SRI­NA­GAR: In oc­cu­pied Kash­mir, the Hur­riyat fo­rum led by Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq has strongly con­demned the con­tin­ued house de­ten­tion of the Mir­waiz. The fo­rum spokesman in a state­ment is­sued in Sri­na­gar said, “By plac­ing Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq un­der house con- fine­ment, the au­thor­i­ties are pre­vent­ing him from car­ry­ing out his re­li­gious, po­lit­i­cal and so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.”

He de­plored that the house de­ten­tion of the Mir­waiz with­out any rea­son has be­come a rou­tine for the au­thor­i­ties. This ag­gres­sive ap­proach of the rul­ing class can­not stop the Mir­waiz and the peo­ple of Kash­mir from rais­ing their voice for their right to self-de­ter­mi­na­tion, he added. The spokesman also con­demned de­ten­tion of the fo­rum leader, Mukhtar Ah­mad Waza, at Sad­dar po­lice sta­tion in Islamabad, say­ing that his health was de­te­ri­o­rat­ing due to in­car­cer­a­tion.
