In occupied Kashmir, the forum patronized by the veteran Hurriyet leader,Syed Ali Gilani has expressed concern over the continued illegal detention of Hurriyet leaders and activist languishing in different jails of India and the territory.

The forum spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar while terming the statement of the puppet Chief Minister of the territory, Omer Abdullah as misleading and untrue in which he had said that less than 100 youth are in jails said that there were still more than 500 people in different jails of Kashmir and India.He said that the National Conference had got chance to rule the territory for 30 yearsbut the common man had neither seen any development nor got any respite.

The spokesman however said that according to the international law, all those detainees are considered as political prisoners who are related with the Kashmir conflict.

“The number of those prisoners has also crossed the hundred mark, who are detained in different police stations and interrogation centers and who have no records,” he added.

He urged the international community to take notice of the Indian state terrorism in the territory and help release all illegally detained Hurriyet leaders and activists.
