Srinagar: As Pakistan observed February 5 as ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’, Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Tuesday expressed his gratitude to the people, government and leadership of Pakistan for their unconditional and unflinching support to the political movement of the people of Jammu and Kashmir for the right to self-determination.
Mirwaiz in a statement issued here said the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Hurriyat Conference has always appreciated the support of Pakistan, at all levels, be it diplomatic, political or moral for the past seven decades, despite difficult and testing times for the country itself.
“We also appreciate the Government of Pakistan and its leadership who has always extended all possible support to our political movement for the resolution of Kashmir dispute,” Mirwaiz said.
Mirwaiz added Pakistan being one of the main parties to Kashmir issue has always played a frontal role at both regional and international level in highlighting the suffering and grave human rights abuse of Kashmiris as well as presenting the Kashmir dispute in its historical context.
Commenting on the completion of 26 years in prison of Dr Muhammad QasimFakhtoo, Mirwaiz said that the State has been following a revengeful policy against DrQasim in violation of all principles of humanity and justice.
Mirwaiz said that there many instances where prisoners awarded with life sentence have been released after completion their term but in the case of DrQasim, even after completion of his sentence he continues to be jailed in outside prisons, which is against ‘all principles of justice’.
“There are scores of prisoners like DrQasim who even after completion of their sentences are serving illegal detention for their political belief and who have completed more than two decades in prison,” Mirwaiz said, adding that “detention period of these prisoners being deliberately prolonged on one or the other pretext is sheer state vendetta.”
