‘Political prisoners face pathetic condition in jails’
Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), Syed Ali Geelani, Dr. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yaseen Malik expressed their concern about what it said as the “pathetic condition” of the political prisoners—who are made to face in and outside the state of Jammu and Kashmir especially in Tihar Jail.
In a statement issued here, JRL said that despite being political prisoners they are denied every right guaranteed in the national or international jail manual.
“Revengeful attitude of the rulers in Delhi has crossed every limit of heartlessness and in sensitivity. They willfully prolong their stay in jails through judicial victimization,” JRL said.
Leadership said that “slow and humiliating judicial process has ruined the life of so many young innocents and those who were arrested on factious cases are yet to be augmented with the documentary evidence of their crimes,” JRL said. They said that Sang Parivaar was only prolonging their custody using judicial tools and Shabir Ahamad Shah, Peer Saifullah, Altaf Ahamad Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Raja Meraj-ud-Din Kalwal, Nayeem Ahamad Khan, Shahid-ul-Islam, Farooq Ahamad Dar, Shahid Yousaf, Syed Shakeel Ahmad, Zahoor Ahamad Watali, Asia Andrabi, Fahmeedah Sofi, Naheedah Nasreen and others continue to bear the brunt of this victimization for more than a year now and the list of fake witnesses more than 300, and with such a judicial pace is same it may need more than 50 years for judicial pears to testify their charges. “It is unfortunate that the Indian fascist ruling class treat our resistance leaders like professional criminals in their so-called jails which have been turned into worst centres of interrogation,” JRL said.
