant to linger on his detention won’t help Indians to break his political will. The DFP leader urged the international human rights organizations to take notice of the continued detention of Shah and influence the government of India to stop persecution of the Kashmir political prisoners on the basis of the political beliefs.
