Srinagar, March 07 (KNO) : Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir strongly condemns the Public Safety Act (PSA) slapped on its chief spokesperson Advocate Zahid Ali and terms it muzzling of peaceful voice by suppressive tactics. In statement issues to KNO Jama’at said, under concocted and baseless charges SSP Ganderbal today slapped Public Safety Act (PSA) on party’s chief spokesperson Advocate Zahid Ali who is under police detention since 22nd of February, 2019. ‘Zahid Ali was detained by police during midnight raid from his residence and was shifted to PS Shergadi where he was lodged for hours and then back to PS Kakapora. After a week he was shifted to PS Ganderbal where from he was moved to Central Jail Srinagar’, statement said. Today PS Ganderbal has implicated him under frivolous charges and slapped PSA on him which speaks volumes about the lawlessness in valley. Earlier Mufti Mujahid Shabir Falahi was also slapped by PSA and was shifted to Kot Bhalwal Jammu. Jama’at terms these detentions muzzling of peaceful voice by suppressive measures and appeals human rights organizations to take strong note of state sponsored terrorism unleashed upon innocent and hapless Kashmiris.(KNO)
