Srinagar, July 04 (KNO) : Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) Thursday expressed serious concern over the continuous incarceration of its chairman, and senior resistance leader Shabir Shah. The party is also worried about prolonging the imprisonment of those languishing in Tihar and other jails of the State and outside. The party in a statement issued to KNO said that even after passing two years after the arrest of Shabir Shah, nothing has been proved against him. Shabir Shah was arrested by Enforcement Directorate in July 2017 in Srinagar and was soon shifted to Tihar jail, Delhi. JKDFP Spokesperson said that party chairman, Shabir Shah, languishing in Tihar jail is exhibiting tremendous steadfastness and velour despite his serious ailments and has time and again explained the importance of the resolution of Kashmir issue whenever he gets a chance to speak. “Even investigating agencies have miserably failed to prove anything against Shabir Shah the courts do not release him. It is more painful that courts are taking too long in completing the trial of the incarcerated leader who has been arrested in fake and fabricated cases,” he said. Spokesperson praised its incarcerated chairman, for exhibiting commitment throughout his life saying Shabir Shah is the name of a political figure who has not learnt to surrender his political ideology. “Shabir Shah has always propagated his ideology of resolution by political means and it is this peaceful ideology for which he is being punished,” he added.(KNO)
