Srinagar, Nov 24 (KNS): A day after the state government announced amnesty to the first-time stone pelters of 2016, Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman and Jamia Masjid’s head cleric, Mirwaiz Molvi Umar Farooq Friday termed the government announcement as ‘a good cosmetic effort.
“Withdrawing FIR against so called ‘first time stone pelters’ looks more as a looking good cosmetic effort,” Mirwaiz wrote on twitter in this afternoon.
“If Govt is serious and sincere and there is really a change of heart and approach then all political prisoners should be immediately released, their freedom restored and AFSPA, PSA revoked,” he wrote. (KNS)
