In the disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir, authorities today put seasoned leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference ( APHC ) and Chairman, People’s Political Party ( PPP ) , Engineer Hilal Ahmad War , under house detention. Er. War was supposed to visit Pulwama district today.
According to a statement issued to KNS, Police officials informed the Engineer Hilal Ahmad War about his house detention and said that he can’t move out from his Rajbagh office cum residence.
This unlawful and illegal action by J & K Police to prevent Mr. War from expressing solidarity with the families of the Mujahedeen, who were recently martyred by Indian troops in Pulwama. The PPP Chairman was to lead peaceful demonstrations against the killings as also in view of the programmes given by APHC to observe August 15 (India’s Independence Day) as a black day.
PPP Chairman also condemned the Shopian blast outside the mosque and termed the incident as unfortunate and un-Islamic act which cannot be condoned by any sane person.
The PPP spokesperson condemned the house detention of party Chairman in strong words saying it amounted to State oppression and a denial of right to expression. This highhandedness of the State shows the times we are living in. (KNS)
