Rasheed, Zahoor Watali, Shakeel Yousuf, Aslam Wani, Mehmood Topiwala, Ayoub Mir, Imtiyaiz Haider, Hayat Ahmad Bhat, Feroz Ahmad Bhat among others imprisoned in Tihar jail, Jodhpur Jail, Mehroli Jail, Kot balwal, Agra jail, Amphala jail, Haryana jail, Central Jail and other prisons where Kashmiri pro-freedom leadership is kept behind the bars irrationally and illegally.

A High level meeting held in Srinagar, Muslim Conference Jammu Kashmir apprehended that the life of Kashmiri prisoners is on risk because of zero facilities. These prisoners were detained for speaking up against the Indian illegal occupation of Kashmir and have been held without due process.

While expressing concern over the well being of Kashmiri political detainees in jails across the India, the Muslim Conference leaders said, “India could not weaken the freedom sentiment of the resistance leaders of IOK through such cheap tactics and lack of basic amenities within jails, which had led to serious health problems among prisoners, hence it is extremely worrisome that political prisoners are being treated like this. Silence of one and all, including human rights organisations, on this issue has led the authorities to show this indifference and inhumanity towards prisoners.”

Muslim Conference leadership collectively laid blame that lawlessness and arbitrary arrests of thousands of Kashmiris have been the cruelest part of the Kashmir. Many Kashmiris have been kept in prisons, some of them from the past thirty years, without any charges. Hundreds of jailed prisoners who were released after decades were declared innocents and charges against them were dismissed but the precious years of their lives were destroyed without any remorse and compensation which can be called judicial murder of justice by the custodians of law. There has been no relief from the judiciary as well and which all exhibits worst political vengeance by Fascist Indian regime.

They appealed the world community and global human rights organisations to take serious note on violation of human rights in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir that has been going on for decades.
