Srinagar, September 01, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the forum led by the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has strongly condemned the venomous propaganda unleashed by the extremist Hindu organization, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and its partners against Muslims. A spokesman for the forum in a statement issued in Srinagar after its meeting in Srinagar said, “Hue and cry raised by the RSS and its allied communal and fascist partners over the increase in the population of Muslims in India is meaningless and reflection of their frustration.”
The issue, he added, came up for discussion at the meeting of Advisory Council of the forum with its General Secretary, Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, in chair. The members on the occasion expressed grave concern over the continued house detention of the veteran leader, Syed Ali Gilani, terming it illegal and unjustified. “In fact the government of India and its local agents are so scared of Syed Ali Gilani that they want him to be always in cage. On one hand, police doesn’t allow Gilani to come out of his residence and, on the other, they are officially denying the imprisonment of the pro-freedom leader,” the statement added.
The meeting observed that the long and continued house imprisonment was affecting the health of the octogenarian leader. “The authorities are disrespecting their own laws with regard to prisoners. The court issues release orders for a prisoner but the police, in violation of these orders, continue to keep him behind the bars,” the members said, condemning the sabotaging of peaceful political programmes by police through use of brute force.
The members, according to the statement, also condemned the crackdown on the common people especially the youth and student everywhere in the territory and said that the authorities were playing a very dangerous game by pushing the people to the wall.
