Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has expressed grave concern on the plight of Kashmiri political prisoners languishing across all the jails in and outside Jammu and Kashmir including its incarcerated chief, Shabir Shah imprisoned in Tihar jail Delhi.
The JKDFP Spokesperson said in a statement that it is unfortunate that political prisoners of Kashmir are treated like professional criminals in different jails and the jails have been turned into worst centers of interrogation.
The Spokesperson said it is unfortunate that world famous resistance leader Shabir Shah has been kept in solitary confinement in a small unhygienic cell of Tiharj jail. He is continuously denied suitable medical treatment despite being suffering from many serious ailments. The courts are also feeling helpless in this regard as their orders are not being implemented.
While referring to all other political prisoners of Kashmir, the JKDFP Spokesperson added that they face the wrath of the jail authorities every now and then. They are treated as slaves, causing indelible prints of degradation and humiliation on their minds.
He said that all the political prisoners of Kashmir belong to respectable families with reputed backgrounds. Their only sin is that they demand their birthright of self-determination, which has been agreed and accepted on international level.
