ISLAMABAD, March 22 (APP): Pakistan expresses its serious
concern on the arrest/detention of Hurriyat Leaders, Syed Ali
Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Yasin Malik, Shabbir Shah,
Asiya Andrabi and others, in the Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir,
preventing them from attending Pakistan National Day reception at
Pakistan High Commission, New Delhi on March 23, 2017.
According to Foreign Office statement issued here
Wednesday, these arbitrary restrictions are against the
principles of democracy and freedom of movement.
We impress upon India to release the Kashmiri
leaders and representatives from Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir
so that they are able to attend Pakistan National Day reception.
